    I got one of these with my Black Pearl FPV monitor for use with my P2. First of all its a fiddly assembly process which is ok but the real annoyance is the useless thumbscrew they include to attach the monitor to the bracket. If you tighten it as much as you can by hand it still flops around in a useless fashion. Have been advised to pack it with a couple of washers. Anyone else had experience with this DJI bracket ?

    I have one of those, it's not actually a DJI product just a mass-produced design used on a lot of transmitters. If the thumbscrew you got matches the one in that pic, then it's slightly different than the one that came with mine (which is also sub-par).

    I'm going to be trying out one of these options along with a few washers if necessary:

    Yeah as soon as I get around to taking measurements on my aftermarket transmitter to make sure that one will fit, I plan to order it as well. I'm also looking at getting the black pearl monitor for Tx mounting, the current 8" monitor I have is a bit bulky for that with the external receiver and cabling that requires.
