    I would like to have a hard case for wet environments or other places. I have a very nice back pack, so I don't want to spend a bunch of money

    I have done pluck n pick foam cases for my other multirotors. I see MCM advertises cases on the forum. Who has one? Which one? Can you post some pics?

    I have a couple of MCM cases with the pluck and pick foam. They work great - aren't as aesthetically pleasing as the laser cut foam cases, but do the job nicely. I store a Blade 350 in one and my P2 in another. I'm at work and don't have access to photos. For the money, you can't go wrong in my opinion.

    Pluck n pick works great on my other MR. I read someone sprayed the foam with plasti-dip. It looked more finished. I want the smallest size that will fit the P3. If you remember to, some pics later, that would be great.

    Hi,
    Here is my set-up with MCM 22-24120 Case.
    As you see there is enough room for;
    • Phantom 3
    • 3 Bateries (One with the Phantom)
    • Controller
    • DJI Inspire Shoulder Strap,
    • Battery Charger and A small screw driver ,
    • Ipad Mini 2,
    • 2 Sets (8ea) props,
    • Sun Shade for Ipad,
    • Copper Antenna Booster (Not yet delivered, I'll place them between controller and Bird once I receive)
    And that is true I used Plastidip for the pick n pluck foam at the top. I believe it is a "must" to use foam for long time.
    I think it is more than enough! What do you think?

    Thanks! That's the $47 dollar case. Can't beat that with a stick. Looks like you have room for more stuff in there too. Did you paint that foam, if so with what?

    That is Plastidip Spray. Which makes a rubberish layer over foam. It is soft but keeps foam cubes together.

    Just received my MCM 22-24120 Tactical Case! It took 2 1/2 hrs of customizing and my P3a fits like a glove with Props on! It's definitely a tight fit but took extra time making sure everything was positioned good. Not bad for $50 shipped to the house! I'm on a budget and I will eventually step up and buy one the $250 cases.
