The bag will probably work for the FB version you just have to loosen up your FB and slide it toward the tail when you are transporting it (PITA though). Otherwise im looking for a good metal case myself......

The Align 550 bag will not zip with the FB version, about 2inches plus the paddle will stick out. Don't try to shove it in or you'll bend the flybar. It's really not bad just leaving it out a little. I stretched my 550, so it really won't fit in the bag anymore.

Why don't you get a Trex600 bag and it will fit in there nicely.
Cheers!

Mine fits too.
But IMO it's a real pain to get it in that way and the bag does put some pressure on the flybar.

I just leave the flybar sticking out and zip up around it. Not a big deal to me.

You mean in the Trex660 carry bag? Still tight fit?
It should fit in there nicely.

This one is killing me too. I want a hard case for mine. I could have swore a sponsor on this board flashed that they had 500-600 size cases in a banner ad, but I haven't seen it since the one day.

I haven't seen any for 550's and 500 model is too short at 36" so we are definitely looking at these .50 size cases. Weighs up to 50 pounds... 53 inches long.... Personally I don't need a tank proof case, I'll keep my Align nylon bag!
