    I have an iphone6 plus with thin cover that won't fit into an Osmo phone holder. I don't want to have to take the cover off all the time. Has anyone modified or got a suggestion on how to modify the holder to provide about an extra 2-3 mm.

    Ha ha Mazz -might have to resort to duct tape !!!
    - had hoped someone with more of an inventive mind than me would have an idea to modify.
    It's a pity dji make their cradles almost the exact size. I have an Inspire 1 and the cradle takes an iPad Air but not with a cover.
    I just need an extra 2mm and I'd buy the Osmo

    Thanks for the reply John. Could confirm that you've got a cover on your iPhone 6+.
    Did you have to force it in the holder ?
    Maybe I should go back to the shop and try again - Ta

    ya the cover is blue. push the phone into the tabs first, straight on, then move them to the corners if you want like in the pictures.

    its a tight fit, but the holder is made so well its fine.

    Just to complete this thred.
    I bought an Osmo yesterday and just want to confirm that my iPhone 6 plus with case on it does fit the phone holder but only just (it needs to be pushed in) I will probably end up using my wife's iPhone 5 as it feels less bulky and easier to hold the hole unit.
    Thanks "johnmont" you should get commission - I bought the osmo because of your reply!!!!!!:)
