    Carbon fiber mount or plastic 3D printed snap on holder are the two most common options.

    Search the forums here for links.

    If you want the best then go for Secraft which is the setup I use (the Futaba version though) but......... it isn't cheap!!

    What you will get though is a beautifully made CNC precision machined piece of kit that's bombproof and beautifully balanced.

    You will need three parts:

    The TX tray -> http://www.secraft.net/shop/step1.php?number=1433
    The FPV monitor holder -> http://www.secraft.net/shop/step1.php?number=1264
    And optionally the shoulder straps -> http://www.secraft.net/shop/step1.php?number=1427&b_code=B20090408041642&c_code=C20110111064239

    The whole set up gives you the ability to attach or detach the TX from the tray in about 2 seconds and is VERY robust.

    The whole kit is around $175 - You did say you wanted the best though :D

    Man I've been going back and forth about dropping the coin for the Secraft tray setup. I know it's quality gear but I'm still not convinced I'll get my money's worth out of it. I don't need the monitor holder since I have one I like better already, but I would like to find a double-strap tray that can balance all the weight of my monitor and FPV gear strapped to it. I can just balance it now with a single strap, but two would be easier to work with. Are you using the extended arms that push out the strap attachment points?

    I know what you mean with the cost but..... I swallowed hard and clicked 'add to basket' then checked out quickly before I could change my mind! :lol:
    I have to say though - I do not regret it one bit. All of the Secraft stuff is really excellent quality, fits together perfectly and you get the impression that if you dropped any of it down some concrete steps, the steps would break!

    I didn't get the extended arms as I though I would try the standard ones that come with the tray first. If they were no good I could spend more money :eek:

    Happy to say that the standard length ones are fine as long as you carefully adjust the dual straps (which are very comfortable). You are able to lengthen or shorten each of the four straps individually so you can get the whole harness to ride higher or lower on your back/shoulders to suit your flying style.

    It really is a nice piece of kit.
