Ha I have the same case! What made you get orange? For me it was a default. Im a fireman and our EMS division used to use these. Now they just collect dust because we switched to soft bags. It fit really well and the top has clear pockets for all kings of small part storage. The bottom is padded with sections but I think Im going to get the pull and pluck like yours. Looks sharp.

It is so easy to put the props on and take them off that I decided they would be safer from accidental damage if they were off. I figured out where the motor shafts would hit the egg crate and cut out a small bit of the egg crate to keep it away from the motors. Then I came across some old saved small plastic medicine cups that came with some Walmart cough syrup and stuck them in the cutouts.
Now when I close the case the cups come down over the motors and protect them from any dust particles that might be in the foam. And no downward pressure on the motors!
Works out Great for me!!!
Edited to add picture of my $34 Duratool setup.
(Sensitive about foam dust from the cutting getting in the motors, thus the baggies)

Wait, sot he larger one is the same size? Looking at the dimensions, it says the INTERNAL length is 1" longer than the typical Duratool everyone used for the Phantom 1. Here are the two:
