Our latest shipment is due to arrive early June 2014. We are the ONLY Australian TBS distributor to stock this item!
It was engineered specifically for the TBS DISCOVERY. The pre-cut inserts protect your DISCOVERY and the pluckable foam section at the top can be completely customized thanks to pluckable foam. When we travel we utilize this area to store goggles, groundstation, ground station antennas, and a pair of diapers to avoid "brown pants" moments.
The foam is rigid, but can easily be cut with a carpet knife to accept gimbals (e.g. DISCOVERY PRO), GPS mounts and whatever else your DISCOVERY is lucky enough to carry through the air. The DISCOVERY compartment is further covered with a separate section of foam for protection and also some privacy for Mr. DISCO from the spying eyes of evil airport security :)
You can fit up to 3 batteries inside the bottom section. Two spares and one in the model - which is what airport security seems to clear without too much discussion. Contrary to international law, of course, which is actually unrestricted on LiPos the right size for the DISCOVERY.
Some further smarts went into the dimensions. We followed the maximum allowed size for carry-on, to maximize the size but minimize the cost of having to pay separately for excess check-in luggage.
In short: this is how we travel. We've taken this suitcase across the globe and back in our beta testing, and we had a lot of fun in between. No more nasty surprises when arriving at destination and the DISCOVERY got the "soccer team" treatment.

- 1x TBS DISCOVERY (with battery inside)
- 2x TBS LiPo 3.3Ah 4S - 4.5Ah 4S
