    are their any cases than can accommodate the phantom 2 and gimble without having to take off the gimble and ground station, etc...

    Maybe it isn't a good idea to leave them on? Anyone have experience?

    Thanks,
    Thad

    What's up man! I am a cinematographer based out of the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area. I am opening an online store within the next couple weeks or so, I will be selling these awesome backpacks that fit everything you need with the phantom 2/vision including gimbal/batteries/fpv screen, ETC.. They are $149 (way cheaper than 99.9% of the ridiculous prices I've seen for these bags). And incase you're wondering, yes they are waterproof :D Send me a PM if interested

    ****, that's pretty sweet. I may be interested. Shoot me an email once you get up and running - tbwester at gmail (dot) com.

    Will I need to remove the gimble to put it in the bag?

    I'm using vanguard uprise backpack to carry my P2. I am able to place my ultrabook, p2 with gimball and gopro mounted, 2 spare batteries, RC, 7" monitor, p2 battery charger, 7"monitor charger, extra props, prop guards, my canon 70d, 18-135 lens, 50-250 lens

    my 2 cents is its better to travel with a backpack instead of suitcase like hard case.

    You can leave the gimbal on as there is a void in the area where it fits in the case.

    You may want to invest in a little plastic clip to hold the gimabl steady and stop it flopping around in transit.

    Here are photos of my backpack case that cost $95 plus shipping.
    [*]FIELDLINE TACTICAL ALPHA OPS DIGITAL INTERNAL FRAME HYDRATION BACK PACK - Ebay for $59.99
    [*]Fastcap 1-1/8 Thick Kaizen Foam, 2' x 4' $13.69
    [*]2-1/4 Thick Kaizen Foam, 2 ft x 4 ft Sheet $20.99
    I used a knife and hot screw driver for the cutouts. The screw driver was heated up with a blow torch (you could use an iron or stove), and was used to smooth the edges and create holes for the antennas. The case also holds my FPV monitor and chargers. Remaining external pockets can be used for anything. It also came with a hydration reservoir. I slip the props along the side of the foam. I took out the stays (stiffener) since they are not needed and I used the excess foam created a lumbar pad.
