Drone Crates® DJI Phantom 3 Backpack - For Adv & Professional Models Reviews

Top Quality

Posted by Rod Blitvich on 5th Mar 2017

Took 3 weeks to arrive in Australia, apart from that all aspects of the product and service were first class. Plenty of compartments for cables, batteries, ipad, laptop, water bottle etc.
Zips seem high quality. Drone fits snuggly and safely offering good protection to the drone, the controller, ipad etc.
I flew the drone by a tree lined river and had to walk several hundred meters and cross a muddy slippery ditch to get to my spot. Could not have done all this without the gear safely and comfortably sitting in my backpack.
I was worried about the cost, but given the quality of the product and the protection it offers my valuable equipment both whilst travelling (car/plane etc) and on location - it is money well spent.

Bought this backpack August of '15. I have given it the true consumer test. I live in the mountains and have taken it on many trips, usually on my ATV over, under, and around trees in the many forests. As of now this backpack has no rips or tears and all eight of the zippers are still in their track and functioning perfectly. It is so nice to purchase some real quality outdoor gear these days. The glow in the dark logo is even still quite bright. Five stars!

Top Quality Pack

Posted by Chad on 17th Oct 2016

Attention to detail went into this pack. Ample padding, precision cuts, and plenty of storage for all the accessories. Read the other positive reviews, its everything they say and more. I am completely satisfied....with one little minor caveat. I have snap-on propeller guards, the base of which needs to be screwed onto the drone. It would be a pain to take these off and put on each time I wanted to transport them. The cutout could be a big larger to incorporate these, or have a pre-cut that can be torn out for those with these installed.

DJI P3A Backpack

Posted by Mel V on 16th Jun 2016

After extensive research on the Internet, I decided that the Drone Crates P3A backpack was the best bang for the buck. I looked @ the 5.11 Rush ($270), Go Professional ($190), other backpacks on Amazon, and the Drone Crates ($170). The less expensive packs had dividers to support the drone, i.e. Photography bags. I wanted the full foam protection so I marked off the cheaper stuff. The 5.11 Rush was too expensive. The Go Professional had issues on the zipper construction issues ( from reviews) so I went with the D-C. It has plenty of space for anything. I put tools, guards, chargers, etc. Construction was excellent. It's a military style backpack converted to hold a drone. You can see where a hydration bladder could have been placed. The pack is well padded and adjustable as to go hiking. I use the side pockets to hold a couple water bottles/sun screen/ snacks. The inside foam holds the drone snug. I had to modify the foam to hold my prop guard holders. Plenty of room for extra props, micro tool set, or whatever you need for your flight. I had a small rip on an inside pocket. That was my only problem. I called Kris from the company and he sent me a new bag, without the foam, the next day, free of charge. It was not a deal breaker but they wanted to make sure their product was perfect! Great customer service. There are molle attachments all over the front which you can attach a knife, flashlight, sunglasses. Excellent bag!! I bought from Amazon and I posted pictures there. You'll love this pack if you plan on taking aerial shots on the trail or off.

best travel bag for you phantom3

Plenty of pockets to add your accessories

don't buy a cheap backpack

Posted by Bill on 21st Apr 2016

Why spend a lot of money on something then put it in a cheap bag. This is a serious bag that will protect your drone and make it easy to carry it comfortably to where ever you want to take it.
Very heavy duty zippers plenty of storage to carry everything you need to get that perfect video or picture. The size is good and will fit larger people. Plus you don't want to look like a turtle caring around a hard shell pack. This is a great backpack

Great protection for my Phantom 3 Pro

Posted by Bob on 13th Apr 2016

I ordered this specifically to carry my Phantom 3 Pro on a plane trip, it was easy to carry and fit in a large plane overhead compartment with room to spare, it even fit in a small commuter jet compartment too.

Great quality, tons of zippers and individual compartments as well as three carry handles, one on top and one on each side. It has enough additional storage locations to carry all kinds of unrelated stuff which I look forward to testing when not concerned with traveling light and as compact as possible.

The only thing I would suggest to the manufacturer is a method of removing the backpack straps and padding which would make it even more compact for air travel. However I configured a fairly easy method of securing them down each side and buckling the waist strap around the back. With just the Phantom and its component parts inside it is light enough to carry easily with any one of the three grab handles.

Excellent Case for Phantom 3

Posted by Geoff on 3rd Feb 2016

This case is fantastic. I was very hesitant to purchase at first so I asked some questions and the responses and support (before even purchasing) were great. Quick to respond and answered all questions. The case itself is great quality, looks great and holds everything I need (Phantom 3 Pro, charger, batteries, prop guards, ipad, iphone, cables, tools, business cards, laptop and charger, usb drives, few snacks and the kitchen sink). Is durable, looks great, and protects my drone well. No rips, tears, or damage after almost 6 months.

Best Aftermarket Backpack case on the market today

Posted by Travis on 29th Dec 2015

First I must say my expectations were set high when this backpack cost more than the genuine backpack case from DJI. Here are some pros and cons of this backpack. This case is superior to the DJI case in that it can hold many more items! I have stuffed this case with many things including water for my hike and my (small) laptop for travel. The backpack adjusts very well, I am 5’10 and 160lbs and I can carry this without issue, though it is very big! The material used in this product is high quality and seems like it will last! My favorite part is the ‘drag’ handle that is at the top, this makes it super easy to grab and go. If I am just carrying it from my car to the house I don’t have to strap it to my back. The weight of the backpack is spot on with the quality of the product. The bag is not waterproof however I don’t plan on taking my drone out when it’s raining but you never know when you might get caught on the mountain side. If you take this bag traveling make sure you use this as your carry on as I am not sure if they would allow you to check in this bag. Plus who wants to throw their $1000 drone in with who know how many heavy suitcases. I will be testing this bag out for durability and hope that it holds up well to my rugged lifestyle. My only gripe is that the top that covers the drone is not hard so you must be careful and not drop anything on the outside of the backpack, as the motors are not protected! I do wish that I did not have to take the props off each time I used this bag but that is why I have a carrying case separate for it. I do wish the slot for the tablet wasn’t just for an ipad and was about ½ inch longer as I use a Sony Xperia Tablet which does not fit! This makes my drone very mobile which is why I purchased this. This bag has many compartments and can store tons of items in it and I doubt I will ever need a different carrying bag. The waste clips are excellent so the weight of the bag stays evenly distributed. Overall I would recommend anyone looking for a Phantom 3 backpack that is quality made to look into purchasing this one.

Excellent product

Posted by Chris Ayers on 25th Oct 2015

I wanted a drone backpack with excellent zippers. Got it with this product. And the good news is the rest of the product is as good as the zippers.
