    Yes, but ... Ok, I don't know if everyone is like this but my holder that came with the P2VP isn't real stable...I doesn't hold my cell phone rock steady. A tablet that is two or three times the size of my phone?

    I just want something that won't budge.

    I think I'm going to get a Pelican Case. I found one on eBay that will hold the tablet and the controller. The case will be $40 and the foam insert will another $30.

    Just put a 1/2" thin rubber washer in the phone holder's cup where the ball attaches. Keeps my iPad rock steady. :D

    I also added a small piece of rubber band under the metal post clamp to keep it steady. Metal on metal didn't have much friction.

    Consider, if you haven't already that the Samsung Tab 4 does not have a compass or magnetic sensor AFAIK. Some features will not function without it.
    There is no way to provide this functionality later as it is hardware.

    The following compares the Tab S to the Tab 4
    Big difference in $ but BIG differences in device. I sold my Tab 4 and went with the S.

    The Droneworx mount I use fits in my case as it is not attached to the controller. You had questioned the support in another thread and I can only tell you, mine is rock solid. It is just like the one pictured in this thread by Geert

    What is this 3D printed holder?

    I made my own bracket out of a switch plate and a plate wall hanger and it worked fine for my iPad mini .

    Great... Already bought the Tab 4. :O(

    What won't work without a compass or magnetic sensor AFAIK?
