I have a simpler kneeboard, but missed some of the storage features for a charge cord and to store my iPhone, which I use as a back up to the iPad mini 4.February 7, 2017Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5It worksDoes the job and protect my iPadSeptember 17, 2016Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value4 / 5Well made productI've only used this product once so far, so it is difficult to judge how well it'll hold up over time, but build construction seems good. The knee-board does come with a pouch to carry it with, and it'll fit in the pouch with the iPad installed. The iPad attaches securely using the clips, and the device can swivel to landscape mode while mounted. As others have mentioned, there isn't a good way to fold up the knee-board with the iPad mounted on it. It's bulky, and even though it does fit in the provided pouch, it isn't super simple to put in and take out. I intend to pretty much leave my iPad on the knee-board permanently because it seems like it'd be a pain to attach and detach it for every flight. Overall I'm happy with the product. Despite my niggles with the knee-board when not flying, it performs well while flying which is the most important part.August 28, 2016Durability4 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5A Perfect iPad Mini KneeboardThis kneeboard is more like a compact Swiss army knife. I fly as part of an aircrew in Civil Air Patrol, so needed something that would not only secure my iPad Mini during flights, but would also serve as a compact "office", offering me a place to take important notes during missions. This kneeboard is the only one I found that truly fits the bill, and also has a pocket on the left side where I can keep my Anker external charge pack, whether I'm using it to recharge the iPad mid-flight or just storing the charger. Bear in mind that this kneeboard won't fold up to protect the face of your iPad... and that's because its built with loads of functionality specifically as a flight accessory. It DOES come with a sturdy drawstring bag to slip the entire unit inside when not in use to protect the iPad. You may also want to consider the usual types of screen protectors to apply onto the iPad face as an extra measure of protection. This is not your usual iPad case that does nothing but protect the iPad. It is a purpose-built tool that is exclusively for pilots, and it performs like no other at its purpose.December 29, 2016Durability5 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value1 / 5Well built but needs tweakingThe leg strap doesn't tighten to my liking and gets loose easily. I currently use a zuluworks kneeboard and it uses snug velcro to hold it closed. I could use a way to keep it semi-locked in place as it tends to rotate slightly. Also, Id like a way for it to tilt towards m slightly. The side pocket is nice and I keep my phone in there but it would be nice for a place to put a paper checklist (i don't like having a digital checklist in the cockpit but thats just me). Maybe people will like this more than me but for the price I expected more.June 28, 2016Durability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value4 / 5Built toughLove It's quality, before you purchase think over a yoke mount first, I now think I'll change to a yoke mount but if you know lap mount is what your looking for the build quality is great.September 3, 2016Durability5 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Handy pilotgearAt first it looks a bit bulky and it is actually. However : weight is low due to use of modern lightweight materials. Once in use you will love it as much as I do. Very practical especially in smaller cockpits like single engine 4 seaters . Higly recommended.November 21, 2016Durability5 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value3 / 5Good, Well Made, but a Few FlawsLots of functions, and generally well thought out. The elastic leg strap's buckle slides too easily in the looser direction, so I'm occasionally re-tightening it. It's a little bulky, but not so bad that it's unusable in my Mooney. The fold down platform is handy both for some paper (backup, in case the electronics die, and a nice place to store some sticky notes to cover a failed flight instrument) and as a place to rest my right hand. The various pockets are nice to have for stashing a pen and a backup stylus, along with the primary stylus and charger for same. Having a small elastic strap over the pad of paper provides a good anchor for a tether on the stylus.June 8, 2016Durability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesKneeboard with iPad Pro 10.5Pros:
-Well made, durable
-Rotation is a very nice feature in a small cockpits
-laterl zip pocket it's almost perfect
-My iPad Pro 10.5 fits well the clamps firmly secure it
-The description says that is compatible with iPad Pro 10.5, but for me the clamps are too tight, 9.7 will fit better
-Because the thigthnes of the clamps I don't know how will last the elastic bands that holds the clamps
-It's a bit bulky when you try to store in your bag
-With 10.5 when it's in horitzontal position it's difficult to close the zip from the right side pocket, and also use the left mesh pocket.In Piper Warrior III cockpitJuly 20, 2017Purchased
3 weeks agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5A bit tight in the 172, but great product!This is a great kneeboard for your iPad Mini. I've been using it for about a month now, and am very happy with it so far. The only minor drawback I see with it is that I find myself hitting the iPad screen with the yoke when I have back pressure applied (takeoffs and landings.) I don't think there is really any way around it, but definitely another good reason to have a glass screen protector on your iPad to keep your investment safe!October 19, 2016
