    Anyone in Canada/USA looking for a case to hold your Phantom, Radio, Batteries and all the other bits you need in the field. Here is the lowest cost option I have found. It is $37 + $8 shipping + 12 tax. So for $50 to your door anywhere in Canada. Shipping to the USA is also reasonable. If you search the internet for Duratool D00486 you will see lots of people in the UK (and members of this group) are using this case for Phantoms.

    Got the same one from Amazon at about the same price (out of stock now).
    I did NOT use the top pick-n-pluck pad but add the kid play pad to the top for more rigid hold.

    It has been months since your post, so I just want to ensure that your link http://canada.newark.com/duratool/d00468/tool-box-waterproof-515x435x225mm/dp/58M5508?Ntt=58M5508 still points to the correct item that will fit the DJI Phantom.
    Your post description listed Duratool item# D00486 which pointed to an 8MM drill bit. Simple typo I believe. :)
    I ordered my Phantom last week, expecting it tomorrow, and I want to ensure I order the correct fitting case. FYI: Being months later, the price is now a little higher, $43.36. :)
    Please confirm correct item. Thanks in advance.

    Seems that case does not have any foam in it at all, much less the pluck-foam. In my experience replacement pluck foam panels are prohibitively expensive. I've tried before to get panels for my assorted peli cases but simply cannot bring myself to pay 75% of a new case price for just foam.

    It seems that this box is supposed to come with foam.

    It is my understanding that if you just get the case (Part #D00468) that it doesn't have the foam. However, it you get the part 58M5508 then it includes the foam.
