I've been looking into backpacks for airline travel, and id prefer a backpack over a hardcase because I know it can't get lost through checking baggage, and Im just more comfortable knowing it's with me. What is a backpack that wont cost an arm or leg and that could fit under the seat in front of me on an airplane? Thanks.

I have a gopro case and I have taken it with me as a carry on.  I do not think a phantom would survive going through checked baggage as the baggage handlers make it a point to mishandle our luggage.

I got this one, works well considering how huge the bird is.

I have the same bag, very pleased with it. But you need to be fit to carry it fully loaded with extra batteries and iPad etc......Must be 15-20 kilos.

Hi PinaColada,
I am using a Dakine Sequence 33L, you can see pics on this thread( http://forum.dji.com/thread-14974-1-1.html ). It is super convenient, however it is not fitting under a seat but in the overhead compartment. I have been walking long distances and also skiing with it and it is perfect. let me know if you need more pics.
cheers
Nicolas

Another vote for the D1. We did a review of it here if you're interested.

Just not sure if it would fit under the seat in front of you. It's quite big.

i would even tend to say that NO bags designed to carry a P3 would fit below the seat. Overhead is the best.

I don't think any P3/P4 backpack will fit under the seat. Of the 5 or 6 bags I tested for product development, none of them would fit under the seat.

The one we came out with is pretty sweet:
PolarPro DJI Phantom 4 Drone Trekker

Good luck finding a pack!
Jeff
