A good product, built well and wont fail. easy to understand

  • By A Customer on Wednesday, December 12, 2012
  • Pros: Its correct every time, and dont fail. built well too
  • Cons: its a bit difficult to move the wheels at first, but you get the hang of it.
  • Review: I will give this 4 out of 5 stars because its a bit difficult to operate with one hand, you need two which can be a challenge in IFR. I read the previous reviews, and I dont see how this dont work unless people are using wrong or they updated it, because I went to my instrument ground school book, and looked up the holding entry questions, and this device calcaluted EVERY one of them correctly! its all plastic construction too, so maybe that was upgraded from cardboard. but it works, and even though you gotta get the knack of working the dials physically while in the air, its worth it. this is a must have tool for IFR. it dont fail, its right every time. for the price its a no brainer, buy one now. its easy to understand, set the heading, then rotate the red tab to the holding radial, and the red tab is residing in one of the 3 zones, parellel, teardrop, or direct. simple, and easy. no muss, no fuss.

Good practice tool

  • By A Customer from San Juan PR USA on Tuesday, January 13, 2009
  • Pros: Clear, easy to use, good memory aid
  • Cons: none
  • Review: It's a good tool to visualize entries. It helped me commit to memory the location of the different sectors and then mentally visualize them in the cockpit. Calling it a computer is a bit misleading it's really a memory aid.
