Great use of the rotating iPad knee board
The rotating knee board is the perfect solution for me. I have a panel mounted Garmin GNC420 and a yolk mounted old Garmin 295. Along with my trusty VOR ILS Navcom , ADF and DME, I couldn’t use a yolk mounted iPad holder as I didn’t want to lose the back up function of my good ole 295 with it’s battery power for back up safety. And with all this, I was only spending $20 bucks. Now all I have to get used to is having knee boards on both knees!

Poor design.
The selastic traps that hold the iPad in cover up some of the screen and functionality of ForeFlight. Making it difficult to use the app.
Poor design.

Great simple kneeboard
If you want simplicity this is the kneeboard for you! No frills, does exactly what it says it does. I can put my iPad 9.7 (4th gen) with case on the kneeboard. I only wish it could tilt but I made a homemade workaround.

The corner anchor straps covered some of the touch icons on my mini iPad. The photo on Sporty’s website shows a standard iPad. You would think the manufacturer would have actually tested the mini iPad kneeboard to verify that the corner straps didn’t cover any portion of screen.

rotating ipad kneeboard
I was disappointed that it would not rotate while in flight...which is why I bought it. To actually "rotate" it, I had to unhook it and turn it. but other than that, it's OK.

Works well for me
This iPad kneeboard works very well. It has held up really well and I don’t have to remove my iPad from its case to use it.

The bands on the corner cover the screen, making navigating the toolbars cumbersome while in flight.

Bands block screen
The strap works fine but the 4 bands that hole the iPad in place block part of the screen. If they were think and/or transparent it might be OK, but it's not usable as is.

Straps are not as shown
Seems well enough built considering the cost. But the actual product is not what is shown, as others have noted. The corner straps are anchored further from the corner, so they block the corners of the screen. With the Garmin ap, this covers the Home button and the Layers icon in the upper left and lower left corners, respectively. This is a deal killer.

Not suitable for iPad Air
The corner straps cover big chunks of the screen where some very important ForeFlight “buttons” are: Airports, map center (upper right corner), etc. Better to spend more and get a unit that holds the iPad by the edges.
