    any ideas for carrying cases that work with Phantom 1 with prop guards - looks like I need about 20" x 20" x 9" deep ID.
    can't seem to find anything online.

    The case linked to in that thread does not handle the P2 with the prop guards.

    I'm also looking for that. There are lots of cases for the P2 without prop guards.

    That one for sure won't, but thanks for the try. It needs to have min about 19.5" inside clearance both dimensions.

    most "purpose made" cases I have seen, I dont think would take Prop Guards ...... most people want them small for plane baggage, so you might have to custom a pelican case .... size you'd probably need would be around here http://www.pelican.com/cases_detail.php?Case=1640

    You might be right. That's a big-*** case right there. Much bigger than I want to haul around.

    The other solution is to just forgo the prop guards, which is the way I'm leaning now.

    I have been looking for a case too. My question is why not take the guards off and on? I bought guards so I could protect the props but also people. We all fly around friends and family just to show our toy off. So don't bash me about it. :)
