    So looking around I think I may have found a good case for the P2V with prop Guards affixed

    http://www.mycasebuilder.com/im2875-cus ... -case.html

    Storm IM2875 Waterproof Case - I.D. 22.5" x 21.1" x 11.4"

    My case builder has them and can custom cut foam for it as well Looknig at about $445 but that is with customized foam too

    I have a hard shell case but will not fit with the guards on and I don't want to keep removing the guards eventually a screw will strip or something will break

    Looks interesting anyway

    Take a look at the case on this page. It's $160 (I don't know what the shipping is). Someone on Facebook got it and really likes it. Their shopping cart is down at the moment. I just sent an email asking them what the cost of shipping to the states would be.

    the prop guards I see, seem they would produce drag and inconsistent flight.

    They block the pressure and divert the wind produced.

    Seems a better design would be a duct or a tunnel type that would produce constant pressure and magnify thrust.

    I may be wrong but current prop guards look primitive and more suitable for a toy like training wheels.

    I have used the P2V with and without the prop guards and, in my experience, they don't add any drag to the flight or anything different than without.

    While I agree with you, it's not always pilot error that causes crashes. Something might crash into your Phantom, it might act erradically due to a drop in satellite numbers or whatever it may be. The fact that so much money has already been put into my Phantom is the exact reason why I have extra protection.

    I just received my Tradecraft... Excellent and well designed.

    Delivery took longer than I would have liked, however, the weather (global warming) was a factor!

    I also have the tradecraft. My issue with the shipped design is that they did not alow room for the iphone/droid mount to fit in the case when mounted as the instruction suggest. If you mount it high on the arm as many do it fits ok. But I like mine close to the remote and you must disassemble each time unless you cut out an extra space.
