Default Case/storage for 2 transmitters

Anyone have a decent bag that works for 2 radios? Want to be able to bring my 10px and my daughterís 3pv and keep them in the same bag.

Go to a shop where they sell theater/disco equipment. They do sell cases in all kind of dimensions with cube tile foam you can pull out to any shape.

Go to a camera shop, gun store or a shop like Cabela’s. Buy a pelican like case with pick and pluck foam. B&H photo is a good place for mail order.

I use this case here:
https://www.harborfreight.com/18-in-...ase-69318.html

It comes with pull/pick foam to customize your storage needs where I fit 2 radios, plus my power supply and iCharger 406 duo

First radio is a HiTec Lynx 4S and second radio is a FS Noble

I'm going to recommended the Harbor freight Apache line.

I've had one for about a year, I keep my radio, charger, batteries, charging leads, and ESC programmer in mine. It's been dropped, stood on, kicked, etc. No issues ever.

I much prefer using Kaizen foam or similar. Holds up much better than pluck and pull and the shape is more precise if you do a good job cutting.

You can find yoga/pilates/exercise mats that are closed cell foam and they came out cheaper or did. Hot knives are cheap online.

*edit - the mat I have is much denser than the light gray standard foam for cases. I imagine it is closed cell to repel moisture/sweat.

I find that Harbor Freight pick-n-pull foam falls apart easily and has to be glued. Their knockoff Pelican cases work well otherwise.

that is the issue I had with the protek hard case with pick-n-pull. I got both my radios in there perfect and as soon as I pull them out the first time the foam just breaks apart into all the smallest pieces. Maybe I didnít pick it apart properly, but regardless not a huge fan
