    My wife and I love to go out cruising on our (motor)bike. Now we can combine it with another great hobby of flying my quad. Anybody else doing this? What case are you using and how do you secure it?

    I've been shopping for a backpack. The best spots to fly around here are all places i'd much rather ride to.

    I got 2 of these and love them. I keep my quads in car at all times now ready to go.

    also it has bottom and waist strap to help keep it tight on back when I ride my bike(human power).

    are there better cases ? for sure.
    but for under 50 and free shipping cant go wrong...

    For travel on my Spyder RS-S, I am still using the box my Phantom was delivered in. The factory cardboard. I will eventually buy a decent case or back pack. But for now, I simply bungee the box which is in a canvas bag, to the rear passenger seat and hand holds. It works well enough.

    I do take it on my Connie. Since i have a top Givi case, I put the P3A in there and the rest in my laptop backpack which goes in the sidecase. I'll post pics later tonight after work.

    No problem on my bike with the P3P, i use the backpack from firstpersonview but i must admit its not very often because if i ever was to be involved in even a minor accident the P3 is toast after sliding down the road, no worries about me or the bike as they are insured, there again would they pay for a P3 on your back if the accident was not your fault?

    My DJI hard shell back pack fits in my road glide ultra trunk just fine with room to spare.

    Very similar back pack here, I have a softly sprung trail bike and all is well with it on that.
    However on a more road orientated bike with firm suspension it tends to jiggle a lot more
    You might consider a bit of extra foam or something around the gimbal and camera, because even with the supplied guard on the whole thing bounces a fair bit..
