My GPC phantom 3 backpack came in today and i'm impressed by the build quality of this pack. It also fits great on me and seems like the perfect size pack for me (5'6"). My purpose for this pack is mainly to take it on hikes. I believe this pack fits just the occasion, with plenty of pockets in the outside for water, food, etc..

Here are some photos:




The fit is snug so I don't expect my things to be bouncing around in the pack while I hike.
What I have in the pack:
1.p3p with battery on
2. extra battery.
3. RC
4.Battery charger
5.Ipad mini
6.1 set of props


Motor does stick out same as previous model. I can see where the concern is based on previous reviews.






Front pockets have plenty of space for storage and little compartments.


Back has plenty of cushion for comfort during long use. I will test this out soon.


Rear large pocket. I suppose this section could be used for a large size laptop.

Side pockets

GPC Pack next to GPC hard case.


I have worn the back pack around and it feels very comfortable. I will test it out during a hike and come back and review it. let me know if you guys would like any specific photo. Overall i'm very impressed by this backpack. I did like the dji hard case backpack however, there wasn't any storages on the outside which made it difficult to hike with.

I got this same backpack this week too. Its a lot bigger than I was expecting it to be. One of the things I wish was different was that flap thing on the back that you have to buckle to stop it from hanging down. The problem with that is then you have to undo the 2 buckles all the time just to unzip the bag.

It is made very well though.

Yeah for short distances I don't bother putting the bottom buckle on.

I am in the UK and bought one of ebay, someone had brought it back from the US and I am very impressed, great bit of kit, the only thing with mine is the inserts were for the Phantom 2, and I have the 3, everything fits ok apart from the RC, on your photo, has your RC still got the clamp attached, its hard to tell from the photo.

I've had mine (P2V version) for well over a year and had to tweak it slightly to fit the P3 but it works fine. I carried it through the Himalayas and have taken it on quite a few plane trips. It is great - I am SO glad I went for this one. I had a Pelican case before and while that is nice in a way, this is SO much more convenient.

nhoover, can you show what you did to get the RC to fit, i have mine sitting upright, but the antennaes are protruding above the motors, so have to be careful when zipping up
