After overwhelming positive feedback, we have decided to move forward with the Bravo Center Console for Mouse & iPad Mini (for Bravo Throttle Quadrant).
We listened to all your suggestions and tried to incorporate as many of them as possible. The stowaway function rotates horizontally right, so you can leave your mouse on the pad when not in use (depending on mouse size).
We're currently in the prototype phase and don't have a final price or release date yet, but since no electronics are involved, the process from here on shouldn't be too long. The key thing is to test rigidity and long term endurance of the materials and structural integrity under stress.
We'll keep you posted on the progress.
