The Sport™ Mount - Flex Panel - an INFINITELY articulating and adjustable arm. There is no other panel mount for a device that does all that this unit does in a single, light-weight, easy to configure mount.
Sport Mount - Flex Panel is the perfect mounting solution for pilots that would like to install a iPad/Tablet directly into their panel, such as in many experimental aircraft. The Panel base has the same hole pattern as existing instrument gear, so installation is a breeze, requiring no power tools.
This is a perfect mounting solution in cockpits where space is tight.
NOTE: You must have a Device Holder to use this mount

Flex Panel can be installed into an existing panel instrument slot without having to cut any holes
Ball and socket ends and a ratcheting center provide infinite adjustment to height and position

The arm is comprised of three independent joints, all adjustable and lockable from a single, centrally located control knob

The control knob allows partial loosening for safe and precise device positioning
No longer limited to fixed length, limited rotation RAM arms
They make this unit appear to mount into existing standard instrument mounting holes. Not even close. Even the diagram for the hole pattern they give you has the math wrong. On top of that they are attaching the arm to the mounting plate by jamming a
standard split lock washer into a huge 90 deg countersunk hole from the rear. Never would have known that if i didnt have to take it apart to make a new mounting plate! Junk!
