    I am wanting to put together a tool kit to keep in my case and was wondering what some of the basic tools everyone here would recommend and some of the "must haves" as well. Thanks for any advice you can provide.

    Yes! sure need a spare in the car or in the case

    5V battery pack to supply power to your phone or range extender, set of AA Batteries and some tape

    If you need to unscrew the prop guards just a tool for that.

    Since the P2V+ comes with a little prop wrench, you should probably include that. And I would include a small philips and flat screwdriver for emergency disassembly.

    Seems like you have all the bases covered. Nice setup. May I ask a questions without looking like to much of a newbie? What is the device that looks like a fish hook with line and several weights attached? Now, I am assuming you are not using the phantom as a fishing pole LOL LOL :D

    I have an old pocket-size camera case which contains a bits-in-the-handle hex driver (1.5,2.0,2.5,3.0mm), a 1/8" standard screwdriver, a #0 Phillips screwdriver, and miniature locking pliers, all 4.25 inches or less to fit in the case. That leaves enough room for two small O-ring screw-top pill containers for M3x8 and M3x12 screws for switching in and out of prop guards. The outside pocket has extra micro SD cards and a SD card adapter, plus the prop wrench.

    I'm using some of the things already stated, and seeing this post will use some of yours ideas too.

    In adition, in my backpack i carry also an anemometer, zip ties, two camera guards i made in PVC, elastic bands, two-way velcro, a xacto knife and prop guards (although i've never used them).

    Ough, just remembered, also 2 reflector antenas (for the transmiter and repeter) made roughly from a can of pringles, which i used two or 3 times.
