Aluminuim Carrying Case for Yuneec Typhoon H Drone with Insert Foam
yes but 30 bucks shipping, but still really nice
I do like my backpack. Used once to walk to a flying location. Was comfortable to use.
Nice looking, Brian, and to me shipping is 15.88. Notice though, only the frame is aluminum, panels are ABS plastic.
Anybody know if it works if we ever install the RealSense module?
all cases for the typhoon H will work with real sense I'm sure.. it does not protrude out anywhere
Does not ship to Australia!!! Bugger....
get some in the states to get it for you ans ship it probably cost 200 to ship LOL
Be careful. Most of the cases are NOT cut to cradle the airframe body so the H sits on the landing gear. The landing gear are not really built to support the body during transport. Check out the insert your H came with. The landing gear does not touch the bottom.
But that is a nice looking case.
Already onto it. I have a buddy in upstate NY and have contacted him.
Interesting point about the landing gear not being supported - I had never considered that.
8.8 pounds empty? Holy camoly!!! Better hit the gym while you are waiting for it to arrive.
The weight isn't an issue for me. I just need something that can take a fair bit of 'rough and tumble' as I live in a very remote part of our country and even driving on the tracks up here can damage gear if it isn't packed properly. I've been using the original box and this is working okay, but it certainly isn't a long-term solution.
Nice looking case,the only deal breaker I can see here is that it looks as if it holds less batteries than the original packaging and a lot less then some of the other cases that are available.
Ordered this case and it came quickly and got it today.... Made in China for the "H480" (Typhoon H). It isn't heavy and does have plastic panels with a metal frame...But, seems to be a good value. The H sits pretty snug inside the foam and I actually had to push the prop arms in more to slowly slide the H down into the case....Once it is it, it really isn't moving. I really wish I knew what all the other cutouts are intended for...
It does rest on the landing gear but there is foam between it and the bottom of the case.
The foam was in layers and glued together and then cut.... There actually is a wave to the cut from the top to bottom and not a clean straight cut...But, one could consider this to hold the items more snuggly. I also noticed some strands of glue (like cobwebs) that I easily cleared out in some of the sections.
Can you stand on this case...NO...is it as safe or safer then the backpack...Probably. It does look nice but probably won't replace the $350-$400 hard plastic/water proofed case. I have the backpack, a modified Q500 case, a hard case for my Phantom, and a LowePro Drone backpack. I will be using this new case and glad I got it. It also looks more "rich" then pulling out a drone from a soft-sided backpack when showing up at a photo/video job.
I'm using a soft backpack that uses the Yuneec foam insert. Got it on Amazon for $44 sold by BODAJING but is currently unavailable. That's too bad because it works fine for me. I've emailed the supplier to find out when more will be available. I'll let you all know when I find out.
Thanks for the updates on the cases. I'm very keen to place an order but will just wait it out a little longer so I can make the 'right' choice.
