    Here is what my wife made for my P3A so that i can curry it with the props on including all the accessories.
    I bought a very cheap school backpack that costs € 8 or a fiver £ and she modified it into this backpack that fits in it:
    -P3A
    -2x batteries
    -RC
    -Tablet
    -Goggles
    -Spare props

    This is a secondary backpack to carry the bird for short walking distances only say from my doorstep to the place i want to shoot.

    Kudo to your wife's crafting skill, but I wouldn't want to carry a Phantom in it. Too many exposed parts, especially with those props on, can easily hook onto objects and break them.

    Agree with the above 2 comments, not protected enough for my liking.

    Maybe DJI will not replace/repair any cracks that develop under warranty if they see how you treat it...

    I gave 1500E for my P3. I am not gonna be cheap on the carriage and protection of my 1500E investment. It's like buying a Porsche and looking for bargain tires.

    I have a proper back pack Chris this is just something to carry when walking from home to the park so i dont have to undo the props all the time as it is not good.
    Ps dont get me started about DJIs support and cracks. I treat my bird like a baby that is why on the other thread that i complaint about then cracks i posted pics of all the extras i have instaled. Lets get back to the topic do not get me started... this just to show that i like and take care of my bird so much that i asked my wife to even make a bag for it in addition to the proper backpack.

    That's cool.
    Just your statement of "£5 pounds can take you a long way, no need to spend crazy money on backpacks." might contradict how you are using yours :p

    Oh dear.. ok ok. I changed the statement now... i guess i was comparing it with the one in the pics i uploaded that costs something like €200.
    Good point tough...

    Very cool and despite possible exposure issues, the result is every bit as awesome and useful as the €200 commercial unit. Kudos to the wife.
