    Pretty sure this is the same as the one in Maplin that I use.... cost me £49.99 and works flawlessly. I am a cpc customer so i was kinda gutted that they had it cheaper! :lol:

    It's very similar but not quite the same (I have both). The CPC has double latches (4 in total) and is actually slightly deeper than the Maplin one so the props are protected a little more when the Phantom is in there.

    To be honest, given a choice of the two - I would say the cheaper CPC is actually better quality as well as being fractionally larger!

    lol damnit... The Maplin one is pretty tight to the prop nuts.... good in some ways so stuff doesn't crash around. Bad if anyone put something heavy on it!
    Might bag myself a CPC one sometime. You can never have too many big cases! :lol:

    Hey Dewey,
    Don't suppose you know the product number of your Maplin case. I've just ordered the £49 version (need to be sure) as CPC cancelled my order.
    It turns out they have no stock left, and Customer Services informed me it would be at least 2 months before any more will be in

    Cheers
    Adrian
