Well made but too small.

Not Recommended

This product is well made, but the clip board is too small. It is much smaller than the iPad mini, which means normal plate sized pages don't fit on it.

Great for CFI's

Recommended

I have used this case/kneeboard since February and have found it to be a very high quality product. I did however give it 4 stars overall for only a couple of minor issues that I will mention. As for the Pros.... First and foremost, I was worried about my ipad mini overheating in the metal case. I used it all summer for flight instructing and I never had an issue with overheating. I believe that any head generated by the Ipad during use was transferred into the metal case and effectively dissipated. Obviously this is just a side benefit and not inherent to the design of the product in my opinion. Second, being able have your kneeboard and ipad as a single unit is a nice touch and greatly reduces cockpit clutter. And because of its compact size, it fits perfectly in the elastic pocket of my bose A20 headset bag.
Cons: The only 2 gripes that I have with the product is One: the front panel doesn't cover the entire face of the Ipad mini leaving about an inch of glass exposed when the case is closed.. This means that you can't use standard small note pads on it. you have to buy their replacements or cut your paper or note pads down to size. I just use a few pieces of 8 X 11 paper folded into quarters and that works perfect. That gives me a total of 8 sheets of paper for each full sheet of standard size sheet. And lastly, be prepared to replace the kneeboard strap after a few months. If you are a CFI and you are in and out of airplanes all day you will wear out the velcro fairly quickly. I had an old kneeboard laying around the house and took the elastic strap to replace the one on my ipad kneeboard. I am still in search of a more robust option. Overall a great product with fantastic workmanship!

Pros:
This knee board is very sturdy.
Cons:
The front clip board part isn't tall enough. It's shorter than the overall height of the iPad mini, and the design of the clip shortens the effective writing area on the clip board.
The top clip that holds the iPad in place isn't padded like the other side clips. I'm not sure why this is, but I have concerns about scratching the top front of my new iPad mini. I ended up putting some electrical tape inside the clip area to help protect the iPad.
The pen holder on the stretch velco leg strap is awkward.

Otherwise well made, but perhaps not worth the retail price. With some small changes this product could be improved.

I've bought a couple of other lap devices for the iPad mini. This one is clearly the best (and most expensive) I strap it to my right leg, and being aluminum, I can stick post-it notes to the flap that hinges over to my left leg. I use large size post it notes for clearances, etc.

I like that the iPad is encased by aluminum which really protects it.

Pros:
Very durable will be long lasting and get the job done.
Cons:
Too slippery on leg but putting non skid strips on back works.

May not use it as a kneeboard but as a writing pad holder.
