    I have a moterbike and I notice the cases are quite expensive, way more than I'm willing to spend but I'm sure it won't fit in my current backpack but I do have a larger bavkbacm

    There are some cheap backpacks on eBay and Amazon for like $35

    OR get an AmazonBasics DSLR backpack (35 bucks) and configure the dividers for your drone.

    I have a nice back pack. Got into the routine now where I can drop it off my shoulder and be flying in mins. It does not stand out. Light and easy to carry and pack. Just dont like the thought of lumping a suitcase across fields too. :) I fly mine only in the countryside.

    A hard case is ok but not the most comfortable thing to stick on your back. Not the safest thing to drive with one hand on the bike handle and the other holding a suitcase.

    Its my intention though to perhaps get a hardcase to stick in the car etc but I am really getting to like my backpack. Its well padded. Lots of pockets. Easy to carry and as I have said before I blend in nicely whilst walking along. Dont think id be that invisible on the subway/tube though.
