The Yuneec Typhoon line of drones is an interesting addition to the droning world that has hit all the right notes with drone enthusiasts world over. Living up to their tagline of “Unleash your creativity”, Yuneec seem poised to give DJI a run for their money by unleashing creative masterpieces. With these offerings they have put a lot of creative effort into the drones from their features to the designs. They are compact with impeccable photography and videography abilities. The brand consists of the

  • Typhoon Q500
  • Typhoon H
  • Typhoon H Pro

Being such sensitive pieces of equipment they require the utmost care in handling and storage. They are not demanding drones to carry around in terms of weight and dimensions unlike the bigger DJI Phantom Series of drones. However, they do demand the following characteristics in a pack or case because of their delicate and sensitive features.

Utmost Protection

Whether it is padded dividers or foam with cut outs, the backpack or case that holds the drone needs to be fitted with quality material that ensures a firm and secure grip of the bird. The exterior also needs to be able to absorb impact and keep out the dust, humidity and water. You should ensure that the case or backpack is structurally sound so that you can carry your drone around safely. This can be achieved by investing in a pack with a great suspension system or a case with sturdy handles that can withstand the rigor of use.

Compatibility

While the pack may look great from the outside it may not be the right fit for the drone. Look for universally compatible bags and those specific to this drone. If your drone does not fit inside the pack or case do not force it in because you may compromise the structure of the drone. Do not customize a pack meant for another drone to fit your bird. You risk not having a secure fit for your drone.

Capacity

The backpack or case needs to have the capacity to hold the drone and additional accessories without becoming overwhelmed. It is better if the interior is compartmentalized and everything is able fit into its designated slot. This ensures that the space within the pack is well utilized. If you have a lot of equipment to work with consider a pack with MOLLE on it for additional storage on the outside of the pack or a case that is fitted with a compartment or two on the lid and is big enough to take everything at one go.

Design

This does not really mean having a designer pack but find a backpack that blends in nicely with your everyday activities and does not make you stand out. If you have a small body do not get a bulky bag that will overwhelm your frame. Invest in a pack that sits very well on your back and remains comfortable even for long treks. This is not a fashion conscious decision but one that impacts on your overall health.

Each of the backpacks and cases reviewed below score highly in the above areas.

Protection

This backpack is a perfect fit for the Yuneec Typhoon H Drone. The exterior is well made with a hard shell which protects the interior from abrasions and other forms of impact. It is very well organized with compartments that hold the drone and its accessories snugly and securely. The case has good depth that allows you to immerse the drone without fear of it becoming dislodged.

Although the case is lightweight it holds your gear easily and keeps the elements out. One additional protective feature is the lack of a logo which can single out your pack to be stolen.

Compatibility

It is specifically designed for the Yuneec Typhoon H. The cut outs are very precise for the drone and its accessories. Because of the depth of the slots you need to place a piece of wood into the slot so that items like batteries do not fall too low. The propellers can be removed and stored separately so it is packed in travel mode. Seeing as this drone is small and compact it requires a nice compact pack and this is ideal.

Capacity

With dimensions of 19.7 x 16.9 x 11.8 inches it can contain the Yuneec Typhon H’s 520 x 457 x 310 mm and still leave room for the accessories. It will take the:

Because the interior is not fitted with any foam it has been fitted with padding around the pack to absorb impact and keep the interior well protected.

The zippers are sturdy ensuring the drone is secure within. The original drone box or its innards fit precisely into the pack effectively eliminating the chances of damage and breakage to the drone. It is a lightweight pack which also does not have the Typhoon logo on it making discrete and inevitably safer for the drone.

Design

The best way to describe the design of this pack would be functional. It has a very generic look that seems unimpressive when it is standing next to more intricate designs. What it lacks in appearance it makes up for in build. It is sturdy with a stoic look. The fact that you can slip the drone inside and in one piece is a well thought out detail. The shoulder straps are basic but have been securely attached at the top and bottom. They even come with pull down tighteners to enable you secure it better.
