These just came in from China through ebay, and they have been a great upgrade for me. They cost me less than $5 because it was won through an auction. These also come with washers to adjust the height. I went with the old(stock) bottom piece and the new blue cnc milled knob. Just felt like sharing since I feel like it can benefit others.

PhantomKnobs are also a great (and soft) addition to the remote controller sticks. I have them on all of my DJI remote controllers.

Nice....I was thinking about getting those too, but I went for the cnc finish. DJI needs to make those labels standard on their controllers too. I feel like it looks nicer, and it's a good reminder for when someone new flies the drone.

Hey guys, can anyone tell where to get those aluminum iPad monitor arms to replace those plastic ones on the Phantom 3 controllers?
Here are a few:
You can find others on Amazon and/or eBay if you don't care for those I listed above.

Personally, I don't want DJI to make those "thumb" pads the new standard (unless they can be removed) I'm one of those that "pinches" the sticks with my index finger and thumb. I think leaving it up to the user to add those is a better option as the remote would work for all. OR if they make it a standard, make them removable for those of us that "pinch" :)

I'd really like to see a device holder that would actually hold my ipad mini 2 with the case on it. The case is a little to thick for the top and bottom of the holder to grasp it securely.

Here's what I use . I have a thick case on my mini and a member sent me one . Works great and you can remove it or leave it on . I have several now as I just leave them on . Now this one is to hold a larger pad but look at this https://www.amazon.com/gouduoduo201...821&sr=8-1&keywords=Inspire+holder+extensions
You will have to find the shorter one for just a mini but they do have them . Or e-bay will .

Same piece I have there and I use a Lifeproof case which is just a little over 1/2" thick .
All I know is get a thinner case or get someone with a printer to make you one GB :)
Oh well .

Yeah I use the same type case. I'm thinking of going the 3D route. I'm rough on tablets so downgrading the case probably is wise for me :)
