These simple to use instrument suction cup "bugs" are a great way to mark V-speeds, target altitudes, manifold pressure, RPM, or other important instrument indicators. The bugs are a clear suction cup with a yellow-tipped pointer that mounts to the face of any instrument. Allows you to quickly view important instrument information without obstructing your overall view of the instrument. A screw friction lock lets the yellow pointer tip rotate 360º both left and right. Simply move the pointer to the number you want to remember or visually quick-check. Completely portable which is especially useful when you are flying different aircraft. After flying, simply remove your "bugs" and take them with you. Now you're ready for whatever aircraft you fly next time.

Includes 2 bugs and a carrying case.

Does the job

  • By A Customer from Camp Hill PA USA on Wednesday, April 17, 2019
  • Pros:
  • Review: Bought these for my IFR training. Work well & I still use them post-checkride. They do tend to pop off every-other flight, as others have mentioned that the cup plastic is too stiff. I would disagree with other reviews though, they are appropriately sized and do not cover the gauge.

Needed accessory for IFR flying

  • By Jerry W from California on Monday, March 12, 2018
  • Pros: great tool to remember assigned or minimum altitudes
  • Review: Good product and a needed reminder when flying IFR, one less instruction to remember, my only wish is that the suction cup was smaller

  • Verified Purchase

Works as described

  • By Harry on Saturday, February 03, 2018
  • Pros: cost, utility
  • Review: Great price, pretty slick for older avionics that don't have built in bugs.

cheap gadget

  • By John from Wichita Falls TX USA on Wednesday, September 10, 2014
  • Pros: none
  • Review: just junk...don't waste your time or money...did not fit too well on the instruments and covered up some of the numbers I wanted to see

Good idea badly implemented

  • By Piper Lance from Grinnell IA USA on Tuesday, August 26, 2014
  • Pros: Altitude bug is most useful for IFR flight if the plane does not have a sophiscticated auto pilot. Eliminates the need to write down altitude instructions.
  • Review: I had previously made my own bugs and wanted to try something more precisely made. However, the screw used to retain the actual bug would not retain its tension and the bug kept falling apart. I think I will have to spend more money on a better designed bug.

nice reminders

  • By Stephen from McMinnville OR USA on Monday, August 05, 2013
  • Pros:
  • Review: They're a bit bulky, but certainly are handy for reminders as to altitude.

    Pleased to have them, as they are very sturdy and should last forever.

  • Verified Purchase

A wise buy

  • By Lionel Lee from Watertown NY USA on Wednesday, November 28, 2012
  • Pros:
  • Review: They work as advertised but it turns out that a couple of my instruments were too small. Make sure you know the diameter of the instrument upon which you intend to mount the devices.
