Any suggestions on a good tablet holder to buy?
I would buy an Inspire 1 mobile device holder but it requires you to drill a hole in your RC. See the post here. If you have more questions, just ask. Very simple to do...
+1 I Luv's it on both my TX's
and centers nicely
With a little help from my forum friends, I did the Inspire mod also...
It's off the subject but I have to ask.What's the added toggle switch for?
OK, I'll tell you. Ever see a 007 movie where his license plate switches out, well it's not that. Actually it is one of J Dots custom made Yaw Switches. I have them on both of my Phantoms. Super easy to install. LIMITED number of ( Plug-n-PLAY ) Slow Yaw Mod Switches FOR SALE! No soldering or cutting! | DJI Phantom Forum
Thanks for the info. It looks interesting but I've only had my P3S for a little more than a month so I'm not ready to start modifying it yet.
It's really simple to install (plug and play) and only takes a few minutes and JDot's slow yaw switch is fantastic. I've got one on my P2V and it works flawlessly. Highly recommended.
This is what I use. Works great if you don't want to spend a lot of money/modify your controller.
The actual name of the thing is GripGo. You can get 'em for ~$3 on Ebay.
are those holders adjustable
The Inspire holder? Yes they are. The top is spring loaded and will hold a phone or a tablet.
I can mount that on my standard transmitter?
Yes you can but you need to mod it by drilling a 1/4" hole for the nut. See the link I posted in this same post for more details.
Yes, with a little modifying. It is pretty easy to do. You drill a hole, use a threaded nutsert or a regular nutsert if you have the hand tool to install them. I don't own the tool so I went with a threaded type. I cut the plastic away with a razor knife and drilled a pilot hole. I enlarged it to the correct size and installed the nutsert, tightened it all up and closed up the shell. Then you can mount the Inspire holder. Took me about 15 minutes to do.
Can I ask where you purchased the holder and nutsert from? I'm gonna do that for sure.
Here is the direct link to the nutsert http://m.summitracing.com/parts/AAF-ALL18548
Inspire 1 holder: Amazon.com: DJI Inspire 1 Part 45 iPad Mobile Device Holder: Computers & Accessories. Or you can find it on eBay as well.
Those links are good that mandalay posted. I actually bartered the nutsert from another member here (Thanks MightyT!), as they come 2 to a pack.
Shop around for the holder but they average $30 - $35.
Remember to get it dead center or it will be crooked when done. Also be absolutely sure you have the wires well out of the way when drilling, when that thing cuts through it will get away from you quick!
Glad someone created this thread. I have a Nexus 7 tablet that collects dust, so it would be nice to use it with the Phantom. Plus, I like the idea of NOT using my phone.
I'm apprehensive about drilling into the transmitter just yet. I'd love to hear more suggestions. I'm going to see if I can find try that sticky grip mount to see if it actually works. A guy at work has one. He says it okay, but has had his phone fall a few times. Then again he uses it in his car, and I'm sure potholes and bad roads are far worse than what I would do to it. If it works out, I'll post back.
I've seen somebody in this forum using a GoPro helmet mount (sticky pad) and camera mount adapter with a tripod tablet holder. So you don't need to drill a hole.

Just so everyone knows, the nutsert install is nice if you have the tool, but the Inspire Holder does not have enough 1/4-20 exposed threads to connect to the nutsert.
So, I had to order this as an upgrade to the Inspire Holder -> DJI Metal Iron CNC Mobile Device Holder for Phantom 3 or Inspire 1 | eBay
Everything works fine now.
This is just an FYI if you plan to go the nutsert route.
