    i did feel it was alittle bit more than i wanted to spend, but most of the bags i've seen were around 200 dollars or more, they gave me 5% off, so it was around 170. If i dont like it when it comes i will just return it, i dont really want something huge, but i do want something to put all my accessories in, the foam case that came with the phantom is too small, cant hold my ipad air and my lens case, and my ipad hood. What kind of bad go you use Alok?

    I really don't care much for the carry bags, I had picked up a cheap $50 one, that gives me good service.

    Thanks, i'll keep those in mind! right now i'm lugging around the foam case that it came in, and another bag that holds my ipad, lens case, and hood. i leave the charger at home, so hopefully now i can put eveything together. We'll see how this bag is like when it arrives, i may still return it, but at least its something :)

    with that said, if i do return it and get a cheaper bag like the ones you linked to, i could probably get an extra battery to make it 3. Right now i only have 2

    I love it. Space for everything. I am even able to put a water bag in from a camelback hydration bag. I do a lot of bike riding and this bag is well constructed.

    That bag is fairly large. It's bigger than the foam case on ur back. Personally I haven't seen a slim backpack that Carries it all. I used a regular back pack and strapped it to the back to keep secure. At that price, I prefer to spend on the hard case instead

    I've had one for a few months now and always use it, I never put the P4 in the original case. That being said, I tend to keep my zippers in the middle, you know both equally zipped, and the main zipper catches the overhanging flap of fabric. That's not a big deal but it does happen, other than that it's golden.

    I found the pro craft back pack it's the same one that Dji has in there bundles.
    It's quite a bit cheaper.
    Anyway just another option

    The Drone Crates comes with plastic motor covers which I highly recomend no matter what backpack your using.

    For what reason. Mine has been going without for almost a year. I never take the props off except to balance.. All is well.

    The motors, and subsequently the propeller locking tabs, are positioned towards the backpacks least protected edge the zippered flap, at least on the Drone Crates I have. There's a pocket that I keep manuals in on the outside of the main opening that may provide a little more protection but I prefer the caps as well. I use my P4 off the back of a four wheeler quite a bit so perhaps i'm a little sensitive.

    so i the dronecrate bag is on its way, but i just saw that the PolarPro DroneTrekker bag is now 129 on amazon....this bag used to be around 200 bucks......i may return the dronecrate bag and get this one instead...but i'm gonna wait until it comes to see it in person before deciding if i'm gonna send it back or keep it....if i send it back, i'll probably grab this one...

    I plan on using broken or damaged props as motor guards. I have one right now. Will trim most of the prop off and just screw them on . A little more trouble.... but should work well.
