    I've noticed two versions of carrying cases for DJI Mavic from Banggood.
    First one designed as a backpack and the second as a suitcase.

    Looks like a reasnobale low-cost solution for storing and carrying the new DJI Mavic.

    If you're not a frequent hiker I'll guess the suitcase is a better option.

    FYI, the waterproof hard shell case is also now in stock (ships from CN website). I ordered one today and will share impressions once it arrives (I expect it'll be a week or two).

    I ordered a backpack on Amazon just like this and it should be arriving today. I hope it's designed and built well. I'll post my impressions once it gets here...

    (Updated with different pic insertion method)

    Well, here's the one I got.

    20161202_190318.jpg

    First impressions are pretty positive, but it's not totally perfect. I'm not exactly sure how waterproof it is (LOL), but it certainly seems water resistant. The cutouts are pretty good, but the top part of the case (opposite the foam side) doesn't really offer much protection or cushioning for the contents. Also, this seems to let the controller slide out of the cutout a bit in transit.

    There's room on that side (and a little zippered pocket) for adding some small, flat items, but I'd be afraid to add too much there or risk damaging some of the items that jut out of the foam cutouts.

    The zippers seem pretty decent, but they're almost too tight and the little rubber pulls on them seem like they'll break after a short time of use. That'll make it really difficult to open then...

    The backpack straps are a little too close together to me, and when wearing it, it seems like it kinda wants to jut out away from your back a bit. It's not super comfortable, but the reality is that it's pretty light, so it's likely no big deal.

    It's a little bit larger than I thought it'd be honestly. I mean, it's no monstrosity, but it's certainly bigger than the the DJI man purse.

    At the end of the day, is it worth the $63 I paid for it? I think the answer is yes. it looks nice, it's lightweight and functional, and it seems to offer a fairly decent middle ground between portability and protection for the price. I'd give it 3.5 outta 5 stars personally.

    OK... I updated my post with a different photo insertion method. Hopefully they're visible now.

    in my experience hard case draw too much attention when carrying around. I like the customization and expandability of a camera bag

    You mean attention like when I don this when I fly?

    20161205_112810.jpg

    Serves several purposes for me... Looks like I'm doing something important (LOL) and if I get disoriented (not likely) it makes easier to spot myself to get the bird pointed in the right direction on a manual return to home.
