    A very useful piece of equipment to anyone wanting to protect valuable tools of any trade really.

    I was referred to B&H by a buddy into photography, but my hobby is RC Helis which brings me to-->

    My 1550 sees duty as the enclosure for a 1000watt multi-chem battery charger and the dual server power supplies that run it. At no time have I ever felt that the equipment inside was in danger of damage from water or impacts. Tbh, I used it to win a safe bet that I wouldn't toss the case, electronics included, into a pool. Of course I knew my equipment would be just fine.

    The foam, while not being used in this particular case, is really nice stuff and the pick-n-pluck process is fool proof. I ended up using a layer of it to enclose 600$ worth of long range RC aircraft transmitters. Really easy to outline the piece you want to cut out and you can literally just knock it loose and pull it with your fingers.

    Finally, the case itself just looks cool. I've gotten some weird looks carrying around with folks being rather curious as to what could possibly need to be carried in a mil-spec case :)

    FYI, we use these cases at NASA to protect many of our sensitive devices/tools. You can buy one knowing your stuff isn't going anywhere. :P

    Con wise, the only thing I can think of is that the case is bulky. However, for the protection that this case provides it's an acceptable loss. Honestly, any case that is going to protect to the level of one of these isn't going to be very compact. That said, the fiber reinforced plastic that these are made of is fairly light.

    It kept two Nikons dry for a week of white water rafting. We were drenched! But the foam inside is terrible, it crumbles at each section. I did not like that. I wish I was a solid block and I could cut out what I needed. The present foam system is poor.

    Comments about 1550 Case with Foam (Silver):

    They make the best hardcases you can buy, ive owned several brands and they are similar to pelican cases, but the Pelican brand is clearly superior in comparison. better in all aspects.

      Comments about 1550 Case with Foam (Desert Tan):

      We use these in the oil and gas industry to carry equipment to locations. They have served their purpose exceptionally well and hold up great to the harsh environments they get exposed to. The metal padlock tabs are one of my favorite features being we sometimes carry upwards of $ worth of equipment.

                      Comments about 1550 Case with Foam (Black):

                      We have about 30 of the Pelican cases in various sizes.
                      Extremely strong and rugged, never need to worry about the gear inside if it is packed well.
                      The punch out foam is not all that useful. It tends to break apart quickly if small sections are left as dividers. We typically punch it all out and protect each piece of gear separately.
                      The cases are also heavy. Some of the cases we have weigh as much as the gear inside them, making shipping more expensive.

                                While I do plan on buying more cases for my photo gear, this case I use to pack, store and transport very expensive FES and TENS medical equipment. This case exceedes the quality of the cases provided with the equipment.

                                For everyday use/storage as well as travel - it is convenient and most important, Absolutely rugged with great interior protection!

                                    Comments about 1550 Case with Foam (Yellow):

                                    I used the 1550 case to secure my quadcopter and camera gear for travel. The diced foam on the inside makes it very easy to customize for your gear. I even made double layered or "secret" spots on the second layer of diced foam. The yellow really pops and makes me feel less like an amateur and more like a professional. Super durable and waterproof! This case was $ less than a similar custom quadcopter case, but I made the 1550 fit way more things. Very happy with this purchase. Only downside is its weight. Pretty hefty, especially after all the gear is inside. Totally worth it for the durability and reassurance of protected gear.

                                        There isn't much new about pelican cases but they are tough as nails and the latch design is easy to operate even with gloves on. My 1550 was for a motorcycle top case and is easy tougher than most of the aluminum cases I've seen.

                                                This case works well with the Phantom (props off) with just a couple of minor problems.

                                                First the foam in the lid falls out easily. This can be fixed with some double sided tape or velcro. However with the foam in the lid, it's a bit of a tight fit closing the lid.

                                                It fits the Phantom itself with the props off, the remote, the props and a couple of spare batteries. I belive some FPV will also fit but I haven't added it yet so I don't know.

                                                It's less expensive than some of the cases that were designed for use with the Phantom but still works well. I would recommend it.
