    My tradecraft case arrived. I made a few adjustments to fit all my gear.

    - P2V+ & Transmitter
    - 4 Batteries
    - Spare props and assortment of spare parts
    - 8 AA's
    - Charge adapter & cables
    - Stage 1 FPVLR antenna's
    - Precision toolkit

    Looking forward to my trip out to Northern Ontario, so I can do some aerial photography of the beautiful landscape.

    Nice case for sure. I'm just not willing to pay $200 for such a case... ;)

    Nope and DEFINITELY over priced. I've spent $1500 on the bird's initial purchase price, *might* be upgrading my FPV device soon at a cost of approx. $400, so if I was to buy a case like yours that would bring my total expenditures on my bird to over $2000. Not at this time for me, but your case is very nice.

    very nice.

    Is it easy to trek with? Or is cumbersome like a 1970's suitcase?

    Looks like you've got it all covered.
    I too couldn't justify spending that much as i don't plan on traveling that much with mine. I just wanted something to store it in and transport in the car.
    I received one of these last week and works well enough for me. Sure beats using the original box and @ $79 with free delivery I can't complain. http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.vi ... AU&alt=web

    Your backpack is way more practical for local flights not to mention economical. Nice!

    Here is a great stainless PRE CUT Phantom case for the money and the one I have. No its not super heavy duty or rated for airlines buts its a great case to organize your phantom and ALL its gear. Tons of compartments and room for custom options and easy to cut in with an exacto knife. I do not store my props on the Phantom as I do not want to risk warping and by them not being on gives me the opportunity to inspect each one during my pre-flight. Once again its not a heavy duty case but it is a nice case and will protect your Phantom with plenty of room. I paid $99 with free freight. Delivered in two days and on a Saturday I might add. Just wanted to pass this along, its not a $200.00 case but most don't need and expensive case. Hope this helps someone. I will include the link to purchase if someone is interested. Not bad for $99.00 and free shipping! Hope this helps someone.

    What did you apply to it, to have that hard material in the cuts?

    There is no hard material inside the cutouts. Standard custom foam cutouts for PV2.
