    This is my ipad air mount works great and well balanced .Love the huge screen compared to my iphone
    Can be done for less than 40.00 and removes easy for pack up just unlick go pro mount.
    I posted parts of this earlier on a mini ipad but thought a full size ipad would be better and it is.
    Now I have 14 flights on it and love the set up! easy and cheap no cobbleing together misc parts

    Nice. I have an iPad mini on mine and I've been really happy with it too. So much nicer to have a bigger screen to look at. Do you have a shade to use so you don't get too much glare? I tried using the iHoodie, but didn't have much luck with it staying on so I currently don't have anything to shade it, but I definitely need something.

    Don't use anything currently I did see the hoodie but was waiting for others to check out. It is not to bad with the big screen even if glares I get better picture than small screen and glare

    Cheers. Looks good. May do the same with my ipad mini.

    This has to be the best way I have seen a larger screen mounted.

    Looks great....BUT does the helmet front mount attach to the transmitter via stickiness/Glue??? If so I'm really worried about it coming off. After all it's designed for a small GoPro not a heavy full size iPad.

    Do you also have issues with turning the whole setup super front heavy?

    I made an amendment using a coat hangar and my iPad 2. Took about two minutes, cost = zero. Works a treat. Photos on Phantom Vision Owners Facebook page.

    Do you need a cellular Ipad Air or will just the WIFI version work on the phantom 2?

    no just wifi

    Since my first post I relocated my strap connection so it balances no hands
    added a screen block ( total cost 5.00 ) its just a plastic folder cut to size and Velcro
    folds up for storage in my tradecraft case :D

    I love the extra size so I can read the battery level and and Sats and see my fpv a lot better
    I have run 6 batteries through and the charge is still at 40% way better than my power hungry iphone5

    Would this still allow for the controller to fit into the DJI drone backpack case?
