    Hey Guys, Which is the best Soft Backpack for the P3? I see there are a few out there.. Drone world has one for $300.00 that seems expensive.. Any one can tell me what they are using and links would be great ! Thanks in advance!

    I did a lot of research on this and went with the GPC Limited Edition

    http://goprofessionalcases.com/gpc-dji-phantom-3-backpack.html

    They also have a standard edition for $50 less and the reviews of it are pretty solid. I can't speak from experience with the pack as it's part of my birthday present that I don't get to open until next week. But from all the reviews and posts I've read people love these packs.

    I got mine from Advexure, it looks like they now have the Std in stock, but not the limited.

    Soft backpack.... why? Have you heard anything about shell cracks? I am pretty sure, that you have to stay away from soft backpacks. Get a microraptor or similar case.

    Wish I hadn't read this lol. I am already anxiously awaiting mine hoping it comes on the earliest date (July 27th) and now you throw in the wild card that it may come in earlier...! I am already past the 5 days, maybe it cause I ordered Brown

    This one is coming soon from DroneCrates. I looked at those amazon bags too but was concerned that over the long run they may not be good quality. Thoughts??

    I bought a Chinese special from eBay. Cost about $45 USD delivered. Not bad.

    My buddy bought the DJI hard shell backpack....wow, really nice.

    If I were to do it again I'd really consider the hard shell backpacks.

    Thank you! I ordered the Standard Back Pac before from your company! Thanks for your help! What is the difference between the Standard and Limited ED ?

    I mean, I think backpacks are a pretty straight forward concept now so there shouldn't be much concern with durability.

    IMO the foam makes it worth the purchase alone. If you tried to buy a custom fit foam insert from one of the other companies., they run $100. Once I have mine in I am going to be on the lookout for rolling luggage I can drop the foam insert into.

    I also have a large REI hiking rucksack I am hoping will accomodate my foam insert + DSLR photography gear
