Larger X5 mounting plate means that I can only fit 6 batteries in my Inspire 1 Pro case

    The larger mounting plate prevents me from inserting the battery closest to the nose of the aircraft. Is it just me?

    Got any photos of yours in the case? Did you buy the X5 and bracket?

    No, I bought an Inspire 1 Pro. It comes with the larger mounting bracket.

    Here you can see it; the edge of the mounting bracket encroaches on the upper-right corner of the battery slot. I could probably force the battery in, but I don't want to put any pressure on the bracket. I think the solution is to carve out some foam on the wall at the bottom of the photo.

    I just got my inspire 1 ProCraft case cost $329.00 at Amazon, it is a beauty but.....the oversized camera bracket in your picture was not taken in account on my expensive case. I spent 2 hours slowly carving the foam to fit the bracket. So much for plug and play. What a bummer!!!!!!!!

    That case is designed for the Inspire 1 V1, not the V2, the Pro, or a V1 with an X5 attached.
