Gone are the days of massive, oversized hulls that required a team to operate and transport
In recent years drones have gone through something of an aerial Golden Age. Gone are the days of massive, oversized hulls that required a team to operate and transport. Limitations have literally flown out the window and as technology has improved, aerial platforms have become more portable, flexible and reliable. Drones have shrunk down to a micro size that can fold and fit into your hand, allowing drones to be used anywhere, at any time.The technology has evolved to harness the new changes in controller and transmission systems, operating with better cameras and longer duration lithium-ion batteries, drastically improving flight time and overall capability.
The innovation in drone technology has made aerial platforms more accessible to everyone
This continuous evolution of drone platforms has seen new drones hit the market in numerous sizes, hull shapes and capabilities. The innovation in drone technology has made aerial platforms more accessible to everyone, offering flight operations for a wide range of people, from veteran professional operators to new enthusiasts. However, the one element that doesn’t change… The need for protection and the safe transportation of a drone’s sensitive avionic components. Drones are extremely capable, but they can also be fragile, and in understanding the various options you can select a case system that works the best for your platform.

Why use a hard case for your drone?
A drone at its very core, regardless of size, payload or cameras, is an incredibly powerful tool in a lightweight package. However, to maximize the capability of a drone platform, many designers have stressed the ratios of weight to power and lift.
To accomplish this, drone manufacturers rely heavily on hyper-light materials and components, maximizing rigidity and strength, while keeping weight to a minimum. Many materials are composite in nature, or designed out of weight focused materials including: carbon fiber, magnesium, titanium, FRN (Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon) and plastics. These materials are modern wonders of science however, they are extremely prone to damage if not transported correctly.
Even slight bumps during transport, or collisions from other objects have the potential to cause catastrophic damage. Protecting a drone for transport and storage can be one of the most important aspects of drone maintenance and safety. Fortunately, NANUK Hard Cases offer tough options for almost any design and environment.
It’s simple enough to build a box and throw all of your gear into it… However, the real challenge with hard cases lies within the perimeters of design and logistics.
NANUK has taken a design principle that focuses on how people use their drone gear in the field. How people both transport and store their gear, and the methods to make the equipment available and ready to use as quickly as possible. This design language is reflected in the entire lineup of NANUK drone cases and the custom inserts designed specifically to boost efficiency in the field. Whether you are wheeling your drone case through an airport or dragging it through a muddy field, whether you fly a small and foldable Mavic or a large Matrice, there’s a NANUK case built specifically for your drone needs.
When investing in a bag or case, think of it as an investment in your expensive drone equipment.
It’s important to pick a system that not only protects your equipment, but also stores your drone equipment effectively and makes your life easier. A case should function as a full system, one that can PROTECT, CARRY & ORGANIZE your gear. When shopping for a new drone the sheer number of options, styles, and builds can seem daunting…
Shopping for a hard case can be a similar situation. With so many sizes, shapes and colors available, it can be a tough process to pick out the right one. Drone cases and bags can be broken down into a couple groups based on materials and level of protection. These categories can be used to guide through the options and pick a case that best suits the operator’s needs.
Comparing Drone Protection Options
When picking a drone bag or case it is extremely important that you pick an option that will keep your gear protected in the environments that you usually operate in.
The Soft Bag Options
The most common options in the market would be the soft bag, such as a backpack or handbag, along with common EVA semi-hard-shell cases. These are typically the less expensive transport options, often smaller in design and less protective, only intended for occasional use. While the cost can seem like an initial factor it is important to consider the lifespan of the drone, and how it will be used. These bags and cases are designed to be small and unobtrusive. They are the small option that you’d throw over your shoulder, to take with you on a light day trip.
However due to the lack of protection these soft bags and cases offer less resistance from the environment, and contact damage, usually non-waterproof and non-dust resistant, you wouldn’t want to allow these bags out of your sight.
Small bumps from external forces could damage the gear within, which is not an ideal situation for a fragile drone. The reality of drones is that when something goes wrong, it goes wrong extremely fast. You don’t want to open your drone up to damage from simple transport, especially when minor damage can cause catastrophic issues in flight later.
The Hard-Shell Case Options
The hard-shell case takes protection to the extreme, with a rigid exterior shell that forms both the structure of the case and also a physical barrier to the elements. The hard shell is crush resistant, dust-proof and waterproof, allowing for protection of your gear in almost any environment. These cases can be stacked on top of each other for storage and transport, and can be locked from the outside making them safe for air travel. A hard case is a little extra peace-of-mind, knowing that regardless of what the environment throws at you, the gear inside the cases will arrive safe and ready to roll.
The NANUK hard case line allows you to choose the right sized case for your drone setup and equipment, giving you the ability to transport your drone safely in a customized configuration.
There are multiple case sizes and foam inserts, allowing perfect customization for your drone equipment needs. For smaller, foldable drones there are cases like the NANUK 925, while scaling up in size to the larger multi-rotor setups you have larger behemoth options like the 960 and 970. The design ethos with the team at NANUK was to build the cases from the ground up, build around the equipment and how that equipment will be used. This platform of logistical design, creates the most streamline option for case protection.
Transport your drone safely in a customized configuration
Each NANUK Hard Case model offers multiple options, including: colours, foam inserts, decal wraps, and even lock-latch mechanisms.
Every case maximizes customization with multiple foam inserts, allowing the user to decide exactly how their gear will be stored. There are drone model specific foam inserts with laser cut partitions for drone hulls and accessories, along with the more traditional pluck foam cube inserts, allowing for any shape within the foam tray. The insert design allows drone operators to transport the gear in the most organized layout possible.
