Anyone have experience with air travel with the hardshell backpack from DJI?
Buy Phantom Series Multifunctional Backpack - DJI Store

The dimensions seem to fit, and airline regulations have most likely been something they've looked closely at in this case, but is there something else to consider?
Obviously the amount of batteries needs to conform to the airline restrictions regarding lithium batteries, but anything else to be aware of?

I bought the DJI backpack specifically for air travel between Australia and the U.K.
It worked really well, especially as it made security happy because all my batteries were kept in a LiPo-safe bag inside it. I was also able to keep my iPad in one of the pockets as well.
It fits everything I need. Including all cables etc. The only thing I couldn’t fit was my goggles, which I leave at home to stop any grief over battery.

Hope this helps.

We use a hard case very similar, but that then goes inside a large suitcase.

Check with your airline if you’re thinking of taking in hand luggage because regulations keep changing. Emirates, for example, now no longer allow a drone to be carried onboard as hand luggage.
