    What's are your recommended cases for the p3p 9450 props? I'm thinking of a hardcase not the stock sleeve that DJI inlcluded.

    If you're planning on buying a case for your Phantom, then you probably won't find a need for such a box since most cases have a dedicated storage area for props.

    My purchased p3p package came with a converted backpack inserted with some nice protective material inside. Right when I read your comment I figured out that I can just use the side pockets, and since it's already flat, it's a perfect place for prop protection. Thank you for your comment msinger!

    I got on this last week my lad bought a tube of mentos in the duty free and the tube is perfect, I guess a big smarties or jelly tot tube with a pop lid would do too the same

    Just wondering... which tube are you referring to exactly? I thought mentos was just pretty much the candy itself wrapped in basically tin foil... I haven't haf mentos in a bit though.

    Anyone in the USA seen Mentos in a container like this?

    When I searched for Mentos tube, I only found links for tubes to drop them into Diet Coke, like a depth charge.

    I have yet to see one, but other tubes that are sold with commercial products can do it to.

    Maybe a Pringles tube? I keep zip ties in them in my garage.

    not being smart but for the last 8 months I simply keep them on my phantom, always

    never been an issue.

    I do have a back pack case and have a spare set in pocket of it , no special treatment or case though

    My case doesn't allow for the props to be installed on the P3 and fit into the case.

    The blades are brittle and I suggest some type of protection, especially for the backup set that is not currently being flown.

    So far, the only blade I have broken was when the P3 slid out of my hand as I was placing it on the ground to launch. The P3 rolled slightly and the blade tip snapped.
