    Just had a big scare on my 2nd flight. My iPad stopped responding and said "iPad Overheating." It was really hot. Anyone else ever get this before? Not going to be good if I can't take this thing out on an 85 degree day and have it do that.

    I've had that happen, too.

    Get a hoodi shade for it. This one is on Nvidea Shield. image.jpg

    I have one of those but couldn't get it to fit with the holder on the remote. Just went to hoodivision's site though and I think I see how they make it fill. Will try it again later.

    Yes, I've had the hoodi fly off, but the new holder actually clamps onto the hoodi and the tablet; very secure now.

    Yes, mine overheating, too, and caused live feed to poop out and stutter terribly. Now, I'm using just my Nvidia Shield Tablet instead. Shield works great.

    Also, if you have any kind of case on the Mini take it off, just traps the heat inside.
