If it's your first Phantom, then it shouldn't matter. As soon as the Vision is available, cases will be be too.

From what I can tell, it looks as if the box it comes in will work for a while. It looks like it fits in there with the landing gear on it.

Not sure if this might help, here's my (first) attempt at a case for my Vision based on the CPC Case.

Image

It is VERY tight for spacing on the props so for arduous transit I would probably remove the props seeing as they easily screw on and off and self tighten.

For the vision controller I've found you have to remove the holder for iPhone (or other handset) and the WIFI range extender. It's a 10 second job so not exactly a pain.
I've chosen to keep the battery charger and mains lead in there as well so it's all self contained.
Spare props were a last minute addition.

I have some more foam and a new hot wire cutter coming so my next edition might be a little different but this will do until then.

Yep, very tight.
What I did was balance small bits of paper on the ends of all 4 props so when I closed the case very S L O W L Y, I could see if the case lid knocked any off.
I then used some black 3 inch plastic cocktail sticks to 'pin' the props in a safe position by pushing them vertically into the foam.

Found this case at MCM Electronics: Duratool 22-17815 comes with foam inserts, internal size is 21.5 L x 13.75 W x 11 H. It has 1.9 inch more length for props and 3 inch more height than Duratool box being used for original Phantom. Price with 15% off coupon available on internet is $50.99 plus $13.49 UPS shipping. It does not have pressure relief valve but otherwise looks like Duratool 468 used for Phantom.

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!

Yeah...it comes with foam, but not PLUCKED foam. Got mine yesterday and the case itself is awesome. The "foam" is three discrete thick pieces. Gonna be a task to get it cut neatly to fit all the bits I want to put in it. Not exactly happy about that. :cry:

EDIT: OK, I'm an idiot. Upon closer inspection it >>IS<< plucked foam. It just wasn't immediately apparent because it is so finely cut.

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"

Looks like the main difference is the larger one is 3.5" taller (deeper). I bought the smaller one, seeing that it had lots of reviews from Phantom pilots - but those were apparently for original Phantom. My P2V *just barely* fits in the smaller one, but only if I remove the "egg crate" foam from the top, and replace it with a thin sheet of 1/4" foam instead. Taller would have been better!
