    I am a total noob at this. For some of you that use smartphones for flight, how are you keeping the phone on the holder. There is s good 1/4" gap or more when the phone is resting in there. I haven't had a chance to fly mine yet. I have an iPhone 6s Plus

    Squeeze the holder, it ratchets tighter

    Yea, there are tabs on the side that flip up and then the top raises and lowers. Your phone certainly is that tall.

    Open the tabs on either side of the holder then place your phone in and squeeze the clamp down.

    Big rubber bands work out real well

    I have the phone in there horizontal and have the holder as far as it will go (squeezed shut).

    Does anyone know if Ritchi can edit way points during a mission and resume the mission after the way points have been edited?

    But if you have your phone in horizontal the bottom of the phone should rest on the flipped out tabs and not on the bottom of the holder. Then it will squeeze shut just fine.

    Flip out the two little phone holder tabs on either side of the tablet holder. The phone rests on them & then the spring-loaded part will hold it in place.
