    I haven't seen any mention of it on here yet, so thought I'd share the news that DJI has released their first official sun shields compatible with the Phantom 3 and Inspire 1 transmitters.

    Available in a tablet and smartphone version.

    Just bought Apple mini unit using the pilot app. $36 with S&H. Shipping was more than the unit.

    This makes the monitor system top heavy. Wish for a fix for the monitor mount without having to buy the Inspire mount.

    I just ordered some repair parts for my Phantom Vision from Helipal and the shipping cost is steep. But the parts are coming from China. I couldn't find everything I needed from one source in the US. I would have had to place two seperate orders so the shipping would have been close. I ordered the shell, two motors, and ESC's. Shipping was about $36 bringing the order to around $169. Ouch. 15 minutes on my first flight. That's really a bummer.

    I have tried a couple of sunshades for IPAD mini 3. Failure. Will try to find the new one released by DJI. If anyone has a link please let me know. I have the hardest time seeing my screen. :(

    These are the same as the linked shields first version which I have
    They are not deep enough to stop glare
    the new version as linked is deeper and the best one I have found out of the 6 I have ordered

    Here is the old version top and new version bottom Either way with a ipad air I would get the inspire mount as the metal makes a big differance

    thanks!! just ordered the 7.9 inch one. I saw that DJI offered a new shade but wanted 20 bucks to ship a 16 dollar shade. I bet this one is just as good? Would you have a link to that USB cable in your photo? sure looks like quality. thanks!

    Hey 2nd
    Question: I noticed a new update on DJI Pilot app today June 26th on my IPAD MINI 3 that I use with Phantom 3. So I updated it. So know do I have to update it on my controller and my Phantom 3? Im a rookie on this. I just updated the firmware a couple weeks ago. Is this something I have to also do on Phantom 3? Thanks for your help.....

    Have similar one for the air 2, without upgrading to the Inspire mount its too top heavy for long periods. Works great on the tripod mount though
