One significant design flaw with the Sky Controller 3 is the inability to hold a large cased smartphone. As most of us protect our phones with a case, this is an annoying oversight which I sought to redress. My design mantra is Keep It Simple, and what better product to use than the Bodger’s Best Friend: Sugru (Sugru web site) sold by all the usual suspects. I worked out where the phone needed to sit in the SC3, stuck a bit of camera tape (grippy, sticks well and easily removed if required) to the location, moulded the Sugru into a suitable shape and stuck it to the tape. Carefully I placed the phone into the SC3 and used it to create a small rebate. I removed the phone, left the assembly to cure fully for a few hours. It works a treat and can be removed easily if needed.

Keep It Simple 👍🏻

Looks good, and the geometry appears to avoid bending the sliding mechanism. I’ve got a friend with a 3D printer, shall give it a go thanks.
