I made the 4” wide aluminum mounting plate as described in my post above. The iPad is mounted in portrait orientation. iPad covers INOP switches and Avionics switch that I always leave powered on. Nice sturdy mount and easily removable with Velcro under the avionics bay. Should be good-to-go. Weather not good for flying today...

John
Do you have more info on your iPad mount? Looks like a swivel piano hinge mount of some sort with what i would guess to be an adjustable arm for angle? Mounted over the glove box?

Pull pin and remove. Used 3 screws already there. No new holes. Folds back out of way for passenger. Very happy with it. Angle is what I wanted.

Being cheap...

The OtterBox case for my iPad Mini came with a cover/stand it snaps into.

I put some 3M SuperLock tape on the back - think heavy duty Velcro.

To that I attached two 1" R.A.M. balls, which I already had.

I happened to use suction cups attached to my canopy, but once you have R.A.M. balls attached to something, the options are endless.

I'll see if I can find photos.

Here's the idea, with one R.A.M. ball at first:



A second ball made everything much more secure, "triangulating" the mount:



End result:

Default IPad for RV 12

I find that a RAM suction mount for my iPad mini attached to the open real estate on the right panel works fine. Very rarely does the suction cup fail; and if it does itís no problem to reattach it. Plus, I have a 12 volt plug at the floor level between the seats that allows me to keep the iPad fully charged. The RAM mount enables perfect placement. The iPad mini is a newer model that has astounding anti-glare properties. Coupled to a Stratus 2 the Dynon ADSB-out talks to Foreflight providing weather and traffic. I also use a RAM iPhone mount on the left canopy that enables me to position the phone at a perfect angle for the bifocals I wear to see detail of the sectional. I tend to set both the Dynon and the iPad to terrain view (aeronautical view on the iPad) because itís easier to see traffic without the relative clutter of the sectional view.
