    The case I bought is great and well-built. I have a Pelican case that was included with a firearm and the MCM case is every bit as well-built. The Pelican does have a slightly more appealing finish to it as it's more shiny than matte but most people probably don't care about that.

    My issue is that it isn't deep enough (I bought model 22-24120, I didn't buy the "deep" one) and does put some pressure on the Phantom 3 when closed, even with no foam in the bottom (just the top). I would exchange it for the deep one but I bought it on Amazon and return shipping seems like a hassle and expensive since it's so big and heavy.

    Also I would suggest to make all of the foam pick and pluck instead of just the top layer.

    I actually haven't even cut the foam on mine yet because I haven't figured out the best way to do it.

    Actually now looking at my order I see I bought it on Amazon but it was sold and fulfilled by MCM. Still, I bet return shipping is almost as much as I paid for the case.

    Thanks for the feedback. Return shipping will be a bit, yes. It may be better to just order the deep one and keep the other for another application.

    It looks like we just started a special today, which is $6 flat rate shipping and 15% off using promo code EMD387 at checkout.
