After a few modifications, it works perfectly.
I have always been one to use the RAM products for cockpit mounting, due to the incredible array of options. They are cheap and reliable, albeit bulky. The bulk was an issue. I was looking for a solution which would allow me to carry a kneeboard and a yoke mount in my small flight bag. Additionally, I wanted a kneeboard that was compatible with the Apple magnetic cover, so that I could protect my iPad screen if it was on my knee when fighting a crosswind, or using shoulder harnesses with metal fittings - both of which have been a concern in the past.

I purchased the MyGoFlight sport kneeboard separately and used it for about a year before purchasing the yoke mount. I am pleased with it. Pretty pricey, but it has been of value.

After purchasing the yoke mount, I’m happy to say the bulk issue is now under control. I have the ability to carry a kneeboard and yoke mount with very little bulk.

The part that is disappointing is the actual claw that grips the yoke shaft. I was not pleased with that piece of hardware at all. In order to get it tight enough to not slide around, you have to crank it to the point where closing the over-center brace feels like its going to snap something. If you’re successful at getting it to close, good luck removing it from the yoke. Trying to pry it past the over-center piece to unscrew it from the yoke is nearly impossible. After a few attempts on my first day using the unit, my fingers were red and painful. I much prefer the RAM claw, which simply tightens onto the yoke with no fuss. It seems like in an attempt to create the “best” system ever, the makers of this product forgot to test it out.

I was able to remove the MyGoFlight claw, and using 2 1/4-20 coupling nuts and a trip to the local welder, join the yoke mount adapter and arms to my existing RAM claw. The result looks a little hillbilly, but works like a charm. Now that I’ve modified it I feel that I have finally got a solution that will work long-term.

iPad Yoke Flex Arm
Purchased the iPad Yoke Flex Arm and related iPad Holder as none of the kneeboards would accommodate my iPad Pro 10.5". Product works as advertised holding the iPad in a stable and effective position. The Product could use a detailed installation and use instruction manual. Also, the head of the Flex Arm that connects to the iPad could use some form of tension adjustment so that the iPad does not rotate unexpectedly while performing an Instrument Approach.

Yoke mount
Great mount for a Piper Cherokee 180. Placed a piece of 3/4 in tubing on yoke then attached mount to yoke from the bottom which positioned it perfectly. Used tubing to dampen out any play from directly mounting to yoke. Works great, better than any other yoke mount I’ve encountered

Yoke Mount
While I have yet to use this in flight I did connect this to my simulator yoke. It is quality and unobtrusive and I expect that it will be the same way in my next flight.

how I can connect it to iPad ?

BEST ANSWER: You'll want to use a MyGoFlight Universal Cradle or the Sport Case. The back of the case secures into the circle adapter with the green release buttons in the picture.
Here's one of the cases that will be compatible.

Hi, I bought the universal cradle from MGF in 2015, does it work with this arm?
