    Here's a new sunshade for the iPad mini that I just came across.

    Drone Aviator hood for the iPad mini - HAV1 in Aviator Hoods

    Hoodman has been making high quality shades for larger monitors for a long time. You always see their products during televised football games.
    I have several of their products and their customer service is great.
    This one looks like it will adapt to other tablets too.

    Anyone knows if this hood will work with an IPAD AIR?

    Think you might want the larger Hav2 version.

    Thanks. My daughter ordered me one for my b-day, but I upgraded from IPAD mini 3 to AIR. Think it may be made to fit?

    Think you'd probably struggle as you'd block out some of the screen. They're nicely made so it'd be a shame to mess it up - Probably better to return it and get the bigger one.

    Their compatibility chart specifies the HAV1 for all iPad mini models. Can't be sure from the marketing photos, but it looks like you want the correct size because it mounts to the front of the tablet.

    Check out the attached photo. That is the look I am going for to beat glare. Heads Up FPV display, and an antenna extender mounted on top.

    The iPad mini with the smaller display area goes with HAV1, the larger 9.7" models like the iPad Air and Pro need the HAV2, there's also a lrager one for the Pro 12.9" version.

    The Hoodman shade mounts on top of the front of the iPad screen and has two straps that run top-bottom which hold it to the iPad. There's a 3rd strap running left-right which can be used to help secure it around the back of the RC control mount. It needs to be secured around the RC mount as with the Hood in place it changes the centre of gravity and can pull the iPad out of the mounting clamp.

    Hope that helps futher!
