    My wife will be taking her Phantom 4 Pro 2.0 on a trip to the Philippines in August and the backpack we bought just isn't working out. So she's thinking of going with one of the following options below:

    This hard shell case:

    or this case that slips over the DJI foam case:

    My concern about the hard shell case is that there might not be enough room for an 8" tablet, like Crystal Sky or a larger Android tablet. Also, are these small enough for airline carry on, including small regional airlines?

    Those cheap hard shell cases are very good.
    They have a 33mm wide slot beside the drone that fits an 8.4 inch tablet
    Any case for a Phantom will be too big for the smaller overhead storage in smaller planes

    Like Meta4, I've got one of those hardshell cases for my P4 and I like it a lot. Great protection for not much money. The tablet slot in my case is a perfect fit for my 8.4" M3 Mediapad tablet, which may be the same tablet as Meta has. A word of caution, there are several versions of that case available with the foam insert designed to handle different versions of the Phantom. Be 100% sure the case you buy is actually pictured with your model Phantom and controller in the case. What I've seen some times is the case being sold has a foam insert designed for a different Phantom than the one described.

    I use the manfrotto aviator backpack MB BP-D1 and I am able to fit my drone, rc, ipad pro 10.5, 3-4 batteries, dslr, laptop nd associated chargers with no issues. I have flown numerous times with it and it fit in an overhead bin very comfortably except for some smaller planes as previously mentioned.

    Yours looks like the hard shell case I linked above. So it does fit the larger tablet, that was a concern. I think I'll go with that, since the wife wants a hard shell case. We both think it offers better protection.

    I also have the Manfrotto, and can vouch for it being an awesome backpack. No wasted space, yet room for everything.

    I have the Manfrotto D1 and can't fault it. It's an older bag that was actually designed for Phantom 2 and 3 but it fits my P4P V1 just fine. A year ago you'd be looking at £160 for the bag but it can now be had for under £100 (mine was £86) .
    It fits my drone, four batteries (one in the drone) and all the cables and the RC, plus there's a compartment for a laptop and one for an iPad.
