    Does anyone have a case they are using with the Phantom 2 with gimbal attached?

    Thanks

    I've just ordered one like this.

    You can shape it how you need by plucking out the foam cubes. As the depth is adequate, the P2, Gimbal, and GoPro should fit fine – as long as you shape it well, the gimbal will be well protected.

    Check out eBay, there are quite a few suitable cases for sale. I've noticed there are some (quite pricey) cases knocking with purpose made laser-cut foam for the DJi's, but tbh that's overkill for me and I'd prefer to be able to design the foam how I need.

    These are the sort of specs for the pictured unit:

    External Depth: 220mm
    External Length: 570mm
    External Width: 420mm

    Internal Depth: 195mm
    Internal Length: 505mm
    Internal Width: 355mm

    Hope that helps ; )

    These cases will not fit. You need a depth of at least 9" to have some little padding top and bottom. I have one for my vision which is 8 1/2 deep and had to remove top and bottom layer except for 1/2 inch.

    Should be fine, the internal depth doesn't count the lid, but yeah it will be fairly tight – not the best if you intend to ship around on planes (not my intention). Have you seen a case like this in the flesh?

    Thanks, good idea but I would prefer something a little deeper. Would also like to have enough room for an extra battery or two and my go pro stuff

    Looks like the exact same case as I bought/posted above. That's a great price you can get on it for in the States!
