I use this for my iPad mini 4 on a Cessna 172 works great!

I mistakenly chose this mount over the Ram mount. I am a CFII and I am trying to transition my students from paper to an iPad mini. The clamp that attaches the Flex Mount to the control yoke tube is a poor fit. I is supposed to fit yokes or yoke tubes measuring from 5/8" to 1-1/2". I have two Cessna 172's with 3/4" yoke tubes and the clamp does not securely lock on to the tube. I also tried to clamp it on the casting where the tube attaches to the tube. This measures approximately 1-1/4" and it is still loose.
The two arms that position the Flex Mount to the iPad mount are poorly designed for a Cessna 172. The iPad is positioned too close to the pilot and away from his scan. I tried to articulate the arms and it does move the mount closer to the yoke but it is either off center or the arm interferes with the PTT switch.

I love this product. I have been Looking for a while for a practical iPad mount that makes flying the King Air a better experience. I have found it. The flex yoke is so versatile you can mount the iPad in such a way that is does not block instruments nor get in the way of the controls when flying. Great mount/Unmount feature that takes a couple of seconds. You can turn the iPad to landscape or portrait mode. Would recommend!

At first, I was very skeptical of the Flex Yoke because it looked so awkward. But, I ordered the Flex Yoke and mounted it in my Mooney. Boy was I surprised, you can maneuver the yoke arms and mount this product perfectly. I had the old ram type mount and was never happy with it, but this Flex Yoke is, well, perfect.

I fly with an aero club and the Flex Yoke Mount moves easily from one Cherokee to another and stays where I put it. My instrument instructor wants one now.

The flex yoke mount is very durable and well thought out. Perfect for saving space in my Archer III.
