    Looking for Phantom 3 cases that I can use that allow keeping the props on the bird.

    The Microraptor Pro case has solid supports to help keep the foam in the lid from resting on the props.

    I would personally never store my Phantom in a case with the props on though. I don't think any case can completely prevent the foam from touching the props.

    Could you enlighten me as to why I wouldn't want the foam touching the props? Its not something I even put much thought on until you said something, and I would prefer not to mess something up, over something so easy to avoid. Thanks!

    I have a microraptor case, and do keep the props on. The case lid closes with zero effort, so my thoughts are that the foam on the lid is barely touching them. I do recommend the MR case, but I think I would have gone for "the white one" because I really like the cutouts on it (sorry don't remember who makes them now, but you'll know if you see it.)

    Edit:
    This is the one I would have purchased, had it been available at the time:

    I don't know about everyone else, but I have to store my tablet in my MR case wrapped in bubble wrap so that it doesn't move around.

    FWIW, I just ordered the MR case because of the prop pressure thing... I didn't want anything touching those. It would have been cheaper to get one that doesn't hold the props, but I don't want to unscrew them many times (wear and tear... and less grip possibly eventually from 'reverse thrust spin'??)... and also because I need to shoot quickly sometimes... and having the put the props on quickly would 'ruin the mood', so to speak.
