1 year agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat qualityCons:
You'll read many comments about the clipboard falling off of the front. These comments are accurate and when I got mine it had a sticker on it saying the clipboard secures to the inside of the case (no mention of the front). Problem is that their own description and video lead you to believe both. This is not true though and it does stay on the front empty, but barely and not when tilted. They could easily add magnets to it. The paper that it comes with shows it somehow titled but not in an illustration that shows how to do it. I have yet to see how, even having played with it for some time. Instructions how to accomplish this would be nice. The clipboard is very small also. Not a con really but I was surprised at it's size. For the price there should be a simple pen holder. Even a loop on the side or top front, or maybe on the clipboard. A major bonus would be to have two or three so one could be for a stylus and one for a backup pen. Added magnets (or stronger ones) with pen holders would make this product perfect.
Despite the cons it is a high quality product. The leather is great and the mechanism for the spin seems top notch. I own the larger of them for the 12.9 ipad. It's perfectly sized without giving too much over what it will need. Love it.December 2, 2018Purchased

2 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance1 / 5Ease Of Use2 / 5Value1 / 5Would You Recommend?NoExpected betterConsidering the price and MGF reputation for excellent products, I was very disappointed in the Mini iPad version of this kneeboard. First of all, there is no pencil/stylus holder. Second, when the clipboard side has a pad of paper, the kneeboard won't completely close. When it is closed (not completely) the clip on the clipboard comes dangerously in contact with the screen of the iPad. Additionally, the plastic corners of the clip come off all of the time and will surely be lost soon. The only saving grace is that the clipboard is detachable and can be placed on the outside cover.August 14, 2018Purchased

It works great as a protective portfolio case for everyday business, and easily converts to a kneeboard for flight ops. The firm but padded exterior offers decent protection for the iPad, and the magnetic clasp makes it all the better. Worth the investment - Very happy!April 23, 2018Purchased

9 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesWork in ProgressRusty pilot with new technology. I bought it for the Kneeboard using a 10.5” IPad. Video on this site is not for the Folio C Kneeboard. Appears to be well put together. Very disappointed there is no pen /pencil/stylus holder. Another object to get loose in the cockpit. Apple Stylus has no clip on it and same for several other cheapy stylus pens. Would echo another remark that since you Cannot close the writing board on the IPad screen, put magnets also on the outside cover. Existing holding strength on cover is nil. 10.5” iPad fits fine even when turning to horizontal. Still struggling to find optimal knee pad orientation if you don’t want to use cover/writing tablet (fold back the cover underneath the IPad I guess) and the knee strap.
Hard to please everyone I guess.January 20, 2018Purchased

To reattach it is nearly impossible with one hand.January 15, 2018Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesThe best of iPad and Notepad worldsThis is my third and final purchase of an iPad kneeboard. My first was all metal and difficult to keep on my knee. The second had no clipboard for writing on paper, which is a must for IFR flying. This one allows for versatile iPad mounting while allowing for the clipboard to be attached (via magnet) to either the inner flap or the external cover, if closed.December 28, 2017Purchased

- Question and Answer
Browse 11 questions Browse 11 questions and 14 answersDoes this fit the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro? What option do I select since that is not one of the options.BEST ANSWER: iPad with 10" Screen
The iPad Air 1-2, iPad 2017, and the newest 9.7" Pro will all fit in the same kneeboard. Some Android tablets with similar dimensions will work too. This kneeboard is also compatible with the New iPad Pro 10.5" but it is a snug fit.Does this fit the IPAD 2?BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does. The iPad Mini gen 2/3 work just fine.Compatible with IPAD Air 2 in Otterbox case?BEST ANSWER: Hi Ed, this is a great kneeboard but it will definitely not work with any case. it fits the iPad VERY tightly and securely. Also, something to note is that the clipboard does not work well with the iPad. The metal clip protrudes around a half inch from the board (plus the thickness of the notepad). The two protrusions directly contact the iPad screen when closed and, I feel, will scratch or crack the screen in time. I keep them separately in a backpack and place the clipboard in place once opened and ready for use. ChrisIs this a good case for a IFR student in a part 141 program?BEST ANSWER: Its a good case, but have a couple challenges. 1) the magnets aren't strong enough to hold the clipboard so it tends to fall off (I use binder clips to hold it), 2) have to keep the clipboard on the outside when closing the cover or it will scratch the ipad, 3) its big and bulky in an archer / arrowHi. I got the kneeboard for my Ipad Pro 9.7. I plan to get the Ipad Pro 11. Does it fit into my current kneeboard?BEST ANSWER: It will not fit into the kneeboard that you have.
