I was getting fed up of my Osmo chewing through my phone battery leaving me with no communication on shoots. Therefore, I decided to design these mounting brackets so I could make use of the longer lasting iPad battery and get a better screen in the process. The iPad doesn't weigh the camera down too much.
These brackets have slots for the existing phone mounts to click into, then the spring-loaded arm can extend to allow the brackets to clip around the corners of the iPad Mini. As long as your spring isn't worn, your iPad will be locked in place nice and tight.
I've printed this in just about every material you can think of, including PolyFlex, PolyWood, PolyMax, CF Bronzefill and many different PLAs, but found ProtoPasta Matte Fiber HTPLA my favorite for finish, weight and strength. PolyWood comes out awesome if you sand it and a combo of any colour with a layer of Matte Fiber on top looks wicked if you can remember to swap the filament on the layer where the DJI logo sides start to print.
In the end I kinda stuck with 0.2mm, 3 shells, 3 top and 3 bottom layers, 30% infill and printed with DJI logo facing up with supports enabled. This way the iPad covers any rough spots from the support and it allows you to do the two-tone thing with the logo (see pics)
