Good one for your climate. I actually once posted a link (forgot where) for capacitative full fingered gloves.

In order of most used:1: Pgytech CPL. Stayed on the lens for around 80% of my flights
2: 16 Polarpro ND
3: No name landing pad. And only every once in a while. In sandy or dusty conditions. Hand landed mostly.
4: 128 Freewellgear ND
5: 10 000 mah Powerbank

Have a BAG full of stuff. Mostly I wasted my money.
PGYtech leg extenders, used twice.
Propeller gaurds, never even fitted or tried it
Till now, on the same propellers, not even a scratch. (touch wood)
Fancy looking landing lights, NEVER used.
Polarpro 4 filters, and Freewellgear 400 filters, still not used.
Oh, the fairly cheapo backpack I got from XtremeAccessories, gets used always.

Don`t get up tight.

Your reply to my original question sounded like you wanted 32 acres to fly your MA on. I assumed that to be a joke thus I tried to reply with a joke, which clearly did not go down too well with you.

My reply to my perceived understanding of either your joke or sarcasm was to ask President Donald Trump for 32 acres of place to fly your drone unhindered. Seems like either you did not understand my original question or I did not understand your reply.  If I misunderstood I`m sorry for my comment.

Hi M2Wair,
Is there a hoodman sunshade model compatible with the Mavic Air RC?
Thanks much!

The iPad mini 4 with a mavmount and hoodman sunshade fit the RC for the Mavic air no problems. The combination is exceptional even in the harshest of sunlight. will post a pic

IMO, I think the ND filters are a complete necessity. Therefore they fall into a different category than other accessories.  

I think my most important and best functioning accessories are...

1.  5.5" Crystalsky Monitor. Ive been very pleased with having a dedicated monitor for my drone. It has far better picture quality than my phone, and it's not bogged down by all the apps and extra stuff running like my phone. Ive noticed so much lesson signal issues the Crystalsky as well.

2. The Smatree 600 Case. This case is awesome and really makes taking my Mavic Air setup along easy. It's very compact and rugged and will hold 4 batteries, crystalsky monitor, 2 different monitor mounts, 12 ND filters, remote, drone, and memory cards/

These two items have made a big difference.

I'm cool, just didn't understand the context (the place was the accessory I already got) and the repetition of the joke seemed like there was a point you were trying to make that made no sense.

I just don't see the draw for the crystal sky with the phone and tablet I have.  But yeah, a good case is key.

Thank you for your reply.  This is absolutely awesome.

Did you buy it "pre-cut" or did you do the cut-outs yourself?

Thank you.

It looks "bulky" but I assume it is the "Depth" that actually makes it effective.

It looks bulky but is surprisingly light and yes the depth makes it very effective, we've never had an issue using the iPads and sunshades in any weather conditions.

Mostly everything was pre cut. I did have to do a little cutting, as well as adding a piece of foam or two. (the cutting and adding was in order to add the CS to the case and for it to "lock" in.) Very easy mods with a sharp blade and some super glue.

Thank you for the explanation.  Although I don`t currently use one is because quality stuff is not available in South Africa.  However when using my "body" to act as the "shield" it is not very effective if one is trying to follow the drone both visibly and with the RC.
