Anyone has perhaps found a backpack that could hold an R! safe & sound for MTB riding?
I've found it can be stashed into a 17" laptop suitcase:

( yellow rug is a microfiber rug used to protect the camera's lenses)

Of course, I can't really wear this on my shoulders while riding.....

Looking for a ( at least) 12" wide backpack, not too heavy, preferably able to hold also an hydration bladder.

Thanks in advance for anyone that will chime in..

I found a solution. Here you can see my RI backpack. It's a Salewa Randonnee' 32L pack, fit for mountaineering. It also has provision for an hydration bladder, which will prove useful during summer rides:

I built a custom protection case for the R1. This is the upper side, also working as a takeoff / landing pad for the drone:

The opening is on the underside; Foam padding protects the drone inside, and Velcro tabs keep it snugly closed:

The side are tapered to better fit into the backpack:

On the underside are little pop up feet to avoid wobbling when put on the floor to use as landing pad:

Thanks funonfly… since the original R1 backpack has been long discontinued, I had to resort to a little ingenuity.
Now on the hunt for some more accessories: batteries, spare propellers…
