    So, what's everyone using for a lanyard/neck strap as I'm assuming that it isn't going to come with one in the box?

    Also, good place to look for a tablet sun shield?

    I haven't done it yet but have been thinking of using my GoPro Chesty in some way. I want to have lanyard support so that I can catch/launch the phantom with the other hand. Great Topic

    For my P2V+ and Nexus 7 tablet I made a custom hood out of cardboard and duct tape. Then I spray painted it flat black. This way it's the exact size I need it to be and I made cutouts so it stays in place on my tablet bracket.

    The only drawback is that it does not fold up to fit in my case. That just gave me an idea - for the next one I'll use Velcro to attach the top to the sides and use duct tape for hinges on the other sides. This way I can detach the Velcro and fold it up.
