it works for me

  • By Jess T from Soldotna AK USA on Thursday, January 08, 2015
  • Pros: good trans/receive, gps
  • Cons: screen easily scratched, software
  • Review: Bought this for airband and gps for my plane.  Works for me.  Software is ok and instructions are incomplete, but once you figure it out... it's ok.  Screen can be scratched and has to be protected.   Otherwise... radio works great.

  • By Bob from Keene CA USA on Wednesday, July 08, 2015
  • Review: I am a first time user of a hand held Nav-Com so i will not be a good candidate to do any review, but around Bakersfield CA the Yaesu product is preferred.
    The unit is complex and has a great selection of options and Fetchers! i like them but a little green on how to use them.
    Is there a training DVD available explaining the fetchers for this FTA-750L NAV-COM? If so i would like to have one?
    Thank you
    Bob

Incredibly Sophisticated

  • By BenLA from Whiteman Airport LA on Thursday, April 29, 2021
  • Pros: Fully loaded Nav-Comm, VOR w/GS and GPS
  • Cons: Hard to get through all the pages quickly to find what you need.
  • Review: I bought this HT several months ago because my plane doesn't have much in the way of classic avionics - no VOR receivers, GS, etc., only a 25-year-old Garmin text GPS. I use ForeFlight for navigation, but iPads can overheat, etc. So...I thought this fully loaded HT would be a great backup - VOR receiver, Glideslope, GPS, plus of course COMM. That's the good stuff. But the problem is it's so loaded with everything that you'd better study it well while still at your desk, save all the freqs you think you'll need, and then learn how to access them quickly in flight, especially if you're suddenly lost or your onboard nav gear fails. You'll need to flip on the autopilot (hope you have one) or fly with your knees while figuring out how to use the HT in a tense situation. Better yet, take a flying partner. It's certainly worth the price, but get read up on it before you need it!
