    Hi,
    I was wondering if the community would like to share their pics of custom/modded carriers for P3's? Those who have modified large camera bags or the like. It might give some of us the inspiration to make something similar and save some cash for extra batteries :)

    Thanks
    Phil.

    That subject interests me as well. I am still using the cardboard crate the Phantom 3 came shipped in.
    Though am expecting four intelligent batteries to arrive on Monday. Still not sure where they will fit. But will perhaps worry about that, when the time comes. There are so many awesome back packs, great secure cases and the like. The choices are nearly endless, and more continue to be released. Surely I will find one before too long. ;-)
    Show us some of your ingenuity folks...

    Just posted this in another thread, so here it is. $70 and an hour of my time.

    I use a SOG Internal Frame Pack which cost me $44.97 from Walmart:

    Evidently they're pretty hard to find nowadays. Then I bought $24.99 worth of foam off Amazon:

    I watched this video to learn how to do it:



    Here is what mine looks like:


    It fits everything. All my batteries, my chargers, my FPV goggles, 3 sets of props, etc.

    I don't like the idea of removing the props all the time..gotta lead to trouble eventually

    Just don't over tighten them blades, when applying... And they will be fine.
    No need to white knuckle them into place.
    The wrench is a tool to remove them blades from their being horsed on.
