Smartphone as FPV

I have a Turnigy 9x to control my quadrotor and would like to use my Samsung S5 as a FPV. Where can I find a kind of support or connectors that I can use to fix my cell phone to my RC and have hands free to only control my RC. I have seen some guys using gadgets that clip the cell phone to RC but I could not find where to buy one.

Bad idea, but hobby king, banggood and many other Chinese retailers will have something.

Just out of curiosity, why is it a bad idea? Unreliable? High latency or something?

Thanks @beerwiser for the answer. The point is that I already use my S5 as GCS, connected to my wireless telemetry system. But while using RC to control my drone, I its difficult to watch the S5 at same time if it is not in front of me. So, any holder gadget to put it together with RC will be fine to me. I will check your tips.

if you need a support to mount the smartphone on your controller maybe you can use this

Does one really need easycap, why can one not directly connect the micro usb of your android to the VRX making a cable ?
