    I a complete newbie to the world of drones. But today the P4 had its maiden flight. Took it very carefully with my armbands on! Then took them off and flew a little bit further out. All went well (and she is safely back in her case in one piece so that a result!)

    One thing that was a bit of an issue was the reflection on the screen of my iPad. I using an iPad Air 2 so it pretty large and a bit too heavy for the controller. But at this time I can't justify a new iPad mini, (the boss won't allow it!) I looked at various sun shades on Amazon but they seemed to be for the P3 and a lot of the reviews were not that great. Can anyone recommend a good quality shade that will fit my iPad. I would rather spend a
    Bit more on quality that will last than a
    Cheap one that does not fit very well.

    I have the same problem look for sun shades for the dji inspire as it is the same mount on the controller.

    I have spent as much as 80.00 for a sun screen and also just cut out a cardboard box painted it black and used it for a sunshade.
    what ever you use you will not get nthe same effect everytime.
    some days you will be able to see the tablet clear as a bell and other days you won't be able to see a thing in it.
    kinda like snow blindness.
    this all depends on where the sun is and how bright or how dull it is outside.
    sunshades are not a super fix.

    Right above you.
    Just make a cheap on out of a big piece of cardboard and some black masking tape.
