I bought the smaller Duratool case and opted to fit the Vision in the case with the props removed. A smaller case works better for me because of space considerations. Also I came across a coupon code that reduced the price of the case to $34.

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!!!

you could do this case. Its more than enough space. I like that it has the lower storage level. Not carry on friendly though.

Here it is in my Pelican 1560 case. I have the props at an angle. The transmitter is a bit tricky with the Wifi and iPhone holder dongle. I even have a space waiting for an extra battery or two. But 310 bucks for two is STEEP!


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.

I love that sign in the background. "Busted Knuckle Garage." When I was turning wrenches as an industrial tool setter we had a big adjustable crescent wrench we all called "Ol' Knuckle Buster." For good reason... :shock:
Okay... enough about the "XOXOXO" brand props, already...

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:

Duratool for Phantom 1: Approximate internal Dimensions (L x W x H): 19 1/2" x 13 1/2" x 8"

Duratool for Phantom 2? Approximate internal dimensions (L x W x H): 20 1/2" x 13" x 11 1/2"

http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/D ... -/22-17815


Anybody had any luck carrying the smaller one (External dimensions (L x W x H): 22 1/2 " x 16 1/2" x 8 1/2") on as a carry on item? Appears to be slightly larger than Delta's requirements 22" x 14" x 9"

Attached is a comparison I made of the cases mentioned on here as well as some others I found after spending too much time switching between tabs in my browser.

The prices include applicable promo codes (EMD359 for Duratool 25% off) and Shipping & Handling costs (the Pelican cases currently have free S&H). Dimensions are for the interior.

The Duratool case looks nice and is obviously the cheapest. However it is on back order for an estimated 42 days, and you lose several inches of interior width.

The Pelicans are available now, but quite more expensive.

The Pelican 1560 seems nice, but may be slightly too tight on the length.

The 7.87" depth/height on the 1600 might be just a little bit too short.

The Pelican 1610 seems to have great dimensions all around but now we're at the $200 price point, so at that point might as well pay a little more and go with the perfectly pre-cut HPRC case? But then, Khakis1999 would think you are an asshole.

Another interesting note is that Pelican offers free replacements forever if you break your case. They also have wheels and pull out handle. There is a HPRC model with wheels and a pull out handle but after S&H it's like $280.
