    Anyone know of a good case for the Osmo + Inspire X3? The standard DJI one looks perfect but supposedly won't fit with the Inspire X3.

    Looking for something low profile I can throw in a pack - ie not a Pelican/hard case.

    Not true, the DJI case works great with the X3 Camera. I assure you it will fit perfectly! If I can help just let me know.

    Do you have any pictures? The DJI website specifically says it won't work.

    Are you talking about the x5 camera, it does not fit in the case?

    "The Storage Case is desinged for the Osmo only. It does not fit the Zenmuse X3 camera that comes with Inspire 1."

    Buy Osmo Storage Case | DJI Store

    I sell them every day with the x3 camera inside the case. I promise it fits.

    That looks like the Osmo X3 not the Inspire X3?

    I'm not sure why it says that. I have sold many Osmo with the x3 camera attached inside the case.

    I can only go by my own experience. I have an Osmo that I use the DJI Inspire x3 with and It fits for me. I will investigate this. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

    The I1 X3's roll axis does not fold flat and as such does not fit correctly. You can kinda close the case when placing it as per the image below, but forcing more than I'd want and any effort applied on the case would force on the cam's mechanism potentially damaging it. I wouldn't recommend it.

    Whoa, I never knew that. That's really too bad. For a quick stash and run in your pack, that would have been a nice piece to have.

    I'm using a Pelican 1400 since I want to pack a few batts, charger and accessories.

    I use my DJI case every day and it works great. I have had luck with it. I like the pelican 1400 as well. Pelican makes great cases.

    Right, I think the point Kilrah is making is that your X3 is an OSMO X3 which rotates flat to fit nicely. The Inspire X3 (white camera) does not rotate far enough to lay flat in that soft sided case. Pelican case is great, but it is a "case" not a bag so it means another thing to carry as opposed to chucking in a backpack. Don't forget to pack a few batteries either way!

    Agreed Kilrah is correct in that it does not lay flat but I personally don't think it's putting any pressure on mine that would harm it. I would like to see a more versatile DJI Osmo case that is open to all the Osmo configurations. Great tool for handheld video.

    You have to remove the x3 from the Osmo in order to get it to fit. Not perfect by any means. We need a case from DJI that property fits the x3.

    So a few things you'll find on the forum about packing your OSMO. The stock case is not that sturdy so I'd be hesitant to stuff in in a backpack and run. $600 buck camera deserves better, plus where do you keep batteries, chargers etc?

    If you have your Inspire going on the trip, heres what another operator does OSMO in Stock Inspire Case

    When I travel, I want more than just the OSMO by itself. I want my light kit, Rhode mic set-up, extra batts and chargers and a stand. I went the Pelican route and everything fits like a glove. If you plan on using the camera off your bird, you'll want to securely support the camera/Gimbal because it doesn't have a locking mechanism.

    Another nice add-on to your inspire for ground supported shots... I carry 6 ft lengths of carbon tubing that connect to make simple jibs. Great solution to shooting indoors in tight spots without risking the bird.
