I'm not sure if the head with Maxon motors will fit into a 1650. It is a huge case. I use one for my Tak FSQ106ED witha WO 70mm gude scopefitted. It would probably be cheaper and better to get one custom made to hold the G11.
I purchased my case for the G11 from:
4 Aileen Ave
They can make any size case you want and also have a lot of pre made cases people haven't picked up at real bargain prices. I was very surprised how cheap these cases were. I picked up a case for my G11 including foam for $70 and it is rock solid ply and aluminium construction with the best hardware I have seen on a case.
A 1650 from memory was about $500 and is a very heavy case without anything in it but it does have wheels and handles.
Well worth going over with the G11 and have a look. Make sure you take the mount with you. They can even cut the foam for you.
