So there I was...navigating a tricky uphill climb with my Phantom in one hand and using my other hand to stabilize my ascent up the treacherous terrain. I knew this was NOT the way to transport my new Phantom around.
This case is gorgeous. It is clearly high quality, the hinges are all solid. The handle is thick and solid. The locking mechanisms are solid and tight. So solid! Speaking of security, there are two slots for your own padlock to secure the case. As solid as can be without a set of bolt cutters around.
For those people who are complaining how HEAVY it is, I fear for the future. It is exactly the weight of what you would expect from a hard plastic case of that size. The constant whining from other people's reviews made me think it had some undercoated lead exterior or something to make it heavier than what it should be. It is exactly what one would estimate a case to be, nothing heavier. L2getfit.
The pictures speak for themselves. Look at all the slots. Look at them! Look at the prop chocks. Slots for batteries! Slots for GoPro nonsense! Slots for Fatshark Goggles! Everything you need. I contemplated buying the cheaper case on Amazon for $130 but the lack of compartments convinced me to spend the extra money for this one.
So back to my hiking scenario...I will need to buy a LARGE backpack to slide this in if I wish to keep both hands free to climb up rocks to get to my launching point vistas. Large as in full-framed camping backpack. I will do exactly that.

This is a nice case, fits the stock Phantom well, the control unit was not cut exactly right for the switches and I had to remove some foam which was already pre-cut for it to be removed. Room for 6 LiPo batteries plus one in the Phantom. Room for extra motors below the area where the motors on the Phantom sit although the cutout is so tight, you almost have to remove all wrapping on any spare motors and then you'd get "stuff" inside the motors. You have to be careful with the foam to a degree as it can break off or break apart with little pressure. It's not too heavy and very protective of the Phantom. I wouldn't try it but I'd feel confident dropping the case from 6 feet without any damage to anything. I put some tools inside it in case I have to disassemble the Phantom including 2mm hex screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver size 1 and size 00, nut driver for propellers (one that comes with Phantom is not good), sandpaper to smooth out propellers, extra AA batteries and of course LiPo batteries. I'd buy this again if I could do it over.

"This is a "must have" item for your Phantom. The molded case is not the same build as Pelican, however it is very good and will last a lifetime. The interior foam is definitely the best there is. Anyone stating otherwise is a hacker.
The case interior is perfectly laid out with high-quality customizable cutouts. Allows stowage and travel with the FPV/OSD the Spironet antenna mounted all on a carbon fiber rear mounted plate. ARRIS gimbal, Hero3 remains completely assembled and fits perfectly. That is awesome!!!
With the fully assembled Drone in the case you also have room for 8 batteries, 2 headsets, controller, spare props, tools, 2 extra Hero3 batts with charger. And theres still plenty of room for more things.
Conclusion: The ability to carry a single case with your complete aerial kit is indispensable for pros. You basically pull your Phantom out, add battery, power up and fly. Highly recommended!

I bought this case because it would fit my fatshark goggles and unlike the picture it fits 6 batteries or more if you make room for them. It holds everything very nice and built strong and everything fits nice and snug. I'm very glad I bought mine as it makes going to the flying field a much better experience. If you can afford it just buy it. Well worth the money.

Easy to Modify!
I purchased this case for my DJI Phantom 2 Vision. I was very hesitant to purchase this item because it wasn't made specifically for the #2. I did have to make two small modifications, but they were very easy and the case is definitely the better than anything else I would have come up with. It is the right case for the Vision
The propellers are longer on the #2 and have to be removed when carrying in this case. But, that is as easy as unscrewing them (Extremely easy) and to be 100%, only one of the props HAS to be removed, the others will fit. I just prefer to remove all of them because it is so easy. I would probably remove them even if they fit, just so there wasn't pressure applied to the prop.
The controller is larger on the #2 also because of the FPV Phone holder, and is too large to fit into the provided space while fully assembled.
What I did was use a carving knife from the block in the kitchen. The serrated edge made it simple to carve the foam. I eliminated the right corner of the foam molding, cutting right through the center of the pre-cut circle on the right upper corner, by the remote housing. This allowed all of the room I needed for the controller to remain fully assembled all of the time, and it made room for the props to rest after removal. The props now sit under motor number four in the case. I also enlarged the space set aside for the phantom 1 spare props, to fit the #2 spares.
It took me less than a minute to modify this case.
The structural integrity was not compromised one bit and I am completely happy with the outcome.
Even if go pro releases a new case for the #2, I won't need to consider it because this works beautifully.

First to clarify, this is for a CASE. Thats what you are buying. I was given this as a gift for some very expensive test equipment. Its a great case, very strong, very secure, locks, but--the foam is cutout very precisely and perfectly for a quadcopter. Obviously I cant let a good case go to waste so I bought one. Not only is there room for the copter, batteries, remote, extra little attachments like extra props etc, (or rotors) but the case holds this very securely with props on. I didnt have a gopro I have a competing brand and it works (the case) very well for it too. Yes its expensive. You might say "this much for a case?" but go back and price all the parts and pieces for your drone, the cameras, the gimbel, then tell me you want to put it in a tackle box or backpack. ALl of a sudden the price of the case becomes very reasonable. It will last forever, its worth it. The cutouts are done with a cnc water saw. This cuts with absolute precision using a stream of high pressure water. There is no heat, no blade marks, no residue, just a perfectly smooth and precise cutout.

This case is great. Sturdy, ip67 rating, metal reinforced locking points, good hinges, and good carrying handle. Yes it's big, sure it's kinda heavy, but it provides enough protection to keep me happy. I have a dji phantom 3 phantom batteries, hobby king brushless gimbal, regular controller, fpv transmitter, reciever, a bunch of cables both for charging and for wiring the fpv reciever to a TFT screen connected to a 4th 1000mah lipo, and a lipo guard, with a gopro, gopro accessories, and lcd touchscreen with 3 sd cards, and it all fits perfectly. I ended up modifying the foam a little bit to be able to fit as cards which was easy enough with a serrated knife. I love this case and am more than happy with it. If you're going to invest 1000 + in your phantom and accessories, invest in this case, it's not cheap, but it will save your phantom from damage while transporting or storing.

this case is like a pelican case that I use in diving. hard shell that won't crack if dropped. good case for phantom or if you upgrade (that way you don't buy a new one). Only issue is if you put propeller guards, this case won't work and so u have to take the propeller guards to fit your quads. the drone is not a big device but its landing stand makes it bulky. if you take it out along with its propellers, you'll have a drone thats about 3 inches in thickness enough to fit in your luggage bag when you travel. that being said, if you travel, this case alone would be considered 1 luggage due to its size and this wont fit as hand carry (there goes your free luggage). That is is the only negative thing i see on this product.

I must admit I was skeptical when I saw the price. It is pretty expensive for just a case. So if you want one of the best you will need to pay for it. The overall case is just perfect for my needs. It hold my DJI Phantom, GoPro 3 , Fat Shark goggles and all the battery's and connectors you can imagine. It is worth the investment and this is coming from a skeptic who does not spend this kind of money on a case. If you spend the money to get the DJI Phantom, Fat Shark Goggles and the GoPro camera this is the case to keep everything safe and organized.
