    And I was stupid enough to pay $150 for the DJI back pack last year. This looks identical. In my defence, even the knock off ones were $100 on eBay back then.

    Looks good, just don't crush your RC antennas with that strap.

    Couldn't help myself for $35. Plus $10 shipping. Still seems like a great deal if the quality is any good. I've been using the big aluminum case that came free with my P3. It's pretty cumbersome and doesn't hold the quad very securely. Hoping this will be a better for rougher terrain

    Everyone puts the remote in the wrong way....it goes in with antennas on bottom so they are not touch g anything. Check inside there is a ridge where metal bar sits. Cheers

    I just tried. the controller doesn't even fit the other way. the antennas are wider than the opening.

    It's only showing AUD$114.11 for me. Maybe because I'm in Australia?!

    I retract my previous statement about the controller. My case must be a different revision; the controller opening for mine only works one way, while this one the OP has looks like it can go a few ways. The remote opening is completely different. Here is mine:

    I bought one and it looks just like the one that DJI sells . Why pay for the name.

    Looks like we'll have to do some cutting to get it in with the camera guard :)

    Does anyone have this one and the DJI branded one? A side by side in depth review/comparison would be nice.
