Interesting point about the landing gear not being supported - I had never considered that.Be careful. Most of the cases are NOT cut to cradle the airframe body so the H sits on the landing gear. The landing gear are not really built to support the body during transport. Check out the insert your H came with. The landing gear does not touch the bottom.
But that is a nice looking case.
The weight isn't an issue for me. I just need something that can take a fair bit of 'rough and tumble' as I live in a very remote part of our country and even driving on the tracks up here can damage gear if it isn't packed properly. I've been using the original box and this is working okay, but it certainly isn't a long-term solution.8.8 pounds empty? Holy camoly!!! Better hit the gym while you are waiting for it to arrive.
I'm using a soft backpack that uses the Yuneec foam insert. Got it on Amazon for $44 sold by BODAJING but is currently unavailable. That's too bad because it works fine for me. I've emailed the supplier to find out when more will be available. I'll let you all know when I find out.
