    Hey everyone. I'm going on an 8 day hike in Sweden soon and I'm contemplating bringing my phantom. I'll be walking with a osprey backpack that will have some extra room since I won't be bringing a tent or food preparation kit. I'm trying to figure out the best way to safely/securely carry the phantom in the pack. Best idea I have so far is to secure the gimbal clamp, wrap a fleece around it and put it in a dry bag. Maybe put some caps on the the motors to prevent them fm rubbing on the pack. If I could find the perfect size Tupperware that would be great. I also thought about buying a used backpack and cutting out the foam so I bascically have a cube to place into the pack, but that's a bit more expensive unless I can find a good deal. Anyone been down this road already?
