Description

I use EZ-GUI on my Xperia Z3 and a bluetooth connection to keep track of the data of my quadrocopter while in flight, tuning PIDs and so on. As you don't have a free hand while controlling the radio, I made this little helper to mount the smartphone to the radio. The angle of the phone can be adjusted for comfortable viewing.

Materials and methods

- the printed parts (print lying on the side; the base needs full support)
- two rubber bands
- a M3x45mm screw and a nut
- The edge pieces (part "3") are needed twice but are not mandatory. They make mounting and removing the phone a bit easier, but as you can see, as I made the pictures, I was still printing them and it works fine also without them.

You can use two of the third pieces to put them on the ends of the rubber bands and clip them to the edges of your cell phone. This is where you can se the rubber bands crossing over the edges of the phone on the photo.
