And now the other extreme: small case for hiking, light travels, and whenever things might get rough...

A kid's lunch box and some reused packaging foam. Took 5 minutes and was free.
Securely holds tello, props, spare props, 2 batteries, a small bluetooth controller (or another battery), charge cable. I could add some foam inserts to hold 2 more batteries but i don't need more when travelling.
Mounting the props is quicker than tello's wifi startup so not an issue. Removing takes 5sec.
The lunchbox is extremely sturdy. To improve one could use o e of these waterproof otter or pelican cases but i could not find one locally that would fit.

I also have 3 commercial cases but they all have their problems. None can withstand severe abuse, and most don't securely hold the batteries in place. Shake them a bit and the batteries work loose.

That resulted in one broken motor and a damaged battery for me: the battery worked loose, ended on top of the motor and got punctured when the case was squeezed, bending the shaft at the same time.

Since you took your kid's lunch box. Where do they take their lunch to school now?

Very good your idea. I'll make a similar and then post the photos. I thought mine is too big. I want a more compact one to fit inside my backpack.
