    hi everyone was walking through super cheap auto today and found this hard safe case for $59 (aus) thought what the hell if it dosn't work just take it back .. it is a hard case from top to bottom its got the pluck foam stuff but in order to fit the phantom you have to get the phantom to sit on the bottom of the case .. so just to check there was no pushing from the top of the lid i took the top foam from the lid and yep it closees ... but if i would keep the top foam part in as it will make it snug .. anyway his the pic see what you think...if this can work for you...

    50mm x 35mm x ( 14mm deep bottom part only ) not sure with lid closed but p2 fits in snug with blades off.. tx spare battery and spare blades also .. the foam is the pluck stuff and i might go to clark rubber and source better foam works well as a field case would need another one for spares and fpv but for $59 bucks don't think it will break the bank whak on a dji or go pro sticker and off you go like a pro lol ..
    And no i dont work for super cheap or are sponsored by them but the cases are made in china if that helps :)
    any way check out pic

    I got the case from Supercheap Auto in NZ. I had to cut the top foam part, but the lower trays were precut with small cube size pieces, so just had to make the shape I wanted. Cheers for the idea, saved me some cash.

    No problems just watch that pre cut stuff as I noticed it leaves slight particals on the phantom body no biggy but I was wondering what the black stuff on the body was .
