Great cradle problem mounting.
The cradle holds the 9.7 beautifully, the problem I am having is mounting. The Skybolt has a cozy cockpit and I have gone through a number of arms and anchors. The claw, double swivel and the long arm combinations just are not working. Currently waiting for the short arm.

Everything I expected it to be. Had the larger iPad before and used a similar ram product also great!

Reliable mounting solution for an iPad.
The Ram 9.7 cradle replaces the Ram iPad mini cradle I was using before. A simple solution for mounting my new 9.7 iPad.

modular design works
Upgraded from ipad mini to pro. This cradle was a snap-in replacement for the mini bracket on my yoke mount, just as advertised.

Just what I needed!
I usually fly with an iPad mini, but have recently decided to try a full-size iPad in the cockpit. I have the new 9.7" iPad Pro, and it fits the cradle perfectly and is held securely. While it seems a bit pricey, it's exactly what I need!

High quality and good value
This is my second iPad cradle from Ram. The first was for the larger, iPad 2. Both are of good quality and offer a good fit for my yoke mounted iPads.

Is this iPad Ram cradle for an iPad 4 or 1,2,3? I bought one at your tent at OSH and the 4 is a very tight fit.
A shopper on Aug 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This fits the iPad Air 1 or 2, as well as the new iPad Pro 9.7". It will not fit the older iPad models (1-4). For that, choose this cradle: http://www.sportys.com/pilotshop/ram-ipad-1-4-cradle-mount.html
I have a new iPad 9.7. I protect it with an otter box with the removable screen protector. It's not really that thick and was wondering if it would fit in this cradle?
Thanks
Chris S on Dec 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it fits.
The IPAD does get hot however and I would suggest the X-type holder.
Will this product work for the new iPad 9.7 released last month? It is thicker than the 9.7 Pro. The new 9.7 depth is .29" (7.5 mm). The 9.7 Pro depth is .24" (6.1 mm).
Lyndle C on Apr 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That’s what I have. Works perfectly
how do you mount it?
A shopper on Dec 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The RAM system can be mounted in several ways, on the yoke, by a suction cup or to the glare shield.
I'm interested in a cradle for my iPad Pro. It measures 9 7/16" x 6 11/16". Is the RAM-HOL-AP17U the correct cradle?
Dave C on Aug 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes this will fit the 9.7 pro.
I have a iPad 9.4 height 9.7 Diagonal. This is not the Pro or the Air. I believe it's considered the iPad 4. However it doesn't say that on invoice. It just reads iPad. Just bought from Apple Store in July. Wondering which cradle will fit?.
Rob K on Aug 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If the iPad is an iPad 4 it will not fit in this cradle. It will fit item 4747A. You can determine which ipad
it is by going to apple.com and entering the serial number.
will this fit the Samsung
galaxy tab E 9.6" ?
Doug M on Aug 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is form fitted to the iPad air1/2 and 9.7 Pro. I would recommend the x-grip for 10" tablets item #
1674A.
