Re: iPad in DA40

I got the RAM cradle for the pro 11 ; it was too heavy for the ball , arm and iPad. I used a part of my MGF mount and added a ball to the clip , shortened the arm to about 5 inches and it seems to work.

Re: Cabin Heat when in hanger

You might consider making a flex duct and leaving the heater out of the airplane.

Re: iPad in DA40

I have installed the ball mount in my DA 42 . I now need to determine the proper parts from RAM mounts to attach the i pad pro 11 inch unit. Has anyone done this mod yet and if so can you send part numbers and photos. Thank you. David
