SKYREAT Mavic Air 2 Case
What’s the first thing you do when you buy a new phone? To buy a case for it, so you can keep it safe. Well, the same thing should be applied to any drone. If you have a drone like the Mavic Air 2 which isn’t a cheap drone, the first thing you should do is to think about the protection. Because transporting a high-quality drone like the Air 2 isn’t the safest thing possible. That’s why you should consider buying a case for it like the SKYREAT Mavic Air 2 case.
SKYREAT is a company based in China, that produces accessories only for DJI and Go Pro products. They make everything from cases, through filters, to mounting accessories.
If you buy the Mavic Air 2 combo edition, you’ll get a shoulder bag with it and 3 batteries. But that shoulder bag has limited possibilities. First of all, it’s only a soft case which will help you to transport the drone and its accessories. But the SKYREAT case is a hard case bag which can protect the drone even if you drop the case. If you follow this Skyreat Mavic Air 2 case review you’ll see what it’s a great solution to store and transport your beloved quadcopter safely and securely.
- Specially designed for Mavic Air 2 drone;
- Compatible with standard and fly more combo versions;
- Dedicated compartment for aircraft, remote controller and accessories;
- Comfortable wrist strap and adjustable shoulder strap;
- Large internal zipped mesh pocket;
- Compact size (12.9 x 5 x 9.4″).
The case measures 12.9 x 5 x 9.4 inches and weighs around 700 grams. The DJI’s shoulder bag measures 7.8 x 7.8 x 5.9inches and has 500 grams. Both can store around a similar amount of accessories. But as I said, the Skyreat has a hard shell.
By design, the case is fully black from on the outside. On the Zippers, you can see the logo in red. On the inside the bag is black and it’s assorted with red zippers. You can carry it by the ‘built-in’ handle, you can add a shoulder strap to it. So you can carry it just like a briefcase or like a shoulder bag like the one from DJI.
Inside, the bag there is a foamed divided compartment for each DJI gear that is accessible with the drone. There is a dedicated compartment for the accessories: DJI Mavic Air 2 with battery, props, gimbal protector, 2 batteries (2 within the foam and 1 in the drone), remote controller, RC charger, Fly more combo charger hub, RC – SmartPhone cables. On the top flap, there’s a large meshed compartment for additional accessories like cables, propellers, USB drives.
The main advantage comparing to the shoulder bag from the DJI is the fact that you don’t have to disassemble the drone every time. As many of you know the Mavic Air 2 is a foldable drone, with removable propellers. The remote controller also has removable joysticks. And with the shoulder bag, you’ll have to remove the propellers and the joysticks all the time to make the whole stuff to fit in.
With the Skyreat bag, you just have to fold the drone and it can fit in the bag. This will save you a lot of time. Also, thanks to the hard shell, the case can be used as a take-off pad if the surface is not even.
- Suitable for both Mavic Air 2 combo and standard
- Don’t need to remove the propellers or controller’s sticks
- Adjustable shoulder strap with metal clips
- Foamed compartments
- Internal space can’t be reconfigured
- It’s only for the Mavic Air 2
The drone sets flat on the two rear motors in the case?
- It sits flat the same way as if you folded it and set on a table
Can I place my a Galaxy Tab on the top surface, not in the pocket?
- The drone sits below the foam inserts but the controller sits slightly above. I think you can still put your tab on top, but the best is to keep in the pocket
Is there room for an 8″ tablet in this case?
Is this case waterproof or at least water-resistant?
- It could handle a light amount of water, like rain. But don’t submerge in water.
Others opinion about the case:
“Fantastic case at a great price. I wanted something a little better than the Fly more included bag and have a little more room, this is it! Granted, it’s not bombproof like the true hard/waterproof cases but it’s good enough for me and light travelling. The biggest advantage is not having to pack and unpack several cables and peripherals just to get to the drone and remote. Being able to store the remote with the sticks on is great too!”-Joe
“Great size for travelling, and fits everything perfectly, however, the slot for the drone is too deep, which causes the drone to shift up and down during travel–this causes the blades to rise above the foam slot, where the weight of the drone is now pulling down on the blades. I’ve started to put a small microfiber towel over the drone to prevent it from doing this during travel but would be better if there was a strap or slightly softer, shallower foam where the drone sits.”-Jason
