4 Easy Steps To Make Your Own Drone Case: DIY

Make Your Own Drone Case!

In this DIY tutorial I am going to show you how to make your very own DJI Phantom case.

Even if you do not have this same drone you can follow along and adjust to make it work for you!

Step #1: Find A Plastic Container

If you do not have one laying around the house you will need to go out and buy one.

Just make sure it is big enough to fit your drone.

The one I found at Target is 15x12x10 (Pictured below)

It was clear so I painted the interior of it white to make it look a little but more professional from the outside.

Step #2: Make the Cut Outs

Find the original box and remove the cardboard cutouts that held your drone securely.

Cut it down to size to fit inside of your box but do not cut out any compartments that hold any accessories.

If the cutout you made does not fit the box perfectly and is a little to small I suggest you out some sort of foam, newspaper, etc. to insure that your drone is not shaking around.

I also out a sheet of styrofoam under the cardboard to raise the the drone so there is less space from the lid.

Step #3: Make the Lid

Glue/tape some sort of foam to the bottom side of the lid so if the box flips over your drone is protected.

The styrofoam I used fell apart pretty easily so I covered it in masking tape to make sure small bits of foam did not fall inside of the box.

Step #4 Put Everything Inside!

As you can see pictured below I fit my Phantom 3 Standard drone, the remote control, the propellers, and you can even fit the charger!

Once you have everything in there you may need to adjust the amount of foam used under the drone and on the lid to make sure everything is in securely.
