I tried a couple of mounts for the Mavic and honestly didn't like them. I designed one on my CAD for my 3D printer and it works great. It attaches to the transmitter solid and in the perfect position for me to fly and operate the monitor. It is very light weight,a couple of onces. The only thing is it is not adjustable, it only fits the Crystalsky 7.85 monitor to the Mavic transmitter. The best part is, it completely comes off the transmitter when not in use, and its in a great location for operating all controlls. If anyone is interested let me know,

OK, we are asking $25.00 to cover the cost of shipping and printing material. If this thing catches on, I will have to come up a little, around $35.00. If you send a payment to my PayPal account, ill ship one out to you the same day.
My e-mail linked to PayPal is sgmmck@yahoo.com I would also like some feed back after you try it out for a while.

I just learned what the crystal sky monitor is! Man this could get expensive but i have hit too many little branches and ruined props and could lead to disaster. I was going to get goggles as a cure but then i will be paranoid what is happening around me.....man...why did i get into buying a mavic pro? ;)

just ordered another MM with a CS base. I'm going to machine a cylinder a bit larger than the ballhead neck, remove the lock washer, drop the lanyard tab on and screw the cylinder down. then on top of the cylinder the CS mount will screw on with the lock washer, and I have some M5x12 thumbscrews with an extended shank coming to mount the CS. use with a straight USB-C cable and I should have a baseplate that fits into the RC properly, a ballhead that locks down properly, a lanyard mount that's in the right place to balance the rig properly, a reasonable compromise on a QD mount for the CS, and a detachable, replaceable cable.

very similar concept, yes.

thank you, that's just given me another good idea re photography bracketry. I may be able to do a proper dovetailed QD yet.
