This guy came up with a simple, yet clever, solution for the Mavic controller.



Though the lanyard does obstruct your view of the screen a little, the benefits far outweight the faults.

I guess he would prefer a $100 option that functions just the same but looks more OEM. I like the idea and it is cheap enough......

Is a lanyard necessary for something so light?  Or is this for use when you want to light up a smoke or crack a can of beer (don't drink and drone!)

Personally, if I have the Mavic remote in hand with either my $900 Smartphone attached or an even more expensive tablet attached, why wouldn't you want a lanyard for that extra protection? I see a ton of hobbyists using lanyards for convenience and protection of their investment.

Why not just tether a lanyard around one (or both arms so when it falls it will pull them together) of the arms that fold out? Cost you even less.

As long as it balances alright, I suppose it could work? But these two options listed are literally under the $5-$10 mark. Cheap insurance for what we paid for these things.

I was thinking more for just safety, to save it from a drop.

The only thing I could see being an issue with attaching a lanyard to the arm of the remote is if you drop it and the force pulls the arms apart and your phone or tablet fall out? Guess someone will have to be a guinea pig and report back.

it's not so light once you add a larger tablet...but would work for that as well

Lol.
a string attached to each arm is safer. @FrequentFlyer has the idea. Cheap 2 clip tether at each arm.
The problem with this design is that there will be a 'probability' of the ipad getting smashed. If the lanyard is connected around his neck and the controller is pulled away (can happen), the 'metal lanyard piece' will act like a hook and assist in detaching the ipad. If s/he frequently lets go of the controller, then the chances of the ipad slipping off will also increase.

Nah.. it actually pulls the arms together with the smaller devices like IPhone 7, S7 Edge etc. With lanyard attached to the arms, the controller falls antenna side down if you know what I mean.
It may be a different story with the ipads as they are weighted different.
