About two months ago I bought a DJI Phantom Vision 2 Plus. Now it seems I’m addicted about flying this machine. I go fly it every chance I get and it’s always a rush.
Originally my Phantom came with prop guards and I used to carry the drone by holding those. I know I know is not the way to treat this bird but I didn’t have a case.
After searching for quite a few drone cases in Amazon.com and other sites I came across a recommendation for this one. About two weeks ago I received the case from TradeCraft Cases. This is a solid and air tight case. It is so much better to have this bird in one place with all the battery, chargers, extra props, etc…It’s also Waterproof, Dust proof, and Crushproof which is perfect for me.
This case seems to have the travel side covered. The case has a handle you can pull up to roll the case when you don’t want to carry it. The pull handle has a lock so it won’t come up unless you press that to unlock it. The front of the case has two locations to put locks for when you want to send the drone through cargo (Remember to take the batteries out of the case if you are doing this since it’s prohibited to send those through cargo).
First thing I noticed was the solid handles, one on the side and one on top when sitting upright. Also the option to make this into a roller is another plus.
The inside the cut outs are perfect for this DJI model. You have room for 6 batteries if you have one on the drone. The remote cut out section is also made to fit. You can put the remote in with the wifi extender and the phone clip.
The case is a bit on the heavier side but for the material and protection is giving I can live with that.

I took the instax mini 8 Fujifilm sent me to a Drink and Click Austin, Texas event a few days ago. This is the ultimate break the ice camera. People are not used to getting a print right on the spot, so this magic from decades ago got some great reactions when the film comes out.
The camera is pretty basic. It suggest the light setting you should shoot at and you just point and shoot. The film is a bit expensive \(About .70 cents per shot\) but the reaction is priceless. Also, the colors on the fully develop images are fantastic. Great little Christmas present.

I got this little camera for the size and cuteness of the thing. Yes, there are much better cameras in the market but for $99 this took my money.
The camera it’s pretty simple. Press once to take a picture. Press twice to start recording. Then press one more time the top button to stop it.
Pictures - The images are a decent 6MP Still Photos. These have to be taken with enough light and firm hand to get the best out of it. Most of the ones I took today were blurred. Yes, I need to get more experience taking stills with this little cube but it works so far.
Video - This little cube Records HD 1080p/720p video with sound. On this post is one of the first videos I took with this cube. Well, actually my neighbor took it down for a small bike ride in the Cul-De-Sac. This sample is 1080p.
How is the video? The view angle is good. You get to see a lot of the area in front and side of the camera. Sound seems a bit low but I must play with it a bit more to get a better opinion. The quality seems to be great at 1080P. This is the setting I recorded this at.
Note: If you get the camera without the MicroSD card and attempt to plug it in to the PC it won’t find it. You have to have the card inside the camera for the PC to read the camera.
Would I buy it again? Yes, with one day of use I can see I can come up with a lot of different ideas how to use it. Plus the kids seem to enjoy it a lot.
