    This is helpful without referring to the POH. It is quick and easy to use.

    Cons

    It is a cardboard wheel with a plastic coating. Not sure how durable this will be kicking around in the flight bag.

    General Comments

    I thought the construction would have been better in a durable plastic.

    Simple to use for the one thing it is designed for. Headwind/crosswind components.

    Makes you think more about what to expect for take offs and landings.

    Cons

    Instead of heavy duty coated paper. For the price, it could have been made of more durable plastic.

    General Comments

    Serves the purpose for what it is designed.

    Bought it as a quick visual aide and backup for the electronic computer. Heck its so fast and I can use one hand, that I don't use the flight computer when I need a crosswind/headwind calc anymore.

    Just cardboard. Not even lamanated. I was disappointed for $12.95. Add to that an additional $7.50 in shipping and I think I'll go elsewhere.

    Much better than the crosswind calculator on my kneeboard or in POH. Simple to use.

    Cons

    A bit flimsy. Would like to see instructions on calculator rather than on small slip of paper that I have now lost.

    General Comments

    Excelent alternative to what is in the POH.
