    The pack is shaped so that it sits in a valley, I will make sure to have the gimbal lock in place when carrying it. I plan on putting a Velcro strap on the gimbal lock to help keep it in place.

    Wow no hadn't see this, but don't like the way the did it. I don't want to have to take off the gimbal and am afraid the blades would get broke chipped etc just put in the way they do it. I was going to put some cardboard or plastic cutting board in it to protect the blades but the girlfriend came up with using a knife sleeve. Haven't found one yet though I like.


    I found this and was copying most of what he did.

    Ok here is how my bag is packed. I placed the charger and 12v plug in it to show that it fits great. Don't think I'm actually going to pack it though since I have 3 batteries, one is in the Q. As you can see the gimbal is surrounded in the little valley.

    Anyone have any experience with the Cabin Max Tallinn set-up? Seems to meet the overhead bin requirements...but I didn't think the drone would fit in the bag. Some say it will. Any pilots travel with the soft backpack? Photos?

    I had talked to someone at Yuneec and he mentioned to put the blades in the smaller side pockets, next to the Landing Gear pockets.
    I had not seen the PDF - thanks for posting that too.

    I tried that and didn't like it much, the center of the prop and the gear don't mesh well. The rear pocket is almost like a notebook sleeve, nicely padded. I put a piece of cardboard in there to stiffing it up a little. It's probably not needed though.

    I did finally get a chance to put the bag to good use. Loaded the bike in the SUV and went to the beach. I parked in standard parking where everyone else does. The beach at this location is always packed, not a great place to fly and I'm sure the life guards would complain. That and random kite flyers.

    So I road the bike about a mile down the road with the backpack the about 1/2 a mile further on the beach. Since there is not public parking the only people there are normally joggers or the occasional person who actually lives in their beautiful beach front home. It also put me out of the stupid city limits and their dumb ordinance that prohibits drones in city parks. They consider the life guarded beach a city park. The county has no such ordinances.

    The bag was perfect and I was able to play at the beach without anyone complaining.

    Ready to hit the road with my Q500 4K on the H-D Road King. Props and screwdriver on the outside. TX is packed in case from CarolinaDronz.com, ac battery charger packed in Go Pro case w/car charger. CGO3 is in a Lowepro Adventure SH 100 II which fits perfect from Best Buy for $20. Landing gear is inside with 3 batteries & prop wrench. Wind meter is in the little zipper on the outside. The charger case is in the back part horizontally with the 3 batteries sitting on top. The TX case sits in the front part vertically with the CG03 resting on top. The weight is only 11lbs. Now the big question is can I repack all this once I get out into the open where I want to photograph since I packed all of this in the kitchen hanging on a chair. LOL

    Ok I have a new dilemma in the case area. I have the Yuneec backpack, which I love but it has one issue. There is no way to protect the sticks on the ST10 when it's in the pack. This is fine for transporting as its well padded and I doubt they would become damaged. The problem lies when I want to put the ST10 in the bag and have the Q follow or watch me. Because there is nothing protecting the sticks they are able to move while in the bag which causes random control of the Q. Not a good thing. I would like a plastic cover or something that I can places over the sticks and secure it with Velcro. Any one know of such a thing?

    I have used some stiff but flexible foam/ plasticy substance (don't know what its called) and rolled it around the sticks. However I was careful enough that when taped up it actually sits inside the stick circle. Sitting in the circle holds it in place, even upside down. The height of the foam is just high than the sticks.

    If you taper the centre so that it slides over easy then it will adhere around the stick.

    Should add Yuneec's own backpack to this list. It's $65 directly from Yuneec. ImageUploadedByYuneec-Forum.com1456811837.547790.jpg

    That's what I was thinking. The dimensions look off though, i.e. the Home Depot case is 18.5" wide inside and this case says it's over 20". I guess for $55 shipped I could take the risk. I could always modify the foam to fit with the props on. Right now I have the Yuneec poly foam in the case with additional foam around it. I was thinking about swapping the regular foam with Kaizen foam instead. Starting to get expensive lol.
