    Try Velcro fasteners... ;-)
    Or some Silicon. A couple of Rubber bands, handy bandages.

    Yeah I thought about the Velcro fasteners, but because of the shape of the remote it wouldn't work :(

    Put a wrist strap on it... Hahaha
    Or clip it to the handy RC Neckstrap.
    I am Left handed here, so ideas galore...
    Lapel pin, like a badge of honor... ;-)

    You can use any magnetic holder provided its magnetic path is closed through steel and not through the air.

    Any magnetic leakage will affect compass of tablet/ phone so be careful.

    In general try to avoid use of magnetic materials :)
