    I have FC40 with bandy legs and 15 mm risers . Just fits in the soft backpack .. Had to hack a bit of the packing foam but all fits now.. Props go in the lid pocket .

    Pack is about 20cms deep so the motors stick out a little bit above the foam - Still zips up closed ..
    Doesn't seem to have done any damage to the FC40 or backpack yet ..
