    The cost of a 60cm case jumps to somewhere around 6-700. This might influence some decisions.
    I guess it needs to be filled with foam dso there is a cost in that and also higher shipping costs.

    So who's in on the standard 15cm deep case? If we can get ten we can do it.

    Please pm me if you would like one and I will update the list in post #1

    I don't see why not. that could be what I end up doing and using my 1620 for gimbal, transmitters and all the other bits!

    Need more numbers. Please PM if you would like one.

    Does anyone have a drawing of the Cinestar 8 with dimensions? I need to send one so they can cut the foam to suit.

    I thought I would ask in-case someone has already done a drawing?.....Tabb?

    This order will be going ahead so please let me know if you want one ASAP or miss out!

    I am placing the order tomorrow. There will be enough for everyone however the people on the forum that pay upfront before I receive the cases and therefor see photos will be at the cost price. Others I will need to charge a bit on to cover the risk of ordering minimum 20 cases.


    I will post the details tomorrow including some postage costs.

    Sam ... Have got some photos of the proposed make-up of the unit? Will it come with or without foam?

    Anyone have suggestions for cheap international postage? It's killing this at the moment with AusPost being around $150-$200

    Hey all ... just on the custom flight cases, I came across this site in the UK. Might help those based in Europe to cut down the postage costs. http://flightcaseuk.com/content/custom-built not sure on costs etc. Might be worth looking into.

    I have not placed the order yet so we can still change suppliers.
