    Seems like Element have released yet another new case:

    Element Flight 5

    Any thoughts?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is the first snap-on case Element has made. Looks alright, I'm not in love with it. They didn't bulk up the corners with extra protection like they do on their other cases.

    I still use the Formula 4 on my iPhone 4. This has been a great case that I wish they would re-make for the 5/5s. I would sincerely miss being able to pop the bottom of the case on and off quickly for docking.

    Just ordered the 5s today as well and I have the Formula 4 case too and love it. I haven't found an Element case for the 5 yet that I want to buy.

    Well, I received my Flight 5 case today (took less than a week to the UK!) and can honestly say it's the best case I have ever owned!

    It has a soft touch feel but is a hard snap on the back style case. The back has a genuine carbon fibre cutout and you even get a lanyard with the case (which I won't use!)

    I have taken some pics with my iPad 2 so apologies for the naff quality! Pics are compared with SGP's Tough Armor case which is actually larger than the Flight 5. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Looks awesome, does it protect the chamfered edges? i m thinking of getting the same case for the my black slate 5, wanted to know if it will protect the edges.

    Thanks..
