    Hello guys,

    I have found this case on ebay which is weatherproof and can stand underwater for 30 minutes. It says its $200 regular, but they are around $150-$180 online. Anyways, this guy is selling the case for $89 with free shipping, I mean the case looks really durable and the reviews were all good. The brand is Monoprice, I am not familiar with the case brands but I've never heard of it before. Here's the link. I think it is a good deal.

    Good looking case. Any one had any experience with cutting the foam to fit? Would be good to be able to customise the layout of your case.

    the foam is pre sliced into smaller cubes to make it easier to customize

    You are definitely right. I bought it because it was a good deal and I thought when it started to get loose I can replace just the foam for first 2 layers for around $10. I still think it is a good deal man the rolling phantom cases were around $250 just because it says it fits to Phantom. But it may not be, as I said I am new to this. What do you think?
    A lot of people are going to need cases for their new P3 thats why I posted

    As long as you know you may have to replace foam then it's no big deal. I have a Pelican 1510 that I just setup for my P2V+ that I returned so I ordered new foam that's not pick and pluck it was very reasonably priced. Yours is a good deal for the price my 1510 was about $140.

    I don't think it is tall enough to fit the P3. Internal dimensions 20.51" x 10.94" x 7.48". It also looks like it has depressions for the wheels and possibly for the retractable handle making the 7.48" even shorter. Please let us know when you get it if it will fit as it seems to be a good alterative P3 case.

    I keep my P2V in a Duratool 22-14355 which is 8" high internal and it barely fits. With the P3 even taller, I expect to need a new case. It is interesting that the case discussed here has a big difference between external (9.76") and internal (7.48") height. (With my Duratool case it was 8.5" and 8"). Maybe the difference is the space taken by the handle.

    Very cool. The wheels and handle are nice added touches.
