    Just trying to find something to make my Phantom 4 case last as long as I can. I have no idea if this stuff will hold up, but it is worth a try!

    The styrofoam case that comes with it, not the Phantom's body.

    That's actually a good idea. I don't know how well it would stick to the surface but it sounds good.

    It's not the P4 you should worry about, it's your lungs.

    Thanks for the helpful video.

    Yes I would typically recommend doing this outside or with a mask on, but it was windy today and I couldn't find my mask. Thanks for watching.

    Something like rubberized pickup Bed liner might even be better, but it would need to be the one that sets up hard.
    Plastidip is pretty awesome anyhow. !! Keep us posted

    Yeah someone had mentioned bed liner before. I had extra cans of plastic dip so I went with that. Thanks for watching. I will update in a week or so.

    Are you sure plasti dip doesn't dissolve styrofoam?

    Great question. I tested it on a small piece of scrap before hand. It dried without any ill effects

    Does it result into hard plastic like coating or you still get foam feeling?

    I was thinking the same thing, but I am probably going to lightly fiberglas mine....or use some carbon fiber cloth instead of the glass cloth. Either way the Fiberglas/carbon fiber case would make the factory case look and act like a hard case

    It's neither, really. It's definitely not hard, but it feels like rubber.

    The case that comes with the P4 is definitely suitable until you can pick up another one. That way you don't have to destroy your P3 case
