Topbest visor for Phantom 4

I recently purchased a Topbest sun visor for my iPad (it will work with any tablet less than 9.7") to use my Phantom 4 controller. These visors are a must have, I previously wrote about the 5 items that I considered must have accessories and this is probably second only to extra batteries. When you are outside on a bright and sunny day it is really hard to see the iPad or iPhone screen, this visor helps tremendously with that. There is still some glare on the screen but it increases the visibility to at least 75%. You can still adjust your monitor holder to position it so the visor is shading your screen and sometimes you will need to do that depending where the sun is shining at in relation to where you are standing.



About the Visor:
It is made of a faux leather material and honestly I don't have much faith it will hold up very long in terms of looks, this cheap material will probably fade and start to show the black "rubber-like" material below the white coating. I didn't buy it for the looks so I don't consider it a huge issue. The visor has rubber suction cups where the iPad (tablet) goes and it really helps keep the iPad secure, you could literally flip it in the air and the iPad would not come detached from the visor, it works well.

There are velcro attachments on each side of the visor that connect to the base of the visor to keep the sides from flapping open while using. This visor has a really nice design and honestly I do not have any complaints about it. It folds up neatly for tucking in my bag when I traveling from location to location and fits perfectly on the Phantom 4 controller when using.

There are cutouts for running your Lightning cable through the side of the visor so you can connect it to the Phantom 4 controller. I also did not have any issue with raising the antennas on the back of remote controller, in other words the controller functions as it should when using this visor.

I don't consider this a negative because it is not an issue for me; but, it does make the controller feel more heavy — make that more top heavy. While it only weighs about 6 ounces, you can feel the difference when using it on the controller.

I purchased this visor when it was on sale for $9.99 but they are back to the normal price of $17.99 on Amazon; http://amzn.to/1TlqTa5.

Cooler Master MasterCase 5 Pro

The MasterCase 5 Pro is a Free Form modular system that allows you to easily upgrade any hardware component inside your PC case. What Cooler Master defines as Free Form;

“Free Form enables you to vertically adjust or entirely remove drive cages via an intuitive clip-and-click panel, opening unparalleled flexibility to integrate replacement accessories like fans, water cooling reservoirs or even extra-long graphics cards.”
When choosing a case I wanted something that not only looked great but was also a beast in terms of being able to add more hardware to it as I built my gaming PC. Basically I wanted to future proof it in terms of having enough room on the inside for dual video cards, multiple hard-drives, water cooling options for when I overclock my machine, and something that was easy to manage. The MasterCase 5 Pro was that case! Look at the design of it, the black on it is sort of a matte black which gives it an even more bad ass look to it. The thing looks like the frigging Batmo…

FIVE must have accessories you should purchase with your Phantom 4

Extra battery - I’d recommend two extra batteries but they are expensive so at the minimum at least get one extra battery. The battery last about 25+ minutes or so, depending on what you are doing with your Phantom 4. If you are in Sports mode, flying fast, then the battery will drain quicker or at least it seems that way to me! I currently have three batteries and I am seriously thinking about adding a fourth to my arsenal.Bigger capacity MicroSD card - The Phantom 4 comes with a 16GB memory card which is just not enough storage capacity to be useful for most video shoots, especially if shooting in 4K. I’d opt for at least 64GB. Make sure it is 4K Ultra HD ready, faster write speeds are a bonus too! Currently I have two 64GB cards plus the 16GB card that came with the Phantom 4. I use the 16GB card for still images and the bigger cards for video.Phantom 4 Propellers - If you are new to unmanned ariels / drones then you might not have heard but accidents happen, often.

ProCraft Cases backpack for Phantom 4

I recently purchased a ProCraft Cases backpack to use with my Phantom 4 and I wanted to give a brief overview of the product; as well as some of my initial opinions. The most important aspect of this bag is that the Phantom 4 does indeed fit, this bag was designed for the Phantom 3 initially. That is one of the biggest problems with the Phantom 4 just launching, sellers are trying to market their products made for the Phantom 3 as being for the Phantom 4. Some things do work well, like ND filters, but other accessories might not work with the Phantom 4 being a bit different in design from the Phantom 3. So as I purchase these items I will probably do short demo videos and write-up reviews on the products as I get them. The outside of the ProCraft Cases backpack is made of a vinyl material that feels very well made. It has 2 straps that allow you to wear this over the shoulders — there is also a handle on top of the bag if you prefer to carry it. There are 6 pockets (including the pouc…
