    I use my iPad mini with both my P3 Pro and P4. My problem is even though I use a lanyard around my neck, if I move around without holding the controller it flips upside down because the iPad mini's weight.

    Is there some other kind of lanyard to hold the controller so it stays right side up?

    Thanks, Dennis

    hoodmanusa.com makes a controller support belt, 129.00 is up there but it looks like its worth that. I am seriously considering one.

    May be a nice harness but the pic with the antenna profile is asking for trouble. Unless the bird is directly overhead.

    I'm assuming you already know this, but the antennas are adjustable ;)

    Oh, and never takeoff with a battery that is not 100%

    Drink more beer. If you get the lanyard length correct you can rest the RC on your stomach...
