I'm looking to acquire a new case that will allow me to keep the props and gimbal on while in gear-down mode. I'm estimating this will save quite a bit of time, not to mention avoiding the setup dance to get the camera on correctly (exit travel mode, no power), as well as not having to precariously enter travel mode on the OEM case after a flight. I'm looking at buying a Pelican 1730 and 'plucking' the foam to custom fit the Inspire 1 in this configuration. I'm not concerned with being able to transport it as a carry-on. Is there any reason the props and gimbal should not be attached during transport? Is there any reason not to transport in gear-down mode? I've given it some thought and can't think of any, nor does the manual mention anything about this, so I thought I would bounce the idea off you guys to make sure I'm not missing something.
