Default Hard case for my Beam

Looking around for a decent hard case for my Beam E4...
Came across Mike's photo here:

Mike Tell me this is a Generic he picked up a few years ago, looks like a really good fit, its not an Align case which is somewhat of a tight fit for a Beam.

I currently use the Beam E4 (Wingtote) soft case, but it does not do well strapped on the back of a motorcycle.

What are you guys using as hard cases for your Beam E4?

Just made a wooden crate Beam sized lined with camp mat and some webbing on the floor to lock the heli down. I designed it so that the height is exactly the same as the Beam so the lid locks the head down and nothing can move. Its a bit heavy, but there is no chance of the heli moving and since its designed to be strapped to the back of my bike I'd prefer it to be strong than light. While I'm no carpenter and its not pretty I'm sure it protect the helicopter well.

Most of the club guys here in Korea use a generic 450 hard case and just custom cut the foam to make it fit.

The one I used to have my Beam in, worked very well for me and looks very similar to the one you linked to.
