    Sorry if this has been discussed before, searching didn't reveal much. Does anyone have any lanyard recommendations for the P3 controller? There are lots on amazon, but I don't know what length/width to look for - I just want something that's comfortable to wear for an extended period.
    Thanks...

    You can get the OEM shoulder strap here.

    I suppose it would need to be adjustable. Not everyone is 6'1" like me ;)

    That one for the Inspire 1 looks a bit overly complicated! I thought lanyards were to sling around your neck and attach a TX?
    The one in the link looks like you have to plan to wear it days in advance :)

    I bought this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UM6TR4C/

    I have been super happy with it! Very thick and keeps everything right where it should be. Also, you can un-clip it from the neck strap to set it down if you want to.

    I actually just ordered the DJI Inspire 1 version to see how that worked because I needed something cheap to add on to my battery order to get free shipping. It looks a lot more complex though. I might just sell it.

    Is that design to take the strain away from your neck?

    I have the DJI one (got it free) and it does the job just fine, fully adjustable. I did find that with the P3 controller the eyelet for the lanyard is kind of thick for most clevis snaps, so I added a small key ring to it, makes it a lot easier and faster to snap on.

    I'm getting the Space One FPV strap - it's the #1 bestseller on Amazon. http://amzn.to/1AyDaow

    It's got a quick release connection, which is a nice feature.
