Hello,

I have an ipad air 2 with an otterbox case and an iphone 7 plus with an otterbox case; both defender type cases. I stuggle to find a good sunshade that will hold the device and case. Can you recommend something? thank you.

I'm designing an inexpensive sunshade for an iPad Mini 2. A piece of .040 aluminum backs up the iPad, mounting the assembly to the RC unit. Since aluminum is non-magnetic I forsee no compass problems, but what about any effect/interference on the unit's antenna/signal strength to my airborne P-4 drone? If feedback is positive I will post photos and share with any who may be interested once the project is finalized and mounted. Thanks in advance.

The post in the link is from Sept 2015. I have been using this shade every time I fly (pretty often) since I built it. Looks good as new

I flew today with the Hoodman and an iPad mini 4. Takes just a bit longer to attach and get set up than the DJI Monitor Hood, but provides much better contrast. I didn't use the Hoodman extension, just the lower portion.
