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?
