    Looking for a hardshell type of case but am open to other options saw one on amazon for $200.00

    Have no actively browsed the forum since I purchased my phantom, was wondering if there are better options out there. I have a blackpearl so carrying that would be a must.

    My Seahorse SE920 ran to about $123 + tax and you can customize the cutouts to whatever you want. This is how mines came out. If you happen to mess up, it's only like $65 for replacement foam.

    I've got this case and it is definitely durable and can take a beating. I've got a phantom 2 with zenmuse h3-2d, avl58, iosD mini and a monitor. Thw only problem that I have is my monitor mount has to be removed from the rc to fit inside. Also, it really isn't practical keeping the props installed as there is little clearance for them near the edges of the case. I've seen others use Pelican cases and they cut out to fit.

    Here are photos of my backpack case that cost $80 plus shipping.
    It fulfills airline carry-on restrictions
    -TACTICAL ALPHA OPS DIGITAL INTERNAL FRAME HYDRATION BACK PACK - Walmart $44.95
    -Fastcap 1-1/8 Thick Kaizen Foam, 2' x 4' $13.69
    -2-1/4 Thick Kaizen Foam, 2 ft x 4 ft Sheet $20.99
    I used a knife and hot screw driver for the cutouts. The screw driver was heated up with a blow torch (you could use an iron or stove), and was used to smooth the edges and create holes for the antennas. The case also holds my FPV monitor and chargers. Remaining external pockets can be used for anything. It also came with a hydration reservoir. I slip the props along the side of the foam. I took out the stays (stiffener) since they are not needed and I used the excess foam to create a lumbar pad.
