Default Futaba 4PK radio case

Hey, i just looking a good radio case for the 4PK but the only thing i found (from futaba) was the one that fits the 3PK. I want a really good case (not plastic and that stuff)

Unfortunately, there are not any other cases that will fit the 3PK/4PK radio innards. Worse, you have only few choices in materials of the case: plastic, plastic, and no plastic [] If you want a metal case of some other material for the case to house your 4PK innards, you will have to make your own case.

After reading another thread, I eralized you might be asking about a carrying case, not the body shell of the radio itself.

You can find alimunim pistol cases with the foam, but the foam will not be precut to fit your 4PK. This is where you will have to bust out the magic marker, trace teh outline of your 4PK on th foam, and bust out a box cutter knife with at least 4inches of blade to cut it. I did this for my 3PK and still have that pistol case for my radios. It is actually much more durable than even the Futabal alum pistol case.

Check out this other thread concerning pistol cases for radios:

Thanks, i already read that. I saw a 3PK carrying metal case but i think is precut. What i must do? You have a 3PK? What carry case you have? (if you have)

I got mine from a sports and outdoors store, Academy. I paid $25 USD where the Futaba one would have cost at least $60USD (a rip off if you ask me)

There is a quality difference that comes along with that price, trust me I have the Futaba one, no other case I've seen under $50 comes close, yeah it's just a case but I'd rather not have something fall apart on me.
