    Ok the dji transmitter is wobbly with anything bigger than phone on it. Also even the inspire one is only partially metal so you still have to be careful. My fix finally was I had for my old go pro a suction mount holder so mounted it to the back of my 10.5 samsung tablet then put one of their sticky mounts on the transmitter after removing the plastic one. Works like a charm and can put sun shade on it. Easy to remove and put in case.

    You can purchase an inspire mobile device holder and place it upon the P3 controller. It helps so much. 30 bucks shipped on ebay.

    For sure but but with a big tablet this way really holds it steady and can adjust more. Just personal preference though.

    Off hand can't remember. I had the suction mount for the gopro which I don't use anymore really. So if I did decide to use on gopro again it'd be nothing to swap it out. I use to mount it on my motorcycle that way on the tank.

    Got the inspire mount in and installed, a much more stable solution, no more wobble.

    Great idea, I am expecting my Phantom 3 next week and checking to see which mobile device unit to use. I have the ipad air and also the kindle fire. hopefully I can use one of those, or I may check out the ipad mini, thanks.

    Yes, without any sort of cover on the ipad. I use a slim rubber protector and I can get it in there but it's tight, but without, yes.
