Hoodman HAV1KIT reviews

Drone Aviator Hood Kit for iPad mini, DJI CrystalSky 7.85" is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty Good It screens out light very well when both the hood and extender are attached. My big problem is with trying to operate the iPad. There are two elastic panels that you can stick your fingers into, but it's hard to reach the main button. And sticking your hand down the hood doesn't work because you can't see the screen. Also you have to remove any protective case on your iPad, very tight fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolutely Essential for Precise Positioning of UAV I was becoming incredibly frustrated with the glare on my tablet trying to fly my UAV. Though the brightness was as high as possible, and I had an antiglare film on the tablet, I still couldn't see as well as I required to ensure I was perfectly positioned on my subject. This hood is phenomenal. I can see everything perfectly so I know the UAV is in the best possible position. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is the flap on the bottom is really stiff, and makes getting your finger inside at the screen controls is awkward. But I hope with use it relax and it will be easier. Overall it is extremely well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hood On The Market! This hood might seem expensive but spend your money right the first time and get this one. All the others are lame in comparison and don't allow for a full blackout on the display how this set up does. I admit spending the money was a little hard to do but once I went out and flew with it I knew I had made the right choice. I have no regrets so far and would absolutely suggest this for anyone looking for a hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I never review, but I had to speak up. You'll never go back While I wish it was finished a tiny bit better (fraying ends of straps and some loose stitching), the product works really well, much better than my hacks. After using it for only a week, I can't imagine working on a bright day without it. The full hood is cumbersome, although relocating the neck strap for better balance will likely solve that, but I've been using just the bottom half for all but the brightest conditions. For anything on the water, the full hood makes all that reflection irrelevant. I never review products, but I had to speak up on this one. You'll never go back to hood-less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hoodman Drone Aviator Hood Kit For Ipad Mini Prior to purchasing the Hoodman Drone Aviator Hood Kit For Ipad Mini I struggled with flying my DJI Inspire 1 when it was bright and sunny. Glare made my photography and shooting video a struggle. The Hoodman has solved it. I love the product because it reduces all the glare associated with the sun. If you are serious about flying your drone, this is a must have KIT. One quirk with the unit is getting you hand in the slit. Its slightly difficult.Well done Hoodman this is a great product and solved my problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best solution for blind drone syndrome! Solid piece of kit! Nothing better out there for a clear view of your control panel. A few mods are needed to make it perfect but I highly recommend this item if you're flying in bright conditions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect in the bright sun This kit works well when dealing with the bright sunlight. You can see everything, and if you need to you can put your face right up to the hood.
