    Hi all mavic pilots.........and soon to be mavic pilots like me. While waiting on mine turning up I made a tablet holder. 8mm steel bar and 7mm steel post. The holder can be used both ways round so the tablet is where your wrists are so you can see the controller or the other way around covering the controller.

    Very nice!! Care to share any construction details? Is the bar actually two pieces? How is the center post attached to the bar? Welded?

    The 8m bar is a single piece bent into the c shape, the 7mm square bar is braced to the c shape with a 4.5mm hole drilled into it at the top. The square bar is angled backwards at the top. All covered in heat shrink plastic. The design was based on this

    WOW! It's incredible that you are flying a Mavic at age 86!

    Exactly the same as a iPhone/ipad (i have tried iPhone 6 plus and iPad mini so far )
    but since it has hdmi you can mirror the go app to hdmi goggles
    nvidia shield K1 £150 from amazon, cinemizers £350 on ebay

    Nvidia Shield K1

    Don't waste your money on bulky 3d printed over priced adapters do it neatly (if you are patient) for "No cost at all"

    Just use a stanley knife to trim 5mm off plastic where phone holder arms swing out do both sides
    works perfectly has a grip like a vice due to the thickness of the shield so it won't fall out, use the usb port on bottom of remote to connect see pics
