Flight Outfitters tackled the issue of where and how to stow portable electronic devices by designing the clever iPad Mini Kneeboard with a turntable that allows vertical or horizontal viewing; a side notepad pocket "desk"; and an accessory pouch for charging cords, sunglasses, or other small items.
The kneeboard straps to a pilot's thigh with a beefy strap, and elastic corner brackets cradle the portable electronic device. A pair of padded rails stabilizes the system.
The kneeboard also worked well during a Super Cub flight and didn’t interfere with either the stick or the flap handle.
If there's one beef, it's that the kneeboard doesn't cover the iPad Mini's screen when not in use. The electronic device could be damaged if it slips or falls while in use or in transit.
All in all, the $59.95 iPad Mini Kneeboard (a full-size iPad Kneeboard is $69.96) functioned as intended and there was never a question of where I stashed my iPad Mini.
