Good value for iPad kneeboard

Recommended

Easy to use but holding strap for iPad should be replaced with rubber sling-overs instead of elastic bands. In time I can see them becoming weak.

Needs Improvement

Not Recommended

Great idea with the adjustable angle of the base. Securely fastened to the holder. The major issue I see is that the straps for the IPad Mini version cover up the ambient light sensor in the face of the Ipad. This causes the screen to want to DIM all the way down due to it thinking it is in a dark environment. Our company provides training services for the defense industry and we will not be buying these because of that issue.

Perfect Kneeboard

Recommended

This is a great kneeboard for a helicopter pilot. This kneeboard is compact enough to fit in any size aircraft. Fits my Samsung Tab A8 tablet well. Good value and a low price. So far durability has been great.

Great BUT.....

Recommended

As it looks it's a great product.
I've had it for about a year now a has been really useful and great. Fits around your leg great a holds your iPad in place even when dropped.

The only problem is that it does NOT last too long.
The Velcro strap comes apart after 2-3 months and after a year is pretty much worthless.
The other MAIN concern is the straps that hold the iPad in place.
When you first get it, it is great. You can drop the case and the iPad will be perfectly fine. After about a few month, be sure as heck you don't drop it. The straps are so worthless now, it barley hold the iPad while flying.
I cracked the Corner of my iPad when dropped because the straps didn't hold it and it fell out.
Overall, great product, just doesn't last that long.

Not the zippered flight desk expected, but quite good, and not as cumbersome.

Recommended

Please research a zippered case for the iPad mini. I have much enjoyed my zippered flight desk for the iPad, and it has protected it from drops and damage on many occasions both inside the plane and in my office. The kneeboard is light and will work for now, but will be replaced as soon as I find a flight desk for it.

Quality knee board, well laid out and comfortable. No complaints!

Recommended

Later versions might have a bit of foam on the 'leg' side to allow it to conform to the shape of the thigh, and hold position better.

This kneeboard is great for carrying the ipad mini

Recommended

I fly in a Cessna 172 and the kneeboard doesn't work that well because the wheel drags across it, I am 5'8 so maybe someone taller or using a stick wouldn't have that problem, it nicely holds the ipad, BadElf Pro, plug-in charger, and a 5 X 8 legal pad. I also like how the ipad can set up at an angle. I find the kneeboard is nice to carry the ipad mini wherever I go.

what is the difference between this item and the "Original iPad Bi-fold Kneeboard 4999A"? They look identical but have different descriptions...

Original iPad Bi-fold Kneeboard
BEST ANSWER: The original iPad Bi-fold kneeboard is for iPad models 1-4. The other kneeboard will fit the iPad mini's and the iPad air1/2.
Hi, I was wondering if an iPad 4 would be able to fit on the iPad Air option since they have the same screen size?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, the iPad 4 is just a little too wide. The screen is similar, but the case is larger around the screen.
Will an iPad mini 4 in a life proof case fit in this kneeboard?
