Re: Cymbal flight cases
A flight case seems like your best option, unless you know a trusted person at your destination. If you do, you may be able to just ship the cymbals out a few days before hand. The extra packagaing should be enough to keep them protected, given that your case is decent. You'd have to deal with shipping them back, however. Depending on prices where you are, that could add up to be pretty costly.
