    There's a very comprehensive list of Phantom 3 cases here.

    Hey steve i don't want to complain but each of your questions has been answered hundred times. Think about if each new p3 owner keep asking same things again and again, the result would be an unreadable section. Use the function search.

    Are you mostly interested in a back pack style, or of a heavy duty hard case? Check out a few camera stores, many carry DJI phantom now. As there are many styles to choose from, choosing was fun, but I bought the DJI hard shell back pack and so far, I'm am truly loving it.

    Steve I have the B&W type 61 and the DJI Back Pack.

    I tend to use the back pack more due to me not driving currently.

    Find the back pack more convenient, but if you are driving and tend to drive to your flying point then I recommend the type 61 case as its a tough case.

    Might have tougher ones out there but that does the job fine for me.

    RC Geeks sell them and so do Quadcopters UK.

    I have a microraptor hard case and to be honest I really don't like it that much.

    Got the dji hardback one. There's similar at a much cheaper price. But no room for an iPad and no room for the props. Why not have room for the props? Had to attack it with a knife to make one of the side pockets dealer. Not what you want to do on an expensive case. Go professional backpacks look like more room.

    Placed my extra props in the right side slot, the set I fly with get tucked into the charger slot. IPad Air 2 goes under the foam of the back/lid section. No hot knife cutting or other remodeling necessary.

    Works for me. Just wish it had a couple more battery compartments.

    If you're on a budget, the $50 backpack I bought on eBay works pretty darn good. I used it last week on vacation and have no complaints.

    https://goo.gl/photos/zwDByKqvRoVFCmxV8[​IMG] I picked up one of the generic backpacks from China on eBay, and the inside molding fits my P3 perfectly. I think if I were to take it a long hikes I might get the stitching reinforced, by so far I haven't had any issues with it. I think it was $35 or so.

    I use a ProCraft holds 6 batteries plus one in the phantom. I think it has the best layout out there. Couple hundo but you won't regret it....

    This is what I picked up and it's awesome! Not so easy on the budget though. Holds 7 batteries and all accessories including extra props and my iPad Air.

    That does not qualify for carry-on for airlines. Good luck checking it.

    The lid foam needs to be turned around for sure.
    But it appears they have a lid for a case where the radio lays flat, & a
    Base foam for the radio to stand upright. Google on that! Hahaha
    My favorite and first Google Search is for Yahoo. ;-)
