    Anyone have an issue with their iPad mini getting very warm during flight. Mine seems to heat up considerably.

    I use an iPad Air 2 and an iPhone 6+ and have no problem with either one running hot.

    Mini 2 ambient temp specs state 95 degrees fahrenheit as the max. That's not real high if you ask me. I'm looking at getting a USB fan to see if the micro USB port on the controller will power it and if it makes a difference. If you ask me this is a business opportunity for someone if that port outputs power. You could probably print a bracket that houses and powers 2 fans and attaches to the DJi tablet holder.

    I literally received my new Inspire today in KC, MO where it is in the 90's today. I also purchased an IPAD Air for a monitor. I was flying for no more than 10 min and it shut down due to the temp. Has anyone that had problems with iPads shutting down from overheating purchased a hoodie and had that mitigate the overheating issue completely? I would be very interested in your perspective.

    Cheers,
    Brad

    Haven't had that issue yet but the Summer heat is just now arriving, was 106ยบ yesterday, and looks like a spell of hot days ahead. So I will get my chance to test the RTH if the iPad craps out due to heat.
