Our favorite cases for the DJI Phantom 3
Now it’s time to get to the meat of the article: the cases! Each of these cases has their perks and we’ll expound upon them so that you have a better idea of what is out there for protecting your Phantom 4 investment. Without further ado, let’s get started!
Case Club Waterproof Wheeled Case
If you want a great case that is airline approved, this Case Club case is an excellent choice. Designed to fit ALL of the DJI Phantom 3 models from standard to advanced, this waterproof case has a military grade polyethylene exterior that looks good and is easy to clean. Inside, there is a cushy foam interior with cutouts to ensure that your Phantom 3 and it’s accessories fit snugly and it also comes with reusable silica gel to help keep everything dry as can be inside. When the silica becomes fully saturated it can be heated for re-use and while it’s a little gimmicky we liked this touch. Aside from your Drone basics, you also have room for a tablet in this case, 5 batteries, extra propellers, and more thanks to the foam cutouts and a long pocket next to where the drone will be nestled. Take a closer look and see what you think!
Power Extra Waterproof Case
If you don’t have a lot of accessories and just want a little style and protection for carrying your Phantom 3 then this Power Extra case is worth considering. This waterproof case is lightweight, weighing in at only 2.5 pounds, and you can wear it like a backpack. It is not a hard shell case, so you don’t have as much impact protection but the EVA foam interior is there and ready to soften lesser impacts should they occur. The foam inset has cutouts for adding your drone, transmitter, charger, 3 batteries, and an Ipad or similarly sized tablet if you like. If you don’t mind trading some of that extra protection for comfort and just need some casual conveyance for your Phantom 3 then the Power Extra might be a good fit for you.
Koozam Phantom 4 Pro Case
Now, you can’t have a list of ‘best of’ cases without throwing in a little spy style. If you want to carry your Phantom 3 in a case that is both durable and really gets some attention then consider this Koozam case. First we should clear up one thing, although it says Phantom 4 in the title, this case fits all of the Phantom 3 models as well as the Phantom Vision and Phantom 4. Now, what do you get for your
“The exterior of this case is durable aluminum with a matte-black finish”
purchase? The exterior of this case is durable aluminum with a matte-black finish that makes you feel like a spy on a rendezvous or a CEO on the way to the office. Aside from looking sharp, this is airline-approved size and easily stowed in an overhead compartment if you want to take your Phantom 3 on the plane with you, and the waved phone interior coupled with the custom cutouts for your drone and it’s accessories mean that even if the case gets bumped around a bit your drone is safe and secure. This one is definitely worth a closer look.
MC Professional carrying case for DJI Phantom 3
The last entry is our favorite entry, for the protection and style that it offers and also for one little nice feature that you don’t see a lot. You can store your Phantom 3 in this with the propellers on! A common scenario with most cases is that you have to remove them and while that’s a good practice its fun to get to skip that step and know that your drone is still protected anyways. With this case you can simply open it up and your drone is ready to go! That’s not all it has to offer, though. The exterior of this case is a hard plastic scratch-resistant shell with 4 latches for closing it securely, while inside there is laser-cut foam that is custom fit for your Phantom 3. It’s a little heavier than other cases but for the look, protection, and getting to leave the propellers on… well, we declare that it is very much worth it.
Some final words
In this article we have discussed some of the best case options available for your DJI Phantom 3 drone.

Take a peek for yourself for further details and we hope that you get a lot of enjoyment from whatever case you do end up selecting. These drones are expensive so don’t settle for any old backpack, protect your investment!
