Pelican Phantom 4 case

The Pelican Phantom 4 case is here!!

Sometimes it’s really easy to get excited about something and this one of those times.

Pelican Phantom 4 case - iM2600 BlackFor years Pelican cases have been, and still are, the gold standard in camera cases. Made of high impact structural Copolymer Polypropylene, they are nearly indestructible, watertight, dust-proof and guaranteed for life. And those are just some of the reasons we’ve been using them for years already. 

So we were very excited to find  they’ve also released a case for the Phantom 4 (it also fits the Phantom 3 btw).

This new case has laser cut-outs to hold the Phantom 4, with a battery in it, plus 3 additional batteries. It also as a special slot for an iPad/Android tablet and of course one for the remote controller. Aside from that there is space for extra propellers (2 sets) as well as for cables. There is also enough space for our filters so we can take everything we need with us in this Pelican Phantom 4 case when we’re moving around.

One of the really cool things about the Pelican Phantom 4 case is the way the battery slots have been cut out. Although they have been cut for the Phantom 4 batteries they are also a perfect fit for Phantom 3 batteries. All you have to do is put them in sideways (see picture below). Great creative design by Pelican which makes this case perfect for both versions of the Phantom.Pelican case phantom 3/4 battery
Unlike the Kozaam backpack we didn’t even bother putting this Pelican case in the shower. Pelican cases have been protecting our cameras for years in all kind of conditions and there is no reason to think this Pelican Phantom 4 case will be any different.

The measurements make it suitable for carry on with most airlines (check here for individual airline size restrictions).

The casefoam-support-cam has a soft foam insert that supports the camera so you don’t have to worry about it bouncing around. It also has special cut-outs for the propellers at the top so you can transport your Phantom 4 (or Phantom 3) ready-to-fly.
