Our first entry is a great option for a frequent traveler who wants to carry around their drone in style. The HD Stars protective case is made out of shiny, durable aluminum, reinforced with stainless steel corners. It’s strong and not only will it fit a Phantom 4, but any of the DJI Phantom models. The roomy interior of this sleek case is foam with cut-outs designed for holding your Drone and accessories securely and get this… you don’t have to remove the propellers from your drone during transport! It seems like a little thing if you haven’t owned your Phantom 3 for very long but those who have, you know what we’re talking about. Most cases require that you remove the propellers but with a case like this HD Stars model you can pop it open and get straight to flying. The aluminum and stainless steel exterior makes it water resistant and consequently, this doubles as an outstanding launch and landing pad when it is not housing your drone. At 9.6 pounds it is a bit on the heavy side but that’s the price you pay for armor with style!
B & W Case for Phantom 4
Our second entry is a monster when it comes to protection and style. The B & W case is made of injected molded polyethylene, for one thing, making it extremely strong and durable. You could probably go after it with a baseball bat (but we don’t recommend that, of course). That’s not all, however. This case is designed to withstand a wide temperature range, from -30 to 80 degrees Celdius, which is something that you don’t see every day in a protective case. It is completely waterproof and even includes a pressurized valve, designed to take in air but not water, and aside from protecting your Phantom from flooding it also ensures that pressure issues from taking your drone on an airplane are no longer a worry. It has 4 latches and a single, round ‘snap lock’ that allows you to unlock and unlatch it, and there are two eyelets available for padlocks if you decide that you want to do that extra mile. There is even a name tag on the front if you want to assert your ownership. Lastly, the foam interior is roomy, it will hold your drone and accessories and you don’t even have to take the propellers off of your Phantom 4. All in all, this is probably the strongest case on the list.

This HPRC case balances the line between protection and lightweight conveyance. With a durable, impact-resistant plastic exterior and polyethylene precision water-cut foam on the inside you have both shock protection and the means to keep your drone and accessories from bouncing around during the rigors of transport. Like our previous listings, you don’t have take the propellers off of your Phantom 4 and it’s roomy enough to bring your drone, controller, batteries, and even a 10” tablet along with a handful of other small accessories. It is water and UV resistant and ergonomically designed, with all of the weight falling towards the bottom portion of the case so that you can take advantage of the wheels when you are traversing a smooth, compatible surface and feel like letting it roll instead of lugging it around. If you want protection that is a little on the lighter side when it comes to carrying your drone then this might be a good fit for you!
