[Pelican-X]

I use video primarily to show my craft. I was never a great writer (thus I became a builder)
Check out the on going video build log here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLg3z6hcUw1gr_X6vKX7sQXhQ14IMR9mnG

Long story short I wanted to created a full desktop platform inside a Pelican case, that would be shock proof, water resistant, light weight and strong. This was custom built for an enthuses who planned on frequent travel and upgrades. This person could have easily built their own PC but tasked me with the custom chassis and design concept to take a portable rig to the next level.

All in it took 2 months and 2 major re-designs till I found the correct recipe. The case is 100% as functional as you would expect a pelican case to be. No ports or vents are exposed once the case is sealed and secure. This is also standardized size to fit in an overhead on a plane.

Any question just ask. I plan on building more like this if people are interested and the repeating build would go a lot quicker now that I've tested everything and know what I'm doing. Thanks for checking out the work!
