"Pilots, Thou shall have vanity." says the drone God...
"If you got a carbon fiber bird, you should have carbon fiber cage for it." Says our engineer at Bestem.

Blade Runner - Carbon Fiber Wheeled Case for Inspire 1. Pair it with our Inpire backpack, you'll have a system. We'll fine tune it then it's off to our carbon fiber shop. Hopefully we'll have it in 8 weeks, so hold on to your money!

Looks cool but no good for me I'm afraid...... International baggage handlers will smash that to piece's in 30 seconds. Carbon fiber is brittle...... Brittle and airline travel do not make for good friends.
I can only trust Peli.

yes the first thing i wanted to do w/ the storage case is so I don't have to retract the legs. so we came up w/ a backpack. this case will be a protecting cover for the backpack. with the volume we do in carbon fiber motorcycle parts, we can make the carbon shell at a very reasonable price. Gopro and tradecraft all make great heavy duty cases, i just wanted something easy to carry and look badass.

Great CAD work! What are you using?
solidworks all the way, it's really amazing software if you spent time on it. we got a wiz-kid from Ga Tech doing all the designs.
all I have to do is just point fingers :D

Sweet and thanks. Does that software also pump out the spec for sending it in to production?

yes it does it all. it's been the industry leader for the last 10 years. if you define material properties it'll also simulate stress test. if you plugin HSMworks it'll do CNC toolpath. it's not capable doing weather forecast, yet...

Another 8 weeks or so, that's the normal turnaround time.
I should have a good guess on the price next week, it's up to the mold makers...

+ Solidworks can give you Force Analysis and Fluid simulation. The company made this software for jet design.
