Mine hides 2 instruments so I need to tilt my head to see them properly. I think picking a longer arms would fix it as I could lower the ipad a bit more.June 27, 2018Purchased

When mounted on the co-pilot's yoke in my C182rg, the weight of the i-pad (even when mounted as close to the center line (so as to have the least "arm"), makes a substantial difference in the feel of the controls. I hesitate to fly IFR approaches when the control pressures are very sensitive at slow speeds with this arrangement.May 25, 2018Purchased
2 months agoPerformance1 / 5Ease Of Use1 / 5Would You Recommend?NoRam yoke mount for iPad - 1999 182SDon't like it at all - it clamps onto the yoke fine but the extension part does not reach around far enough for the iPad cradle to get positioned right - I also had to remove the clip that was on the yoke for it to even begin to work and I hate removing parts off of airplanes - my Skylane is a 1999 182SApril 30, 2018Purchased
2 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?YesWorks goodPurchased this combo for my iPad Air2. I normally use a cover/keyboard combination on my iPad all the time. These do NOT work with the RAM product, so I have to take the cover off my iPad each flight. A little annoying but no big deal.
In the Cessna 172's I fly, the claw best attaches from above and then the long arm comes over the yoke and supports the cradle for the iPad. The clips that hold the iPad into the cradle will "push" the power button if used "normal" but rotating the cradle so the release clip is down resolves the problem. I have had no trouble with it staying in place or not holding the iPad.
Good product and easy to install for each flight. I've used it on 2 different C172M aircraft.March 6, 2018Purchased

Great fit and security for the ipad and leaves room to see the panel. I prefer it over the suction cup mounts. Feels like the cockpit is more streamlined.February 5, 2018Purchased
5 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat HolderI have a big 9.7 iPad and this fits great! It's a little tight in my 1961 Cessna 150A but everything is tight in it. I mounted it sideways on the pilot's side of the yoke and it's almost flat like a table top. Only problem is in bright sunlight the screen is hard to see but that is not the holder's fault. Best money I've spent yet.January 20, 2018Purchased
