2 weeks agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value2 / 5Would You Recommend?NoKnow what you're gettingI have a 10.5" Ipad Pro. I knew it would be a tight fit, but I liked the form factor. It really is a tight fit, but the real problems are two-fold for me. The straps that hold the Ipad are big, one at each edge. They are so big that they cover up screen buttons in that area. You have to push the straps out of the way to get to them. Also, the case just doesn't fit the Ipad very well. It's too big for the envelope. You can get the cover shut but it only covers about 4/5ths of the Ipad. I'll use this for the interim, but I am still looking for the best kneeboard for an 10.5" Ipad ProSeptember 25, 2018Ease Of Use1 / 5Value2 / 5Would You Recommend?NoDisappointedI was duped by the right side zipper. I thought it worked like the
Flight Outfitters writing platform. LOOK CAREFULLY, a zipper that opens to almost nowhere. I can't hardly get my hand in there to get a pencil on the bottom. Although, I'm not paying another $35 for a pro "writing platform"!July 26, 2018Purchased

It's basically okay. Lots of slop with the iPad four-corner strap-ins. Like most all like items on the market, hook and loop straps wok as well as any. Would like more umph in the iPad strap areas. For the $, it's an average buy.July 9, 2018Purchased

In addition, one of the elastic straps covered the light sensor causing the iPad to dim to a point that I could not see the display. I would not recommend for anyone with an iPad Pro! Great concept, terrible design!June 25, 2018Purchased

Compact, durable, and able to be used for Portrait or Landscape viewing. Also allows tilting up of the iPad for visibility.

7 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesEasily Modified Into a High End KneeboardI really wanted a case where I could have access to a paper pad and the iPad, but I didn't want to spend $125 for it. I settled for this one, and with one medium size alligator clip was able to modify the kneeboard to beautifully accomplish my goal.
In order to do it, you need a folding iPad case with a lid. Rather than securing the ipad directly to the kneeboard, secure the lid to the kneeboard so the iPad is free to move. It works wonderfully.April 6, 2018Purchased
7 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use2 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?YesModifications needed to make it more practical for iPad 10.5Generally this kneeboard is very comfortable and pretty durable for the iPad in flight, but there is a major issue regarding the mounting of the iPad 10.5 in the unit using the elastic corner retainers. As the 10.5 has less of a bezel than the Mini or 9.7 and the screen fills more of the space on the iPad corner to corner, the elastic retainers on the kneeboard mount block app controls in the corners of the screen, which is an issue when using many aviation apps like ForeFlight. Additionally, there is no clipboard area to retain papers or notes when you’re not using the iPad. I am going to make a new iPad retainer for the kneeboard to Velcro in place using another case that won’t restrict the corners and provides a more rigid shell. Using the flap that covers the zippered compartment on the right, I am going to craft a clipboard overlay that I can flip over and place on top of the iPad when needed. Once I do this I may forward photos to the product design team at Sportys to see if any of these additions might be worth adapting in a later design.
I recommend it for earlier models of iPad and on durability for the cost, but not quite yet for the iPad 10.5App functions in corners blocked by elastic on 10.5 iPadMarch 13, 2018Purchased

Browse 27 questions Browse 27 questions and 33 answersWhat size iPad with this accommodate?BEST ANSWER: There are two options - one for the iPad Mini size (1-4), and one for iPad Air 1-2/iPad Pro 9.7".Will this secure the iPad during aerobatics? I'm looking for a sturdy iPad kneeboard that isn't bulky, will hold things in place during aerobatics, and won't pop off when my g-suit inflates.BEST ANSWER: I have this knee-board and I love it! But ... I would not trust it in aerobatics. The Velcro just holds the bottom of the iPad in place to keep it from sliding around during normal operations. After having this for a week, I am certain your iPad would fly right off in high G situations.Will this case hold the IPad Pro 10.5"? There are two similar questions that appear to conflict.BEST ANSWER: Yes it will hold the 10.5 iPad.Is it possible to rotate this to wear on the left leg?BEST ANSWER: Yes it is possible to rotate this to use on the left leg.How come the availability says “in-stock” on the product description page, but when I add it to my cart, it says it’s out of stock?

The clips that hold the edges of the tablet are able to expand.I know it states what iPads it holds, but can it also fit older model iPads?BEST ANSWER: The biggest factor is the screen size. I just got my new knee-board a few days ago and love it. It has elastic straps that hold the iPad in place. So it is not like some hard case mounts that are ultra specific.
My iPad is a 9.7" screen, but is 11" exactly from corner to corner. If your iPad (or other tablet, for that matter) measures around that, you should be good to go with this knee-board. OH! And it is comfortable, too! My only wish is that they had another Velcro strap at the top, too, for extra hold when i have the knee-board flat, as in my aircraft I actually prefer NOT to prop it up.
Hope that helps.I see questions about the straps blocking the corners of the iPad. Is it possible to cut a slight notch and still keep the iPad secure to the knee board?BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend cutting any material out of the elastic strap because it may weaken the
tension strength or possibly cause it to become unraveled. If the strap obstructs viewing presentation that is in the corner of the ipad or tablet, you may want to try wrapping thread , string, or a narrow piece of tape around the elastic to make the strap more narrow. That would still preserve the strength of strap and possibly improve the view. Good luck.
BobWill it hold the iPad Pro 10.5" ?BEST ANSWER: This WILL fit the pro 10.5”. This will not fit the 12” pro.Will it work with the Apple Smart case?BEST ANSWER: The elastic straps that secure the iPad to the kneeboard have enough elasticity to stretch over the iPad while in a smart case. However, doing this will add bulk to an already less than slim case.Hi! I'd like to know what difference between this one and Flight Gear HP iPad Kneeboard ?
