This could easily be changed at any time, as I may need to tweek it depending on how long this one lasts
I got a DJI Spark a week ago and have been using my nexus 5x with the controller. I have a Nexus 7 tablet I rarely use but it doesnt fit in the spark controller arms. So I modeled up a fake Nexus size block and two posts with a bracket on top that fits the Nexus 7 well....Note, I added 2% to the print in slicing to make up for some shrinkage and it was spot on.
I printed it today and just used it tonight. I had some screws laying around..3/4" #4 (sheet metal or wood screws are fine), with counter sunk heads. Used a counter sink bit to the printed holes to make them fit just right on the top and bottom pieces. 4 screws total. Printed in PETG.

10% and 30%


Printed in PETG (black), 10% infill for the tablet bracket for a little more flex and 30% for the posts and "phone" block that locks on to the controller. Im sure you could get away with changing those some. Supports are only needed for the tablet bracket.


Screw holes

May need to ream holes in posts to help screw together easier and use a countersink bit on printed countersunk holes for better fit.

Anyone input this into Cura yet, and find the correct scaling? I opened it up and its like 1mm across

I found the same issue. I measured my control for the base plate and the width (X) should be about 142mm or so. If you keep the uniform scale locked and upscale to about 25 it will hit 144.75mm. Or just set size for X to be 142mm. Either way I think 2-3mm should be close enough either way for the base place. Not sure how that will effect the mount since I'm only printing the Base plate to attache my own device mounting system.

Great thing! Two ideas for improvements:

  • Merge the two tubes with the phone shape -> reduces the overall amount of printed parts to 2
  • Make at least the phablet holder customizable, using OpenSCAD instead of Onshape. That would help people with other devices.


Nice design. I'm working on printing it now. I lightened the mount and am also working on reducing the weight of the tablet holder and mount angle. I will gladly share the files when I am finished.

Awesome design, thanks. Will be printing it shortly. One thing I would request (if possible) is to have a cut out for the charging port because you can connect a controller with the tablet via OTG cable to have a wired link instead if wireless. So cutout for the charging port would be awesome. It would also allow to leave the tablet in the holder all the time and plug it in for charging without removing it.

Thanks for sharing!
