    For that price, with an electric butcher knife you can cut the battery compartments to fit the P4

    Choose one of the $22 ones from East or West US warehouses and the shipping is $11.

    In lieu of driving 4.5 hours each way to a Microcenter for a DJI backpack, is this about the best deal I'm going to find on a case? I realize it's not a backpack, but better than nothing...

    Saw one ingenious bright fellow, strap his similarly sized hardshell case, to an external backpack frame, and away he went.

    Now that is good old fashioned Merican ingenuity right there!

    It's about $40 in the US for it... not bad, but not real hard to find similar deals.

    That looks a lot like the one I got free with my P3. If so, it's not a great case. Pretty cumbersome and the foam cutouts don't secure the quad at all. I got a $30 knock off hardshell backpack and it's much better.
