    Got mine today, wheeled version. Ordered about the 7th of this month. Got the tracking number yesterday, from FedEx. I live in LA area and it was shipped from San Diego. Hope that helps.

    Ok. Received my case today.....I'm actually NOT very impressed. Seems like it was rushed to production and the spacing is not very ideal. When the lid is closed I can feel it pressing down rather firmly on the motors and the top edge of my iPad. I use my GPC P3 Wheeled case as a seat when I needed and this one I wouldn't even DARE. In fact, I feel that if I were to suffer a solid impact on the topside of the case, the motors and the iPad would take the brunt of the violence. The Phantom doesn't even sit down all the way into the cavity that was cut for it.


    That being said, the externals of the case and the quality of the foam itself is top notch. I also enjoy that it's a somewhat smaller profile to easily be considered a carryon.

    Suppose I'll be sending a lengthy email to GPC this evening to figure this mess out


    I'll update if I come to any conclusions and feel free to let me know if I just got a Lemon.

    I wish my batteries would come already. I've been waiting forever!

    I emailed them and asked if I could return them or cancel and they sent me a tracking number almost immediately. Might have been a Coincidence I don't know.

    One battery sucks.

    So the P4 won't fit in the GPC P3 case?

    I don't think so. The legs are wider, and the gimbal clamp needs a recess on both sides.... Motors sit higher, different shape... Not to mention the batteries are differently shaped.

    I didn't try to fit mine in another case. The P4 comes with a nice case I think. I used it until I got my Go Professional case. This is my first Go Professional case and I am really happy about it. Very very nice. Seems water tight etc. it's actually a SKB case and I think Go Professional just puts their foam insert in it but I don't know for sure.

    Actually it might it, if you could modify yours or see if they would sell you the foam insert?

    I'm very happy with the P3 one. Was hoping it could do double duty with the P4. Maybe a new insert could work.

    This is what they told me.


    Hello,

    You can purchase replacement foam for the Phantom 3 backpack and case to fit the P3. But when it comes to the Phantom 4, the case and backpack have to be purchased new because it does not fit into the P3 backpack and case. I do hope I was able to answer your question. If not please let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you
