    Other than the very beautiful and very expensive DJI backpack, I would be grateful to be pointed in the direction of alternatives? Thank you.

    Does anyone know if the foam case will fit in a decent size backpack?

    After owning 4 different backpacks, I like the Think Tank backpack best. It's a bit pricey at $240, but it's extremely roomy inside compared to the others that use a custom fit foam insert. I especially like the hip belt when I go on long hikes. It holds all model Phantoms, but the interior walls can be moved around to accommodate special items, making this not only one of the most roomy backpacks, but one of the most flexible. I'm pretty sure it can be configured to hold an RC with a DBS mod antenna installed, but I don't think that's true with an FPVLR antenna, due to total height.

    However I have noticed the ProCraft is very much like the ThinkTank at a much lower price of $119. If I had to buy another backpack, that's what I'd buy. It's also re-configurable, roomy, and includes a hip belt.

    Manfrotto d1 look like a comfortable backpack, not sure how much protection you're looking for

    Just ordered the Pro Craft for 119. I'll let you know how it is. But it reads and looks great for the price especially.

    I signed up for the email newsletter on LowePro's website and about 10 minutes later I got a 15% off coupon code. They included free shipping. Give it a shot.

    Did the same. Mine arrived a few days ago. I love it. The P4 is snug and I have room for everything, including my iPad Air 2. It's also pretty comfy. Walked a few miles with it on today.

    That looks like a nice backpack, looks like high quality materials. It's almost small enough to meet the 20X14X9" carry on limit, only 1' too thick. I'm sure you'll be fine to travel with it as carry on, most airlines aren't super strict on that. It doesn't show their method to separate multiple batteries in the zippered cubby, so you might want some LiPo battery covers. I think you'll get tired of unzipping and those 2 inner cubby pockets. I suppose you can leave them unzipped, since the pack lid will be zipped, holding the cubby tops closed.

    If you guys like this my wife made for my P3, maybe we can make them for the P4.

    Vanguard Uprise II 48 modified with custom made cushions and pouches. Has plenty of room, even for my winter coat, iPad, extra batteries and more.

    Great to hear! The tracking info says it will arrive on Monday, sooner than I expected for free shipping. I like the flexibility it offers.

    Lots of excellent backpacks have already been mentioned. If you're looking for a lightweight backpack consider this one.
