Finally a steady grip handle for the Mavic pro
Since Mavic’s launching, I’ve always thought that Mavic as well as being an excellent portable machine for aerial image recording could also be an excellent video system with stabilization.
The handle is very strong and easy to set up. It’s ready to place the phone / tablet stand
Comfortable grip

This is a collage (remix) of two main items ( please see the remix sources files)
I had the idea to put them together with the purpose of create a grid handle for my magic pro

Phone grip not included
ENJOY and share!

Hello. Could you please share the CAD file?

There is no .cad file, sorry!
I used tinkercad to finalise the design, the allowed export types are .obj and .stl

Hope this helps

Thanks for the reply.

Just wondering do the arms close enough? and im guessing that tab should catch the arm nicely to help lock it in. Thanks and nice design!

Hi @wincal06
The arms close enough but they doesn't close 100% ( plastic thickness to make it more resistant, the first prototype was more fragile ) , I will upload a photo that could help you to have a visualisation. You are guessing right, tabs have exactly the function to catch the arm nicely to lock and secure the mavic pro

1 more question for you if don't mind... how is the balance with this mount?

Last week-end I used the grip to record part of the shots of a commercial I’m working on… and actually I am pretty happy and impressed with the result (I’m preparing a video where I can show you guys more in detail what the improvements are using this grip):

-Super stable
-well-balanced in my opinion

One Constraint:
With this version you can not switch on/off the mavic when the grip is clipped… so you need to unclip the grip before switching the Mavic on / off

I really encourage you guys print it and test it!! I added more photos in order to give you a complete overview

Awesome, thanks! I can't wait for my printer to ship, I have such a list to print haha. I'm probably going to remix this bad boy and add that on/off button hole.

That will be really cool, let us know if you make this update!

Awesome, you definitely caught my drift haha. Thanks! I had purchased the Mavicam online and decided I wanted make a better version of it and this just might do it.

I am guessing what he meant is the tabs should be wider - preferably arm-wide with tips at ends pointing upwards a bit. A bit like U shape instead of L shape. Nice design nonetheless

Hi @blackamo: The model have holes that clips on the batterie and it is reinforced with the tabs (actually are based on “mavicam”), I’m not convinced that this “preferably arm-wide with tips at ends pointing upwards a bit” will add stability… but thanks for the feedback I really appreciate it!
