Greetings. I thought I would post a picture of the setup I came up with for using an Ipad Mini 5 tablet with the Mavic Air 2 Controller.  I had a Skyreat tablet holder purchased at Amazon from when I had a Mavic Mini: Amazon Link
My new Ipad Mini 5 is enclosed in an Otterbox Defender case made for the Ipad Mini 4 (which I recently sold). I drilled a hole in the case (not hard to do) to accommodate the different microphone position of the Ipad Mini 5 compared to the Ipad Mini 4. Actually the Otterbox case seems to fit my Ipad Mini 5 better than it did my Ipad Mini 4. I always had a little bit of a problem with the Ipad Mini 4 in the Otterbox case popping out of the Skyreat holder so what I did was use some E6000 glue at various positions securing the Ipad Mini 5 in its Defender case to the Skyreat holder. The E6000 glue can be removed fairly easily (its kind of like rubber when it sets) if I ever decide to detach the Ipad and case from the Skyreat holder. This particular Skyreat holder was actually made for the Mavic Mini controller but it works great in the Mavic Air 2 controller. Having the Ipad attached to the holder semi-permanently makes a neat stand for the Ipad to seperately use the Ipad detached from the controller.The tilt can be adjusted for best viewing angle. The Skyreat holder is metal so it feels real solid. Have a great day.

Same mount here but with an Android tablet. Drilled extra holes for the strap. The mount is not held very securely by the MA2 RC so I added a small/long screw with a wing nut and some large plastic washers to hold it on.

Hi. Your setup looks real good. I can't remember if the Skyreat holder came with a harness. I have the harness somewhere around my house if it did. I would like to use a harness for extra precaution of not dropping the controller setup. BTW I have changed my name to Magicdroner.

It has worked well...but the strap position did not allow it to hang level (most mounts do not anyway). So I fabricated a hanger for the straps from a 1/2" wide piece of steel bar, bent to position the strap to make it all hang very level. The key was to have the straps attach higher than the center of gravity.
