This is an awesome idea! Is there any way you could show me how this thing attaches to the Mavic? I would love to use this and mount my Mavic on my Steadycam to get even smoother handheld imagery. I also would love to be able to attach my Phone or to attach a Phone Mount to this.

Very nice! I like you you built in a spot for a camera mount (I have that exact thing sitting at home already!) I've been looking into creating a handle to hand launch this while i'll be traveling, and often from a boat. And i've also been wanting to use the mavic for the 4k camera in places where flying is generally frowned upon (re. illegal). Combing them both into a single solution will be so good! Consider me inspiried! Hopefully i'll have some remixes of this up in the near future!

As wacky as it sounds, this makes for a great remote camera setup. We utilized a stationary mavic to capture some events from over 1.8 miles away perched up high on a ledge. It gives the mavic a spy persona, especially with the ability to zoom in on subjects. With the propellers not in motion, the battery life is significantly increased and one could get up to an hour and a half of remote viewing with capability of a vertical axis scrolling. In extreme cases to prevent equipment capture, one could fly away with the tripod attached as long as it wasn't over 1/4th (2.3) lbs of the mavic's lifting capacity.

Awesome bro.. Good job

But why? What is the use case?

You can use the mav as a handheld cam with this plate.. Just need a few cheap parts..
