Twitter follower Mikey Leidig of Green Bay, Wisconsin, is about to get Lite! He and his drone are the proud owners of an awesome new DroneHangar LITE backpack case we gave away in celebration of “Drone Month” in our #ProtectYourDrone Contest. We had the contest through the month of May to bring awareness to International Drone Day, held May 7 this year.
About International Drone Day
The founders of That Drone Show started International Drone Day in 2014 to promote worldwide awareness of the many ways drone help make our world a better and safer place. The website says of this year’s event, “Over 40,000 drones are sold each and every month, people love
flying them however many people fear drones and work to pass laws banning drones. If nothing is done, the probable almost certain future is that there will be less and less places to legally fly and the world will lose out on the many amazing things drones can do for the world. […] we created a day to celebrate drones and their uses and to educate the media, public and local governments about the many good things drones are used for. We [had] 150 simultaneous events happening all at the same time on Saturday May 7, 2016.”
Check out this video recap of some of the media coverage this year’s event attracted.
Why mikey & His drone will love their new DH lite case
At just five pounds, the DH LITE backpack case is a lightweight that can hold its own in any heavyweight match. The case is constructed using 1000 Denier Cordura nylon and is fitted with the same water-jet-cut foam cushioning system as the DH PRO. And it lets you carry just as much— from your drone and spare props to extra batteries, the charger with cords, the radio controller, tools, and a few extras. The DH LITE was also specially designed to hold your drone with its GoPro attached—ultimate convenience! Check out a few of the DH LITE’s other unique features:
- Extra zippered compartment for props and miscellaneous stuff
- Adjustable, removable heavy-duty shoulder strap
- Heavy-duty reinforced nylon web strap handle
- YKK heavy-duty nylon tooth zippers
Thank you to Mikey and all our other great followers and friends who also participated in the giveaway!
