This e6b is definitely accurate. The only problem I had with it was that the pasteboard is too slick to be able to rotate the non-wind side with fingers alone. I was using a fingernail by inserting it into one of the cutouts to rotate the wheel at first, but eventually glued a screw cover onto the rotating part of the card for a gripper. Any round object will do, just so it is small enough to not cover up any figures on the card. It rotates with ease now using the round plastic screw cover. After I get my certificate, I will most likely get some kind of electronic flight computer, so getting an expensive manual e6b didn't make any sense.

spring for a metal version
This product is almost impossible to use with one hand. I have not tried to use in flight, but it seems to be useful only on the ground while doing planning.

Pros: Price, and it's easy to read the numbers. Cons: Difficult to "spin" the wheel one-handed as it is very slick. It would be good for classroom or for practice, but not so good for use in the cockpit. Wanted to use it as a backup to the electronic one, and thought the numbers would be easier on older eyes, but unable to use one-handed so will go back to my aluminum one.

Pros: Good value, easy to read, and comes with a good instruction book with sample problems. Cons: The wheel is a little difficult to turn, probably because it is new and not broken in yet, also because it is fiberboard. That should be expected though. If it is that big of a deal, then spend the extra bucks and buy the metal one. I have an electronic E-6B but wanted this to truly learn how to use it and as a back up. I think it is a good value and well worth the money to keep in your flight bag!

A little hard at the beginning but once you start using it, it gets a lot better. Great quality for its price!

Pros: Lightweight, inexpensive. Cons: Inaccurate, difficult to turn the wheels when new. I used to have one of these during flight training 20 years ago. It used to be a good product, the new one I just purchased is not. The Crosswind side of the card is printed off center making it useless. The TAS calculations are off compared to my other E6Bs. This computer will cause a nightmare for the student pilot. I own both a Sporty's electronic E6B and several E6B apps for my Kindle Fire. I planned to keep this as an emergency backup. That won't happen now because it's just too inaccurate.

Pros: I have several metal wiz wheels I have accumulated over the years but I like this one better. You don't need a book; everything you need to know is on the E6B somewhere. It's light, inexpensive and easy to use. I'd recommend it to any student. I bought this one to replace the one I had; it was borrowed by my son, never saw it again. I just got an electronic one with my Sporty's IFR course but haven't used it yet. Cons: No down side. I buy everything from Sporty's now as long as the price is competitive because of the 1 year money back/product exchange option. I've gotten stuck with some real expensive stuff from others that I didn't get to use until after the time ran out (typically 30 to 90 days) Inexpensive enough to easily replace.
