    Anyone taken delivery of one of DJI'S new P3 back packs yet and know if the case will take the P3 in it with a camera guard on the bottom of the landing gear.

    I think Blade might be the only one yet with one of the new backpacks.

    Those things are a waste of money and may even interfere with the sensors??

    I don't have the sensors turned on and probably never will, someone on here the other week had a crash with a guard on and it saved his camera and gimbal. Little money for maybe a big saving.

    It dosen't interfere with the sensors, but keeps the landing gear from flexing. It also protects the ribbon cable, the camera and the gimbal. Like Leekiya said, cheap insurance.

    I also have one for P2V + from UAV Bits.

    It will require some modification to fit in the backpack.
