Hello, thank you for your last answer (very long delay to connect the ST16, you indicated a "trouble" WI-FI surrounding, it was indeed the case, bravo Doctor!!) but a question: how to improve the reading of the screen of the ST 16, despite the sunshield, we see strictly nothing if the days are sunny? a setting somewhere possible, or not?

thank you

I made an add on sun shield from thin cardboard. Black poster board would also work. I’ll take photos and post dimensions. You will have to adapt a way to keep the sides in position with Velcro or something similar. Mine stays in place using the Tray to hold it in place. It will fit in the top of the backpack for transport.

I saw a fixed version on another site and knew I didn’t want it where I couldn’t open it and lay it flat. It had to fit in the lid to the backpack when opened flat. This is what I came up with from the size of the lid.

Yours will be much more durable. I don’t want to step on toes either.

No worries, this is how they should be from the factory.

Where do you store this in the backpack?

It does the job, but the backpack and a battery bag are enough to carry as it is.

Here's another home-built idea. The sun shade is fabricated from a cardboard box. The big difference between this design and others mentioned above is the face opening and cheap reading glasses. The face opening effectively blocks out brightness from behind the pilot. It's a lot like FPV goggles except it's easy to look away to watch the drone. The viewing box slips over the stock sun shield. The disadvantage is that it does not fold up. You can Velcor it to the outside of your backpack.
