Nice case, cool project. You'd need a case that is around 6" deep (3" top & 3" bottom). Flybarless would be easier. Get the foam from a local auto/marine upholstery shop. Would be looking for high density. Make sure the foam does not hold moisture which could cause issues with your electronics.

I made a similar setup by buying a case from a place that sells the aluminum cases is various sizes with blank foam inside that you cut to your specs.
I use a really small case (about a one-transmitter size) to carry my Nine Eagles Bravo Sx, transmitter, tools and 10 lipos.The case with foam cost around $29.
The company is common sense rc. They have a great selection of cases.

If there is a Harbor Freight anywhere nearby.. a popular case is the #69318 case http://www.harborfreight.com/18-x-12...ase-69318.html . It goes on sale pretty often, and can be picked up for $30 off sale. The foam comes pre-punched, making it easy to customize it to your equipment -- which is probably why it's such a popular case for chopper hobbyists. I have two..
