2 months agoDurability3 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?YesA bit flimsySince it's a replica of the E6B used for many years successfully, it's every bit as accurate as E6Bs have always been. I like most of the durability of this instrument except it needs to be a little more ridged on the inner dial both with wind correction as well as the computer side. But I am still glad I chose it.February 28, 2019Purchased

10 months agoWould You Recommend?NoSpend more, get moreSorry but this E-6B is not worthy to be included in Sporty's catalog, in my opinion. The wind scale had a crease when it showed up which was an indication of the poor quality of materials. An E-6B should be built to last a career. I should have spent the extra money and done it right.August 30, 2018Purchased

over 2 years agoDurability4 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value5 / 5SufficientThis 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.March 5, 2017Durability2 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use2 / 5Value1 / 5spring for a metal versionThis 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.February 9, 2017Reliability4 / 5Performance2 / 5Ease Of Use2 / 5Value3 / 5Pros: 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.December 31, 2014Durability4 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Pros: 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!December 4, 2013
