Hmm, I might consider this as a travel case if I ever buy another 27” monitor. It’s much cheaper than the Tenba cases which I’ve been using.
I think this is cool. Right? I dunno. I mean, look at this crazy bright green Pelican 1510 carry-on case. Typically you would see these in black or desert tan, but Pelican has a high-visibility series that includes this color as well as a ton of other nasty combinations.
I made this layout by myself! The Pelican 1450 fits underneath the airline seats so it's perfect as a carry-on (so long as you don't mind having minimal feet space). My Mavic Pro was bought as a combo along with 2 extra batteries and a whole mess of other accessories so I wanted a complete easy-to-configure option for making sure this whole setup was protected. This seems to fit the bill nicely.
So now that my Mavic Pro is on its way, I am trying to find a really study hard case for it when I'm throwing gear into the trunk of a car. Pelicans are my go-to and except for the whole weight issue, I really trust my gear in these Pelican cases. So naturally, I went straight to see if Pelican offered a custom case for the Mavic Pro.
The best quick solution I found so far is this one from AerialMediaPros.com which is a custom Pelican 1450 with pre-cut holes for the drone, batteries, and some other accessories. Perfect, except I didn't want to pay $200 for it.
Mike Mikkelson made his own with a Pelican 1400 case and Kaizen foam. I've never loved Pelican's Pick N Pluck foam and never knew that another company made more precise foam inserts for Pelican cases. This one seems like a much better fit if you want your gear hugged tightly. The Kaizen foam is completely customizable and seems like the best option for the price (altogether it comes out to about $100 and a little DIY time).
The third option I've looked into is My Case Builder which is a little more complicated but with the right dedication, you can seriously spec out some foam to be exactly right for your Mavic Pro. The site's not the easiest to use, just FYI.
Neat video on how the Pelican hard cases are made. I use these same cases for a lot of my photo gear and occasionally for my camping excursions as well.
