    I am going to Ecuador with the Inspire 1.
    I was wondering what would be my best option as per the carrying case:

    1. DJI Case: I will try to take it with me as a carry-on luggage. However, the case is larger than what most flight companies will allow. If they oblige me to check-in with the DJI Case, I don't think the Inspire will make it in one piece.

    2. GoProfessional: This looks more sturdy but I cannot take it with me as a carry-on. Is that robust enough to be checked-in?

    3. Pelican and other options?

    Peli Storm Case 2875 with an inbuilt pulling handle takes the entire Inspire 1 case perfectly. Totally suitable for an Aircraft hold and super strong.

    This one look interesting and may be perfect.....

    Peli case every time.
    Film/production crews around the world haven't trusted them for years without good reason.

    Thanks!

    This is a bit overwhelming but I think I am going to go for the standard case that I will place inside a peli case.
    Do you have to place some extra foam in the Peli Storm Case 2875 to make sure that there is no empty space left?
