    Folks,

    I bought two cases from TriFibre a few months ago and i love them to bits. Considering most places charge a premium for DJI cases, i tried to find a budget case.

    http://www.trifibre.co.uk/waterproo...atertight-photography-tool-box-with-foam.html

    I have two of them. 1 contains the quad with props attached, and all my spare parts, charger, tools. The other contains my controller with 7" screen still mounts, charger and battery for my groundstation, lipo charger for GS battery, 3 spare phantom batteries, spare phantom charger, aerials, and some other bits and bobs. Still loads of room for other bits.

    If i wanted, I could take out the spare parts and chargers and get all the flying gear into a single case - not bad for £40 including foam considering it's waterproof, VERY secure, VERY strong and can be locked closed too. The foam comes in several layers, and the top layer is perforated making it simple to get the shapes you want.

    Will upload some pictures of mine tonight so you get an idea of the size. Hope someone finds this useful!

    Your're not wrong - but I'm trying to help my UK buddies out. As far as I know, MCM are only stateside.

    Same case from the same place I got it from. Can't see how it can be beaten for £40. Everything else is £100+
