Has anyone tried the OEM DJI sunshade? I'm wondering if it is worth the purchase to work with the IPad Mini I have hooked up in the controller. Any feedback would be great!

I've ordered one but haven't received it yet.  I'll try to find the thread and give you some feedback if nobody has already once I try it out.

That would be great! What type of device are you currently using with the Mavic?

got it  last week,  have not used it yet,,  made of a rubber type plastic with Velcro,  fits over antenna's,   looks good,,  not sure how it will work with my Mini 4,  but  I used my credit points from buying the Mavic, so it was not that bad,   If you move the antennas  out,  it pulls it off the screen,   but  I think a little Velcro, and a little added piece and it will be great for sunny conditions, with the Ipad Mini,

You tilt the control in the direction away from the sun. I'm using the Hood with the mini 4 as well. I just position myself to where the sun is on the backside of the hood and I tilt the controller forward.

Wow that's great! Do you find that it actually helps? Like does it make viewing the screen much better or pretty mediocre?

I have not really had much of a chance to use it,  we have had more rain than sun,  I am  hoping it will work  when we get to the summer time,   Might get to take it on a trip south in a few weeks, and will check it out there,,,   its a good buy if you have any credit to spend at DJI

it's really nothing special,   see the Velcro on the top in the center of the hood, ,  I added that,  I have a small black pieces, the same size I cut from a  plastic binder,  that hooks on to that,  and  with a small bend in it,   covers more of the screen,   the big key,  is  to try to put the sun in front of you when your flying,  or where you hold the controller, so its blocked from hitting on the screen,  also,  make sure your screen is set as bright as you can,

Works perfect. Use it with my iPhone 6 Plus. No problems. Does a good job for $19.
