DF carrying case

Here is the case atomic is selling, $150 och!. Is there anyway to order the Joysway one in the US or do you think Atomic would do a group order for us. Anyone interested in a case.

Those are really high-end travel cases and on the pricey side. Atomik says they are Specking out a case similar to the ones I have for the DJI phantom which should be competitively priced according to them.

It will have custom cut foam and other features that will make it really nice

They have lots of manufacturing contacts in China and it should be done within the next 30 to 60 days

Wow! To get anything out of China that fast would be amazing. Once these items are made then they have to ship them here, which is with all the customs issues plus the time it takes to get here from there, it is likely to be May or June before they'd be in the U.S.

I worked for a company that had a lot of industrial items made in China before I retired. I guess things can change.

They are already importing these cases, and just need to change some of the dimensions, but yeah Boomer, I'm just reporting what they told me

Probably something similar in specs and price to this:

Another great case for the DF is a Double Bow case like this:
http://www.gandermountain.com/modper...-Case&i=445072

It has room for sails in the top, with the radio and the boat with rudder installed and keel removed in the bottom.

I have pics of it somewhere.

The other awesome case for the DF, but no room for sail is a 450 class EXI heli case - http://www.hobbypartz.com/exialhecacap.html
