    I made a quick and dirty homemade iPhone Sun Visor for the DJI Phantom controller, and I was very surprised how much of a noticible difference it makes using a visor in sunny days...works great!

    Used an old watch box that I didn't need, and cut 2 slits on the back so it can easily slide onto the 2 smartphone spring jaws.
    I kept the right side open so it can swing open and closed, so you could touch the screen easier when needed.

    Need: 1 small box, scissors, and black duct tape.
    Time: 15 min
    Cost: $0.00

    Some photos, for those who want to make one yourself. enjoy!

    I made myself a similar cheap construct, only much more amateurish and put together haphazardly. While any type of screen shade does help, it's still far from ideal out in the 'field' in bright sunlight. Also and for myself, I wear glasses/contacts so the constant switching from looking into the little box I made, to the bright sky, close up to distance - really messes up a person's eyes! :shock:

    I'm thinking about a larger tablet or other dedicated screen for FPV - as long as it can be seen relatively well in bright sunlight. Otherwise and down the road, I may have to consider some kind of FPV glasses if I ever want to take advantage of that feature.
