    Hi Guys ...

    I am using an Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 LTE 7 inch with my brand new P3P. I use these relatively "small" Tablet because two reasons:

    - I need a Android Tablet to mirror the screen to my Moverio BT-200 goggles
    - The 7 inch Samsung fits perfectly into my DJI Backpack into the compartment for the tablet

    Because the screen of the Samsung is a very much reflective I have designed an foldable sunshade for the tablet. If you have a 3D Printer close to you, here are the STL files.

    The Quality of the DJI Backpack is brilliant as it is designed and produced by Manfrotto. Its quite expensive but very cool ...

    Nevertheless I wasn`t happy with the way the Phantom is transported within the backpack. If you put the Phantom into the case as it is you will see very quickly some damage on the Backpack as the motor screws will cause some issues here.

    To prevent any damage on my **** expensive backpack I have designed these Motor Caps ... Simple and Easy ...

    May work for your backpack as well :)

    Get a yard of black cloth and throw it over your sun shade and head and you will be astonished at the improvement in the screen picture when you don't have any natural sunlight to fight. it is easy to use and easy to take off it you need to look directly at the bird.
