DIY 3RD quad carrycase out of wood and an old mattress

Hi all,

Just thought I'd post pics of my quad case. It took a while to build but the cost to build it was practically zero. I utilized an old beds plywood and the foam from its mattress.

I have been using it now for about 4 months and I really like it. It's just big enough to securely fit:

  • the quad with props off
  • transmitter
  • extra batteries
  • laptop
  • lipo charger
  • various powercords, GoPro stuff, extra props...

Dimensions are in cm: 55 x 55 x 24.5

Nice! That is pretty cool.

I've been thinking about doing something similar with my Hexa... mostly tho because I can't seem to find a pelican case big enough to get it into without having to dismantle bits of it...
