    After trying various different ways to mount a tablet, and noticing there isn't a huge varity of mounts for us UK guys, I'm more than happy with this setup.

    Holds really firm and sturdy.

    Will post links below if anyone is interested

    I have a similar mount for my p3s controller but I have that metal piece on the end flipped the other way so the tablet is more vertical. If the tablet is too flat you may have problems seeing it when it's sunny outside and the tablet will block the antenna when the drone is directly overhead.

    I hope your slow boat is faster the mine is. I ordered some lights and they said they shipped from China on March 7.
    Still floating along on their way here...LOL

    As for the mount. I use the DJI Inspire mount. It requires another hole, but it is sturdy.
    I am wondering just how long that one mounting point on the controller will hold up. I-Pad will be putting some
    weight to it for sure. Looks well designed. But it's DJI's controller that bothers me on this one.
    Good luck. I hope it works out for you and you have no troubles. It does look good.

    My thoughts also on it blocking the antenna. It is possible though to tilt the bracket back so my well end up adjusting it.
