I started using Droidplanner and Andropilot on my Cell Phone , a AWESOME Samsung Note II ... This is what I did with it to have it a glance away ...

AndroPilot - Scarf

I got this mount on E-Bay ... Cost me $4.99 , At least the Rand Dollar then was not too bad ... so cheap really ..
Car Mount - Ebay - SCARF

Car Mount - Samsung

The Bending part I then broke by wiggling it back and forth till it broke close to the top part I wanted to use ...It is a Aluminium cable , so no real effort . Drilled the left over part out from the top through the plastic .

Scarf Turnigy 9x


Then I got a big screw , opened up the Turnigy 9X and drilled a hole through and mounted it with the big screw. The mounting is high enough to still allow easy access to all switches and most importantly the 6 way Rotary switch to set modes ...

What is nice is that I can remove all parts till only the Stub is left ...

Scarf - Andropilot - Mounting

Scarf - Droidplanner - Mounting

I now need to get a shorter USB cable .....

Got to love these cheap TX Radio's , you don’t really care to drill holes in them  , and in the Case of the 9X with the FrSky TX , a real gem of a Radio ...
