    Hey,

    Did any of your guys purchase a DJI neck strap? I know it did not come with the kit - ( I THINK IT SHOULD! )

    Anyway, I looked on ebay as saw all the straps for like 10$ would be shipping from china.

    Is there any closer locations online or maybe locally at some chain that would have them where I could just pick something up if not DJI but something similar?

    Thanks,
    -O

    I just used a spare lanyard we had laying around the house.

    I, too, used a lanyard from an old name tag/security pass handed out at some convention. Perfectly adequate. I would not spend $10 on a strap. I do like using a strap as it allows for a lighter touch on the controls (IMHO).

    I use a strap that I got with a Disney pass last month. Works great.

    I use a strap I got from my Granddaughter that has the N.E. Patriots logo all over it. I like it because there's only one clip, not two... and I changed the clip out for what looks like a carabiner with a thread lock, to be sure it wouldn't release at a bad moment... Which I've had happen with a previous rig that looked solid. Until it wasn't... :eek: :shock: Dropped the TX on its head.

    The only similar thing I've had happen is having the SeaSucker holding my Nexus 7 to the TX lose suction. The Nexus fell right on the TX, holding both sticks down... While I was already descending. I was able to get the left stick up before it hit the ground, but it still bounced. :(

    I just use a BlackRapid strap. Overkill, I know, but I had it already to use on my DSLRs.
