iPad Slot.JPG My iPad Mini fits perfectly into the slot in front of the Inspire Camera case. My concern is that the nose of the Inspire (Where Compass is located) is right next to where the iPad would be.

Is this close proximity to the Inspire's compass going to cause the compass to get screwed up?

I can't answer that question. However don't you calibrate your compass every flight?

Yes I do but I am worried about the compass getting screwed up to the point that it needs to be degaussed.

Oh, well still can't answer but that's a very good question as I carry my iPad there to.

I keep my iPad there, that a perfect spot, so no it will not effect your compass... and second, please do yourself a favor, do not calibrate every time you fly, you are only asking for trouble!
Calibrate only when needed. If your last flight was over 100 miles away, is a good reason too. If you bird is acting funny when you lift off and let it hover while your see how its acting or if the app tells you to or your sensor value are not where they need to be. I have over 100 flights and I think i'm calibrated less then 10 times.

Good luck!
