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

Pros: It works and its quick, down and dirty. 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.

Pros: 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. Excelent alternative to what is in the POH.
