Awesome iPad kneeboard!
I’ve used the Flight Outfitters iPad Kneeboarding for several flights now on cross countries and it works really good! Hold my iPad in really good no movement whatsoever but I will say be careful on the adjustment on the elastic strap because I have yet to find a nice comfortable adjustment to where it’s not too tight. Other than that it’s a great product, I don’t normally use the little notepad on the side because it can be hard to write there so I just use it to hold my phone and with using the scratchpad on foreflight.
Very well worth it!

Not as practical as I expected
This kneeboard does it's job in that it holds my iPad Mini 4 well..... but that is about all it does. I am a student pilot with about 35 hours flight time including some solo and I find this kneeboard is inadequate because it doesn't hold papers well. The little flip-out note pad looks cool, but it isn't nearly stable enough to actually use as a writing surface. I am constantly writing on a note pad and then trying to stuff it under the corner of the iPad kneeboard. The BEST thing about this kneeboard is the elastic strap has a clip-buckle - I like that sooo much more than the two-piece Velcro straps trying to get the right amount of tension each time - this one you just set it once and it is ready for the next time. Also the mesh pocket on my kneeboard has already ripped. This product would be better if it included a standard clipboard fold out and a vertical pocket big enough to hold a checklist in place of the mesh pocket.

I love it, however, if you could make it lighter would be better.

I also cut the elastic wraps that hold the iPad from the corners because they were covering part of the screen, solved using Velcro. Much better now.

I cut the elastic holders from the corners and used Velcro instead. Much better now.

Still getting used to it
It's a good kneeboard. So far, it's been on two actual flights for me and served me well on both. Before taking it up I used it when I was on a home flight simulator (X-Plane 11) with a new EFB to reduce risk and keeping better crew resource management trying something new. It really helps a lot.

The concerns I have with it are: 1) it does tend to slip a little bit at times on my leg and; 2) I use an Android tablet and even though it fits, I'm concerned that because it isn't the same dimensions as the iPad, it will stretch out the elastic over time as it is longer and narrower than intended even with a protective case.

That being said, it is a fantastic tool that I would buy again. Having it secured to my leg makes using an EFB far easier than the traditional kneeboard, which saved me time in finding frequencies, weather, and other vital information early enough on one flight to keep me clear of MVFR that was pushing in and out of IFR.

Not completely what I expected.
Zipper pull came off on the first use. The elastic pieces on the corners cover areas of the screen that are needed. I like the swivel feature, wish it incorporated a tilt function as well.

Strong sturdy and practical. You won’t take off without it. The writing platform is very handy and firm. It’s easier to manipulate through pages keeping it on your leg because it’s out of the sun. You won’t be disappointed.

Fairly poor, actually...
I must say, I’m disappointed. This looked very promising, but unfortunately didn’t deliver. First, the knee board is large, heavy, clumsy to carry around (it takes up more room than a headset in my flight bag) and doesn’t fold over to cover or protect the iPad when not in use, so you realistically are taking it in and out for every flight. This will surely ruin the elastic straps in no time.
Secondly, the new straps (that were an “improvement” because people broke the plastic clips that hold the iPad) are a poor solution - they obscure parts of the screen and important buttons on the iPad itself. Maybe just get stronger clips?
Thirdly, the small writing platform is very clumsy to use... no one realistically ever writes way down there, and you can’t write on top of the iPad without messing up what you had up n the touchscreen. Never mind that one if the zipper pulls came off the second time I tried to use it!
So, unfortunately this thing is collecting dust, since I had bought it before starting flight school. Don’t waste your money.
One bright spot, though, is that the leg strap was really nice.

Love this kneepad!
I have the older version with the corner clips and absolutely love it. It holds the new iPad Pro 11" perfectly. Its a little snug, but gets the job done. Frankly I don't like the new corner straps. They are probably easier to put on, but with the 11" iPad Pro the straps will obscure some of the data in the bottom of the data strip. In any case, I would recommend over any case! I also have the MGF Kneeboard, but don't like it as much as this kneeboard.

Not sure hot you would actually hold a pad of paper to make notes. I can't tell if you fold one of the covers over to create a writing surface. Please elaborate or show more pictures. I am adding a question mark since it doesn't think this is a question?
