Pros: Easy to install, easy to mount the iPad and it holds it securely. Cons: Needed to add a longer clamp and double ball to be able to position the cradle where I wanted it. Not a problem with the product, just an added step and a few more parts to get it to work. With a few more RAM parts I'll be able to take it from the plane to the golf cart.

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!

Pros: In vertical mode it fits inside the yoke. It has an opening on the single retainer side for the charging cable, if that is your preferred side for the touch button up or down. It is nice and trim, so no extra bulk to interfere with PTT or AP switch disconnect. Cons: I would like to see Sporty's have more of the singular RAM components available to customize other options for mounting, like different lengths of the straight connector, etc. The straight connector that mounts the cradle to the suction cup or yoke mount looks like a gun barrel on x-Ray by TSA, so the bozo's took mine from my suitcase the last time I travelled, not even taking the time to see it was just a bracket connector! Keep that part in your carry-on, so they can see what it is.

Pros: Easily switched from my old I Pad mount to the I Pad Air. Fits between the yoke grips, using the yoke mount, on my Piper Archer without blocking any instruments. Cons: None noted to date. The Ram mounting system has more than met my needs and expectations.

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.

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

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).
