Visibility is pretty important to me so I'm experimenting with Reflexite Prismatic V92 Daybright Tape.

I'll show a couple pictures below this post.

This is an aluminum backed sticky tape. The aluminum part concerned me, but didn't seem to affect any flight or GPS functions on my first test flight.
I might have even picked up better satellite reception...but can't say this for sure.

Can someone please tell me the absolute best anti-glare film for my iPad Air-2?
It appears there are a lot of junk films out there. Finding the best anti-glare is hard for me to sort.
Help me if you know for sure....which is best.

Try B&H Photo bhphoto.com. They have everything under the sun and they are also an Apple Dealer. They will give you an honest answer. They also have Live Chat on their website. You may want a shade also. Most recommend the Hoodie. I just received on for my iPad Air 2 and it is a nice quality product that won't break the Bank.

Roger...can you please post a link to the hoodie you have, or one like it?

I have a sun hood for my iPad Air-2 but they are nearly worthless (my opinion only) because so much light comes in the bottom.

Thanks, Roger!

www.hoodievision.com  There are several colors, I bought the Brushed Aluminum as it is somewhat close to the color of the Inspire Controller. They said Backordered 2-4 weeks. Mine came in about a week to ten days via USPS.

Looks pretty cool but has it made any difference? Can you see it any better with the stickers?

Is this what you have? http://www.hoodivision.com/#!for-ipad-air-1-2/cz3s I assume you didn't get the magnet version of it if this is it?

Actually I did because it was much more convenient. The magnets are not strong enough to interfere with the compass in the iPad Air 2.

I should add that if there was any issue at all it would be with the Tablet and not the Inspire itself as the Compass in the Inspire is a separate item. I would keep anything metal away from the Inspire while calibrating it.

I think we are addressing two different issues on this Post? One is that the Hoodie came up and the other is an Anti Glare covering for the Tablet. I suggested contacting B&H for the Anti Glare coating and Hoodievision.com for a Hood.

The following anti glare product has been used by some people on their phones/tablets and they claim that it actually works.

Bought two of these. A little awkward to get on but they do work and they're inexpensive.

Back when I had an original ipad, up to the ipad 3 I did a ton of research. Power Support made the best anti-glare film around. I assume the same is still true. Way better than the stuff you can get at best buy, etc.

Mark,

Can I see it better? I sure can under some light conditions. I'm also looking into a large (but light weight) battery operated LED blinking light. Being able to see this bird at a distance is so very important to me. If you have any other ideas I'd appreciate hearing them. Thanks Mark!

I used to carry a strobe light when I went diving, easy to spot at a distance. Have a look at these.

You may wish to look at these Adventure lights also - they come in Red, Green, White.

I have a Red one on my Phantom at its much brighter than the onboard lights and also better to see as I have it fixed with zip ties on the front.  

Durable and waterproof also.

refry,

These Adventure lights are really good, cheap and available in US and Canada, UK, Australia etc.

I can recommend them.  I also have one attached to my rucksac as an emergency beacon.  Well worth the money.
