    Got my phantom 4 not long ago and so far loving it
    I haven't done my maiden flight yet but will be soon

    Few questions will the glair on the display really be an issue on a bright sunny day should i get a sunhood?

    Only problem is i cant find any sunhood that will fit the nexus 9

    I can however get one that can fit my Samsung Galaxy 6 so perhaps i could go down that road.

    Just wondering how many of you do use a sunhood and does it make much of a difference?

    What device do you guys prefer using as your display a phone or tablet?

    I couldn't find one for my Tab A either so I made one out of black cardboard that I bought from the newsagent.
    It makes a HUGE difference.

    I bought the iPad 9.7" tablet sun hood and it fits my Samsung TAB A 9.7" OK if that's any help.

    Padhat sunshade is what I use. They come in many sized and are at a different angle than the others which I think helps a lot. Turning my screen brightness to the max also helps with mine. I use a Nexus 7 and Samsung tab S.
