    Does anybody use the sun hood for smartphone with iPhone 6/6s Plus? How do you install it?

    Sorry, I didn't mention. The monitor hood is the one offered by DJI for smartphones.

    After assembling it and attached the velcro on the sides, place it inside of the tablet holder. And, place your iPhone inside of the sun hood and clamp the tablet holder closed. It should look similar to this:

    Thank you for the information and picture, however this hood looks larger that the iPhone. The one I have been sent by DJI is exactly the same width with iPhone 6s Plus. The problem is that you cannot move it slightly off center in order to avoid touching the volume button of the phone.

    Yeah, that's not going to work. You could try increasing the size of the hole in the shade.

    Thank you for your suggestion, I am going to do it. However, DJI should not advertise that as compatible with iPhone 6/6s Plus.

    The dimensions of the iPhone 6 plus and iPhone 6s plus are slightly different. Perhaps the volume buttons are a little higher on the iPhone 6 plus too?
