    When I discovered my BLU Studio X Plus d770u phone would not work as a screen for my Mavic as it had for my P3S I started looking for an inexpensive screen for the Mavic. It was looking more and more like the Nexus 7 II would be the way to go but it did not fit nicely in the controller.
    I found 3D printable tablet adapters on-line but I don't have a 3D printer and my colleague who is happy to print things for me couldn't print as wide as the tablet holders needed to be.
    My solution: Find a way to use my spare Phantom tablet holder on the Mavic by creating a mounting platform that approximates a regular phone in the Mavic RC.
    After a little time in my workshop I came up with this:

    I did need to drill a hole through the mount to make it nice and secure. In fact, that's the only fastener through the wood. The "front" threaded mount just fits snugly through a hole in the wood base.

    The used Nexus I found on eBay arrives tomorrow. I think I'm going to like this setup.

    Yup, that's the answer I needed :) I can make that :)
    Have you had any problems with it sliding at all or do you have some rubber glued to it?
