Can anyone recommend a good carry on bag for my standard. Definitely needs to meet the airline carry on size requirements

Pretty certain, the DJI hardshell backpack is appropriately sized for the overhead compartments of most major airlines.
You would need to contact the actual airlines and ask about your particular plane. All planes are not equal. ;-)

I bought this one for a trip to the Cayman Islands.  Very comfortable and room for extra's.

Ive traveled with the hardshell before and i had zero issues with it. Fits right in the overhead compartments better than half of the other passengers carry-ons.

I would be more worried about airlines seeing the LiPo battery or two in the bag than the bags size !! I know airlines that would not let you carry such size of LiPo's ......

the batteries aren't usually a problem. Ive flown on Delta and United internationally and nobody batted an eye about the batteries. Security literally asked me why i was showing them the inside of my case. There's no issue about taking the drone on the plane (in the hard shell). They fit overhead and are usually smaller than most other carry on items. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE BATTERIES AS A CARRY ON. NEVER place the batteries in your checked luggage..bad fire hazard

Consider that most aircraft now have same conditions in the baggage area as the main cabin - I find this a strange comment. The old days of unpressurised / unheated baggage are long gone.

Second what will you do if your LiPo does decide to go meet its maker ? Throw it out the window ??

Lastly - its probably better in the baggage area - the detectors will warn the flight deck ... but if in the cabin - all hell would break out and panic of passengers as your LiPo does its death dance !!

OK - seriously .............. the size of LiPo we have is very close to the maximum size allowed by airlines and as I say - I know airlines that would refuse you boarding if they found such LiPo.
I just felt it wise to warn people that LiPo's are a very sensitive subject for airlines .... particularly after the fiasco of the Boeing 777's and the Dreamliner having their new design LiPo battery packs failing.

I just returned from Maui and brought my P3S as a carry on.  I have my DJI hard shell backpack and per Dept of Transportation, batteries are not allowed as checked in but must be carry on.   No questions going through TSA and I didn't even open it.  I just walked right on the plane and placed it in the overhead bin.
