    its not clear if the case includes the foam insert cut to phantom 3 size, and no pics of the P3 in it

    The foam is not cut at all. It's pick and pull foam so you cut it out as needed.

    I have this case for my p1. It's awesome. But to clarify the foam is only pick and pluck on one of the 3 layers. The others you need to cut with a razor.

    When the pick and pull foam starts to break down and fall apart... and it will, you'll get nice tiny foam pieces inside your motors. I'm sure that won't hurt the motors.

    Hope $40 is worth it.

    A P3 would be a pretty tight fit height-wise in that case. I had my P2V in a similar case also advertised to be 8.5" outside, 8" inside, and decided it was too tight for my P3A - no room for padding. Ended up getting one of those cheap backpacks off ebay.

    I've read that some people spray the foam with something to keep it intact.
    [Edit: Plasti-dip]

    I usually use an inexpensive backpack to carry my P3 but thought that there might be a time or two that I could use a hard case. I can't see spending $200 for something I'd use a few times.

    It is an option.

    I have this as well for my P1. Works awesome for the price but I agree I don't think it would work with the P3.

    I just got mine for $50 shipped to the house! Took awhile to get foam cut but my P3a fits perfectly! It's a tight fit. If you do not properly get the bottom foam cut perfectly your P3 will not fit with props on. So far so good for me!
