Pros: Was able to mount my iPad 2 in the Citabria with no issues. With the included pads the iPad is held firmly in the bracket with no concerns it will fall out my open window while flying.

Pros: iPad fits securely. I removed the ball, from the back, and mounted the cradle directly to the panel. Works perfectly if you have the panel space for it. Cons: None. I highly recommend it.

Pros: With the regular size RAM mount, I can use this iPad cradle both horizontally and vertically on my C-172M standard yokes. I thought iPad would be too heavy for it, but it's not bad. Does not block view badly in horizontal direction. Low cost. Cons: Have to take iPad out of case. Not a big deal.

Great
Provided you have a sleeve or other case that you can remove your iPad from easily, this holds my iPad 3rd Generation snugly, even in bumpy weather. This cradle combined with other RAM components makes a great system.

Pros: Good Quality Fits iPad2 as stated (albeit with a little wiggle room) Ability to attach it to any other 2" ball type RAM mounting brackets for multiple mounting solutions (suction cup, dashboard, seat rail etc) OK for mounting on co-pilot side Cons: Too bulky for a C172 and like airplane to be mounted anywhere on the pilot's side. ipad2 has a little wiggle room Won't fit ipad or Ipad2+case Honestly - It's too large for a C172 or like airplane UNLESS clamped on the co-pilot side but that would make it hard to read and a bit more out of reach. I'm an average sized person, 5'7 about 170lbs and it's too bulky on the yoke too. The mount itself is fine - it does what it says. There is slight wiggle room for an iPad2 but it's hardly noticeable. it will NOT fit your ipad+case just the ipad or ipad2 itself. I'm going to try a knee board solution instead. however the mount would still be useful if I had a knowledgeable co-pilot onboard who could make good use of a mounted display. Is it worth it? If you have the money to spend and a place to store it when not using it then yes. If you are looking for "THE" ipad solution. then NO, I do NOT consider it the magic bullet at all.
