Should I remove the bulb when transporting Godox / Flashpoint Explor 600?

Hi, I'm new to off-camera flash. I picked up the Flashpoint XPLOR 600 HSS TTL and its user manual is notoriously sparse. But it does refer to the cap that goes on the reflector as the  "transport cap."

Together the reflector and transport cap look like a sturdy way to store and transport the light without removing the flashtube.

The other option would be to remove the flashtube and put it in the foam-lined cardboard box it came in. There appears to be a slot in the bag the monolight came with designed for the cardboard box.

I'm not sure which would be best if the bag suffered a knock or drop. I'll mostly be putting the flash in the trunk of a car, maybe even in a bicycle pannier. I'm also curious if either method is safe for air travel.

Thoughts?
