|What is the MavMount™?
The MavMount™ is a complete system that allows for the DJI MAVIC drone to easily use a IPad, Ipad mini, Ipad Air, Nvidia Shield tablet, or any compatible tablet with the DJI Mavic drone.
Who made the MavMount™?
The MavMount™ was designed by a professional drone pilot who flies larger drones like the inspire 2 for movies and television, and wanted the same ability to use a larger screen on his Mavic, Spark, and AIR.
Why should I use an ipad/Nvidia Shield/tablet/iPad air?A cell phone is woefully small for composing a shot, getting exposure right, and really creating an amazing image or cinematic video. With a larger tablet you can see the picture much better, as well as use common light shielding accessories like a Hoodman sun shield. The Mavic is a compact unit, and DJI has done a great job of making a compact unit if that is the final/only use of the unit. But if you like to view a full sized video feed like the Phantom 1/2/3/4, and Inspire 1 series, you’ll want to upgrade your display for the Mavic with a MavMount.
Who is this for?
Anyone who wants a larger/ upgraded display, wants to use a hood for full cinematic control over exposure, professionals that must travel light, and Inspire/Phantom pilots who have grown accustomed to the advantages of a full sized tablet on other DJI drone models.
Why is it good to move the Ipad above the controller rather than below the controller?
Having a your telemetry display and FPV view below the controller is a lot like having your cars dashboard below the steering wheel. It is not intuitive, when the action is above and in front of you. Having the ‘dashboard’ in front of you is safer, and easier. Not to mention easier to read when it’s bigger! Another reason is correct balance. An unbalanced controller causes fatigue in the arms, and hands, which effects your fingers… and flying!
Here’s a video on that topic:
Can I use the ipad and DJI GO app from my Phantom 1/2/3/4 or Inspire 1 with the Mavic and this product?
Will my controller sit upright with the MavMount™ as pictured?
I can’t see the information on the small controller screen.. Is that bad?
If you absolutely want to see the secondary redundant LCD display, you can use the MavMount™ in Dual Screen Mode… but the answer is no, you don;t need to see the redundant screen on the controller. The iPad or tablet replaces all of that information display on an easier, safer display. The information displayed on the controller is for someone who has chosen to fly with no display. It’s absolutely redundant when you use a display. A tablet shows all of the information from the controller and far more. It is the safer way to fly.
How Long does US shipping take?
If you need the Mavmount™ by a certain deadline, please order with plenty of time for it to arrive, we are not responsible for shipping delays.
How Long does International shipping take?
We ship via USPS 1st Class International, and USPS estimates it should only take 7-21 business days to most destinations. Most shipment do arrive in a timely fashion, however occasionally we see a package take up to one month or more to reach its destination. We obviously can’t control these delays and unfortunately can’t effect them in any way.
If you have a tracking number, you may check with customs or your local post office to make sure there have not been any delivery attempts or problems in import. This is something you’ll want to do if there’s a delay and is often the issue with a delayed package and can help immediately.
Unfortunately we do not have access to the inner working of your countries postal service or customs department, so we can’t tell you why something is delayed. We use the same tracking you do, and we’ve learned that all countries vary in their level of tracking abilities and what they report back to USPS.

Dear MavMount creator:
I bought MavMount 2 over this holiday season (along with some extra device brackets).
Absolutely first rate product. Reasonable pricing and excellent service. Thanks.
Best wishes (for us all) for the New Year,
EB Salt Lake City
Just wanted to comment on the Mavmount 2.0, “Well Done!” The best controller mount ever. I didn’t think flying the spark could be any more fun, but your mount makes it even more enjoyable. Thanks!!!!
Just to say many thanks for my mavmount , tablet holder and lanyard , first class kit over the moon with it all .Ordered the item on the 9th March ,and was with me in the UK on the 17th .Keep up the good work .Best Regards John .
Your product is great! I initially had a mount made by PGY tech ( I own other products from that company that are also great). I hated it, it wobbled from left to right. I do a lot of research when I get a product and seeing all the positive reviews of the Mavmount really sold me on the product even though the exchange rate from U.S. money to Canadian money is not so great. Thank you!
Got my new plate today. I really admire a company who takes the time and makes the effort to create a true quality product. Thank you.
Received my order today.Thank you.Very pleased with the build quality of the mount.It is pleasing someone has pride in his work.
Just a quick email to let you know that the MavMount I ordered from you arrived safely.
I have to say that when I placed my order with you I also placed an order with a company in the UK just 45 miles from me and your order arrived at my door before theirs did. Superb service and the MavMount is also yet another super product. I looked at a few ways to mount an ipad into the remote and I definitely made the right choice. Its a very well worked out product with fantastic build quality.
Many thanks for a great service.

“Just a quick email to say the mavmount arrived safely well within your estimate and what a sturdy quality piece of kit. Thank you and will readily recommend to others in Europe.”
I could never go back to the phone setup. And it\’s really cool you use your product to do professional work. Best of luck.
Recevied my order today. Thanks for shipping so quickly
“Thanks to you sir for a great product….!! I know a lot of drone owners will appreciate the functionality and longevity! I for one am very happy with my purchase! Thanks again!”
Thanks for the quick turn around and for getting the Mavmount to me. What a super well made product. Love it!!
Thanks for getting back to me. I bought one because without a doubt, hands down, you guys have the finest mount on the planet. I made the mistake of purchasing one of those cheap pieces of junk. The box it came in was better than the mount. I threw it away.
“Yippee, last week ordered, this week received …to good old Germany! Simply great! This brilliant fitting Mavic adapter, this excellent quality of the whole system, including MavLock, lanyard and the sun hood fort he Ipad. Many thanks for this innovative system! …wish you great success on this path of quality products & service. Looking forward to see the new gimmicks coming up :-))”
Now I would go out and try it except there’s a VERY strong wind blowing outside so it’s going to have to wait a little longer.
Once again, thank you for a great product.
I just wanted to let you know I received my Mavmount. It is exactly what I wanted and extremely well built. I love the color, smoothness, ease of use. Thanks for making a great product.
The package arrived today. I’d like to thank you for your help with my orders. Everything was there and it is some high quality gear. The mount fits so perfectly in the controller, the lanyard is one of the nicer lanyards I’ve seen. And the hoodman gear is so much better in person than what the images portray.
So thanks once again!
“I’ve said it on this forum and the Facebook page as well, the MavMount rocks. Solid construction, adjustable and just plain great!” – Kevin Cummings
I had a single concern on my delivery. It seems that UPS might have handled the package a little to aggressively and there was a tiny chip on the Clamp itself. Sent a quick descriptive email along with a photo to Mav Mount support and, without as much as a 5 minute delay they offered me a Tracking number and assured me that a replacement was on its way. Sure enough days later I have the replacement. That’s Customer Service! DO Not look elsewhere–Mav Mount is what you want!- Erick Bruce
Received this morning! All I can say is, wow! Much, much better than I had expected tbh! Extremely Happy!
I will post a quick review over on the RCGroups Mavic Owners thread as soon as I can (cannot see one on there yet). Hopefully that will get you a few more sales 😉
Just a note to thank you for the great service. Received the order below yesterday…..that is less than 48 hours from ordering which is pretty awesome. Also the Mavmount is a great tool with the DJI Mavic Pro that I also received yesterday (was like Christmas Day!!). I use the Mavmount with the Apple iPad Pro 12.9″ and a Aerial Drone Accessories Master Sunshade. Works perfectly. Being 65 years old, I need a “drive-in” screen….ha. Your Mavmount is first class and do not have to worry about it breaking. Best of all…. it is made in the USA!!

“Right on man! Both your Mavmount and the Hoodman are quality products indeed! Without both, it was pretty much impossible for me to use the iPad Air with any amount of sunlight. Total game changers!”
“Hi Bill, just to let you know the mav mount arrived safely to Northern Ireland today. Very happy with it and pleased with the blue. Thanks again great quality product”.
“hi Al here I just received the mav mount off you I just wanted to say thanks heaps and nice product quick post.. THANKS AGAIN..
– Alan Standfield”
Just received the adapter and wanted to say thanks for sending that out. The MavMount and the adapter work great together and are awesome products!
Absolutely awesome product!!!
Received today, perfect! Just what I wanted, plus I can’t believe how quickly it arrived.
The mount, lock and lanyard arrived Saturday in perfect condition. The new Ipad fits quite well in the mount you sent.
I wanted to thank you again for your response to the last-minute gymnastics.
A real pleasure to do business with you.
