So many videos online complaining about the bag that comes with the fly more combo, it's actually mind boggling.
Look guys, for those that think that this bag is supposed to fit all the gear that comes with the fly more combo, and spend hours on end trying to comfortably make it all fit, finding you can't and then filling up YouTube with videos complaining that it can't, hear this.

This bag is a nice added extra that comes with the combo, a bag that's as small as it can possibly be, a bag that specifically designed so you can add into it, all that you need for a days flying. You can fit the drone, controller and three batteries comfortably, and some spare props to boot. It's a bag you take on a hike, a place where you do not need a charger, that's right, this bag has not got a specific place to add the charger, sure you can fit it if you try, but it's not a bag designed for this purpose.

The bag, for what it is designed to do, is indeed fit for purpose, and imo, it's does it's specific job better than most.

It just simply amazes me how people's minds think, "but it's the fly more combo bag, it has to fit in everything"
No it's a bag that comes "with" the flymore combo, that's it. A handy travel bag.  And it does it's job perfectly.

This is what happens you you try to fit and ideology into and framework that's not suited, instead look at the framework for what it actually is.

The bag is nicely designed, seems like nice materials, looks good, has pockets in all the right places.  My main gripe with it is that it's too snug, even just for the Mavic + controller.

It's really hard to get the Mavic in and out of it (the propeller stubs and the front "legs" keep catching on the lining of the bag).  And once the Mavic's in place, it's hard to wedge the controller down in there-- yes, it fits, barely, but it's seriously wedged, to the point that I'm worried that I may be damaging the control sticks (they're jammed over to one side).

Every time I want to get the Mavic + controller in or out of the bag, it takes about a minute of fussing and fidgeting and pulling and pushing and tweaking and worrying that I'm going to damage something.

If they could have just made the bag about 10% larger, it would have been so much easier.

Just sayin'.

5 months with this bag. I use it all the time. After a youtube video, on how to pack it. It's almost perfect. Yah, maybe 5% bigger. but it did stretch,  out some. Just wish it had a extra storage in the back side, for extra cables. Also, it should have come with the joystick stable thing, instead of buying it separate. It is a must have for the controller!

Bag works for me.  I can find the mavic, controller, 3 USB cables, spare SD cards, filters, spare props and 2 spare batteries in it.  In other words, everything i need to operate in a small package.
The only thing ive done lately is cut out the divider in the middle of the compartment as i found it held the remote joysticks off centre as it was a tight fit.

The whole thing is small enough to fit inside my normal daybag to carry round without needing to be separate.

When you say, Joystick Stable thing..
do you mean the 3d printed object that covers the joysticks and keeps them from getting damaged?

I believe so. It is advisable to attach the joystick protection thing because you don't want your joystick to be continuously pressed or pushed to one side when you put it in the tight space.

To protect the RC sticks, I cut the cardboard shape in the original packaging where the RC was stored. It protects nicely the screen and the sticks.

Everything in the fly more combo fits into the bag with no problem, I even bought a forth battery, and it fits also. There are plenty of YouTube videos of how to pack it. I really like the small compact bag,  with everything in it for a weekend of drone flying.

Think the inside padding is a pain when it catches on the Mavics legs. Zip has rusted already after 2 months. Its ok, but not worth the advertised £75! Purchased two clamshell cases for the Mav and Controller. Much quicker to get in and out of.

So did I, works perfect.

I bought a pouch for the MP on Amazon, costs $7.00. It's lined inside but large enough to easily slide the MP in. The outside is somewhat slippery so when you put the pouch into the Flymore bag, it slides in and out with ease!

I can fit everything into the bag comfortably (well the drone with a batter, and 2 more battries, not 3). Can you show us a pic of how you are packing? I dont see what the problem is.

I use it for Apple TV, 120VAC inverter and all the cables to cast my video to a LCD TV. Works perfect for that.
