    Well its not exactly super light portable backpack but its roomy enough for all my stuff. Room enough for more and i can leave the props on if i want (not a fan of taking them off and on), althought ill still check for tightness preflight. And with locks its good enough. 20160209_130417.jpg

    How can you leave the props on? It looks like the top must compress against the quad quite a bit. Doesn't it bend the props downward?

    Hope I can remember how to do this :eek:, if not, we'll all know soon...

    Since this pic was taken, "this bird has flown". Unrecoverable crash on March 12, 2015 and all because I was so into the FPV, I didn't see the battery voltage was in dangerous territory on the OSD and I was about 4400 feet away over a swamp. Duh! So now I have a replacement P1.1.1 and this time WITH A TRACKER!!! Also the Black Pearl in the pic now has retractable sun screen, which gives me more storage room. I'm about to order new pick n' pluck foam inserts for the whole case, cause things are getting a little loose.

    Anyway, the case was around $60.00 if I remember right and has retractable handle and wheels. Not too shabby...:cool:

    I chose this setup because I have the dbsmod antenna mounted and didn't want to take it on and off.

    Notes: Under the landing gear is 2 inches spare space where I keep my 6 pack of polar pro ND filters, the area to the back of the P3 is 6 inches deep and contains my lanyard as well as all my props in the dji bag. Enough room for 4 batteries and an ipad air 2.

    Future plans are to cut out an area to the right of the P3 for various accessories as well as the battery charger.


    With the 4" deep lid closed there is gentle pressure of the 2" foam to hold securely all the contained components.

    I'm using a Pelican Protector case. It's quite large so I have plenty of room to add new accessories :) it has 2 layers of foam so I keep some other parts and my GPS tracker charger down there. I feel pretty comfortable it will be well protected in it. I like that it has handles and wheels. It uses the "Pick N Pluck" foam so I can customize it exactly how I want it with ease.

    I spent a lot of time researching Phantom cases and backpacks and also following this thread to make sure I made the best choice. I ended up going with the all natural fiber and recyclable case for my Phantom 3 Pro. A great deal at your local U-Haul![​IMG]

    Here are a couple of pics on my case. Being a Star Wars fan (fanatic), I have a Jedi Order emblem to help identify my case, and scare off bad guys. This case holds everything very secure and has a soft foam piece that fits over the camera. This and the fact you can leave the props on during transport helped me choose this one. The other is the way the radio is placed in the case which doesn't put stress on the antennas. Being water proof is nice, but I'm more interested in keeping dust out of my aircraft. Having wheels is nice but loaded it's only about 20lbs. I could also use the Force to move it, if need be.
