Default Tactic (and Traxxas) Transmitter Camera Mounts - Who else?

Luxury RC makes them in a few colors, for smartphones and GoPros - pretty nice, available at Amazon:

And I know it was mentioned before somewhere, but Traxxas has one for their own TQi transmitters - so, when are the 3D printing gurus gonna make them for other brands, FlySky perhaps?

I bought a cheap cellphone holder magnet for cars.
Glued it on top of my Radiolink RC4GS. Now I just put my cellphone on it and I can take pictures and videos while crawling.

I use a $1 clamp with a 1/4 20 bolt through it to hold a camera mount.

Anyone with one of these know if it will fit an iPhone 8+ with a slim case?

I have my Pixel XL first generation with a medium thickness case mounted in mine, works fine... it's adjustable.

I'm looking around to see if I can find any of these models so I can make my own version to 3D print, anyone know of any free sources?

EDIT: I found one for the Spektrum DX3 and DX4 https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1700124

I've been meaning to try designing one and having my friend print it out myself. I've now got a gimbal that I use with my GoPro. So I need a way to mount the stick/gimbal. My hands get tired holding both the gimbal stick and transmitter in one hand. I'm sure my driving suffers from it too.

I noticed your footage has been really stable lately, I figure you must have got a Gimbal. If you dont mind me asking what kind did you get?

I have a Hohem iSteady Pro 3-axis gimbal.

I actually have this attached to a selfie stick, and then hold the selfie stick + transmitter in the same hand. Like I said, my hand gets tired, and my driving suffers.

I've had ideas of what I want to do, but I've just been too busy to get around to it.

This works really well for me because I have my GoPro mounted on a mini tripod and I can run the camera from my phone (start/stop video/check position) all while still controlling my rig. When I'm done I just pickup my tripod and move to the next spot.
