I-pad kneeboard

Recommended

It's the simplest and cheapest example I've seen. There is room for two improvements. (1) The tiny corner straps are not big enough to permit the use of the relatively thin protective case I carry my I-pad in, necessitating "going naked." This endangers my I-pad in the cluttered cabin of the airplane. I reduce this by carrying the I-pad face-down, giving a little bit of protection while in the kneeboard. I would like to see the corner straps lengthened and strengthened, allowing the continuous use of the protective case. (2) The stretch knee-strap with velcro works fine on the leg. However, if the female (soft) portion of the strap were lengthened, the kneeboard would fit fine on most yokes, permitting the wonderful instrument backup (AHRS) of ForeFlight to be used directly in front of the pilot, instead of having to look at one's leg to fly in IMC. P.S. HOW CAN ONE ATTEST TO RELIABILITY OF SOMETHING BRAND NEW???

IPad kneeboard holder

Recommended

Simple, easy to use, works great. The ability to rotate came in handy on its first use. Inexpensive, worth the money.

Overall good product

Recommended

For what you'll pay, this is as simple as any product needs to be. Which is what is was looking for. All I needed was a simple, easy, cheep option to mounting my iPad down on my flights and this kneeboard was it. Doesn't get in the way, and not excessively bulky or heavy. Good product.

What you see is what you get

Recommended

Works as advertised. Rotate feature is sub-par. No locking detent. Durability suspect. Did manage to fit my Otter Box sleeve inside the straps (barely).

simple and performs its purpose

Recommended

Used it with Ipad Air 2. Fits well and holds it in place. Rotation feature works well. Seems durable if taken care of. Good for the price.

Good for an uncovered ipad

Recommended

This is made to fit an iPad Mini in it nicely. The challenge I found was that I keep my iPad in a case to protect it and this is just too tight (for disclosure the case is an Otterbox so quite hefty). If I want to take the iPad out of the case, this would work great, but then I put the iPad at risk. I can pull the straps to get the iPad and case in there, but it is a bit of a struggle.

Simple and it works.

Recommended

Nothing fancy, but it works just fine. The only thing I'd like to see is better cooling, as the nylon & cardboard stiffener backplate act as an insulator. Still, it's much better than an enclosing leather case.

Poor quality

Not Recommended

Difficult to strap on. Flops around on your leg as the straps are elastic. Corner straps cover over the camera, the on/off switch and the rotate switch.
Not even worth 25 bucks.
