    Hi all,

    Just got the DJI hardshell backpack and I'm trying to figure out how to fit everything in it. Does anyone have a pic of it fully loaded? Can't figure out where to put the prop gaurds.

    Nice! But I don't see how the guards will fit in there...

    My local dealer proposed to buy the prop guards because I'm a rookie.

    Props guards have saved me countless times. Just saying.

    I'm just guessing, but hitting anything, guards or not, is going to do damage. The guards might help to not damage some other person I suppose.

    Stay away from trees
    Stay away from buildings
    Stay away from yourself!

    YOU will likely be the first thing you almost run into!

    It recovered its self from the impact? I get not chopping through stuff. But any impact I figured would send it out of control either way.. so I just dont hit stuff. Well... I did almost hit me, and did hit the banister. But its just a $2 blade.

    The hardshell wasn't designed with the prop guards in mind. Just FYI.

    There's a slot below the right side motors.
    It fits a Nexus 7 or something else 20.5 x 12 cm

    I wish I would of know that before ordering. I knew that it was small (which I liked) but I thought I could store them in there some where.

    There is a space under the battery storage that I don't know what's it for. I thought about cutting it deeper and storing the guards there. I will have to see if it will fit. I'm going to have to trim around the pg holders by the motor anyhow.

    No .. it's a nice compact case, propguards won't fit in there
    Any case that fits a P3 plus propguards will be a bigger case .. but do you really want propguards anyway?

    just get a small pouch and hang it off the side. Prop guards are such a mission to put on and take off. You going to abandon them pretty soon anyway

    They're phantomguards right? fast detach etc. I think they're a good idea in close quarters and handy to detach for when flying in open areas. Like another member said probably just have to find a small bag to put them in. It's a sleek case all the same.

    I have the phantom guards on order will definitely use them when flying low and with family members around. But will take them off to avoid prop wash and camera obstruction (gimbal pitch up and forward flight) getting the same case too, just waiting for a NZ dealer to get them in, but under $190AU which is less than DJI and everyone else, some places trying to sell them for $280AU, f'ing ridiculous really.

    A full sized iPad can fit in that case if you remove the cover on the top lid, place the tablet there than put the inner cover back on top. It's a snug fit but I've seen someone else do that.
