    I used the popular Husky case for my Q500 and made some changes. The styrofoam was originally used, but I later decided to use foam. Spring loaded recessed handles were added to both ends. The Husky accessory tray lifts out to access the receiver storage.

    Here are some pics:

    Thanks, it 150 euros instead of 54 dollars. Very big difference!

    Wow, nice job on this case. I thought the original white, semi-hard foam wouldn't last too long before it began to crumble.

    I know it's awhile later, but I just got a Q500 4K and I'm want to build a case like this.

    Could you post what all size foam you bought and a diagram or something of how you picked the foam out and what not? If like to recreat what you have.

    Thanks!

    Quick question for the OP here : How did you cover the husky logo? I have thought about blocking off the area then painting it to prep for the vinyl I want to put on....Also working on a similar project...incorporating pick'n'pluck foam and the rubber clamps found on a youtube video. Ill post pics in another post once the project gets further along.
