Does the spark have a gimble clip. I've seen some 3D printed ones appearing online. If it doesn't have a clip what stops it falling downwards when not in use?

The gimble/camera on the Spark is much smaller than the Mavic and seems to be seated more within the body of the drone.

We would recommend that you keep it in its case when being transported.

But you provide a bag (fly more kit)  that the case doesnt fit in?

The drone (Spark) comes in a hard molded Styrofoam case, which is small enough for transporting

But does the hard molded Styrofoam case fit in the bag that comes with the Fly More bundle?

Not sure, because I just use the bag with the Fly More bundle and it seems to offer enough protection.

Wow, that looks great!  $20, I'll strongly consider it.  I plan on doing a lot of snowmobiling with the Spark in the winter and I think this is another added piece of security, even inside a foam case.  

Anyone make a mount/adapter for an iPad Pro?  I can fly with it on a shelf or on my lap, but not mobile...it's freaking huge, but would like to find another solution if possible.

Ya, my iPad Pro is about a foot across...9" high, I think...With Otter Box.  Guessing it won't work with mine as of yet...

It will hold any tablet 9.0-10.9" in size including:

Ipad Air (all versions)
Ipad Pro (9.7",and 10.5" only)
Google Nexus 9
Samsung Tab 9.7.

I have purchase this http://amzn.to/2tqqEZm to keep scratches off the camera and 3d sensor because I can imagine sand or dirt getting in the bag and scratching it up

Yeah...not keen on the idea of sticking a $5 piece of plastic over my lens & sensor.  Or sticking anything on it for that matter.
