Default Side pocket

Anything inherently wrong with this idea? Fits my IPad in a Otter case.

A bad loop or some turbulence could cause things to fly around a little.
Mabel some kind of latching cover or at least a keeper to keep the IPad in its place.

Thought about that. Maybe Velcro straps?

I (and many others) have metal bins very similar to that. They quickly collect so much stuff that they are jammed full, and nothign will come flying out.....

Very useful, and a good use of the space.

Default I am in the middle of cockpit construction.

Does this mean that the arm rest is not very useful? I have seen bins below the armrest, but not above.

My arms aren't long enough to make use of a rest. Might as well make a cubby to hoard stuff

Looks like a good spot to me. I don't see anything wrong with location. The best part is you can always change it if you don't like it.

Default Arm rests

Seems like a good idea. I wonder if you could install arm rests inside of your vertical? I have noticed that the arm rests in the -8 are too far apart to be very useful for me.

My arm rests on my thigh all the time - I'd have to have arms like an orangutan to use the arm rests!

If you have arms like an orangutan..

Paul is absolutely correct on stuffing so full you can't get stuff out..

They are handy.
