    Not the best quality (already showing signs of wear) but I traveled with it hand luggage from NZ to Palau and on to Yap last month - was the only luggage I took.

    Had the following in it;
    - P2V+ (ver 3)
    - Controller
    - 5 x Batteries
    - Wall charger
    - iPad Sunshield
    - iPad Mini
    - 8 props
    - 1TB external HDD
    - Macbook Air + charger
    - iPad Mini
    - GoPro H4 Bk + 'selfie' stick
    - Accessories - SD cards, gopro batteries, card reader, gopro mounts, wall chargers, battery backup pack, power outlet adapters and some other odds and ends.

    Padded it all with some clean clothes - okay - dirty on the way home - don't need much on a dive trip.

    Have also taken it 'hiking' in the hills but since the back is very flat you get very sweaty

    Be aware that my Phantom 2V+ v3 didn't fit properly in this one. The only thing I can think of is that the V3 motors are perhaps half an inch (1.5cm) higher than the V2.

    Pictured is my actual backpack... I'm still using it till this day.
    What can I say... for around 80AUD, its perfect. I cant fault it. I used it with the H33d + gopro + black pearl combo also.
    Fits in the overhead compartments for carry on.
    Has quick access compartments.
    Has support straps for bushwalking and a raincoat.
    You can add the prop guards with the external straps

    On a side note..
    I tried the square ebay ones with the foam - its poor quality. The straps break easily. You need to reinforce it.

    Just brought the Fearless Engage backpack, Amazon $149.99. Fits everything and then some.
    It's worth checking out. Not exactly sure of the carry on specs, but from what I've seen the knukleheads carry on, should not be a problem.

    Not sure if my backpack is suitable to carry on a plane as hand luggage but it is about the smallest you can get and it's very well made and holds everything secure, purchased in the uk.

    Just took a look at it. Pretty slick! Looks like it has plenty of room, and is well thought-out.

    My $.02.
