A portable 17.3-inch tablet for flying (& how I made a custom harness for it)

Everything packs up into one regular backpack. I cannibalized an old Makita tool bag to utilize the strap. The dimensions matched very nicely, so I only had to remove the top and bottom of the bag and add my own wood inserts. I sealed off the bottom with wood and attached another more custom piece to the top. Basically, the tablet has a folding stand kinda like a laptop and the stand part slides into the bag and hooks into the custom templated maple top piece. I think I'm going to add a second strap to help it hang more level, for now it props against my abdomen while I fly. But if I try doing too much walking around it wants to slip to a vertical position, and I usually have my hands full with the drone remote so it still needs a little work. Pretty awesome for now though! (Galaxy View 2 tablet w/Skinomi Anti-Glare screen protector)
