1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesDecent BuyPretty nice device. Seems to do everything I need it to do. A little hard for my eyes to see the display at times, you need to look at the screen at about a 45 degree angle to see it clearly, which I suppose is how it was designed (to sit on a desk in front of you) but would be nice if you could look at it straight on (like if you were in the cockpit). I also would like to see a better user manual, if not paper, something online would be nice. Maybe an online version is out there, but I haven't found it yet. Most functions are fairly intuitive but there are a few that I don't know. One last thing, when doing a calculation, the inputs "blink"...sometimes those are hard to see because they are blinking too fast and you can't tell what it's asking for unless you're looking very closely. It would be nice if you could shut this off. Not a problem when taking the knowledge test, but might make things difficult if you're trying to use in the cockpit. Maybe this device wasn't designed for the cockpit, who knows. I did also buy the iPad version of this and it's quite nice. Hope this review helps others make a good buying decision! Overall I like my E6B and am gonna keep it.April 20, 2020Purchased

Browse 22 questions Browse 22 questions and 43 answersWhat's the difference between this one and the Sporty's E6B one?Sporty's Electronic E6B Flight ComputerBEST ANSWER: From what I have read the sporty's is just an overall better product I have the cx-2 I have yet to use it very much but sometimes the calculations are off or wrong and it dose not have a backlight like the sportys I'll be sending my CX-2 back and ordering the sportysHello, can this be used on the Canadian PPL and CPL exams?BEST ANSWER: Yes, go to the following site: http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/opssvs/general-exams-computers-2011.htmIs there a big difference between a Sporty's 2008 version of the E6B vs. a current 2018 model?BEST ANSWER: Originally bought the Sportys, then returned it, its a pain to use so I returned it and bought the ASA, now that a real easy unit to use...ASA is the best.Is this LED or monochrome?BEST ANSWER: monochrome with a back lightIf I buy this you should give me the phone app for free. Right?Sporty's Electronic E6B Flight ComputerBEST ANSWER: The app is a separate purchase.Can you use this one for FAA exams?BEST ANSWER: Yes, I believe you can as this is an electronic version of the E6B computer (whiz wheel). I have'tn actually tried to do so myself, so I will add that caveat.how does the sportys e6b compare to the asa new cx3?Sporty's Electronic E6B Flight ComputerBEST ANSWER: In addition to what Eric C. provided, another really, REALLY cool feature is the ability to chose what type of unit you are inputting into that line for the calculation.
Say for example, you are provided two questions to calculate density altitude. One question provides the OAT in degrees Centigrade, the other in Fahrenheit. A simple button press of the "Set Unit" button will switch the type of unit for the input, and then do any required conversions in the background.
Another example is time. Say you were provided a question that says you fly for 26 minutes. Rather than going to calculator and doing 26 ÷ 60 to get the decimal time, just hit SET UNIT until minutes are shown on the far right, enter 26 and the orange square key to complete the input. The CX3 will do any required conversions in the background and compute the answer you're driving for.
Similar functional with the CONV UNIT key. If you put in that you are dealing with 40 gallons of fuel, but needed to know what it is in liters while remaining on the Fuel calculation page, just press CONV UNIT and it will compute the conversion on the fly without you leaving that page.Does this calculator do Cosine? The ATP has questions on Cosine PLUS everything else here.BEST ANSWER: I did not see a cos/sin function on the calculator. Your best bet is to remember the cos/sin chart conversions if you dont have a scientific calculator or use the one provided by the computer in the testing site.Hi, just wondering what WCA stands for on the display. I couldn't find it in the instruction manual. What does it stand for, or where can I find it? Thanks for your help.BEST ANSWER: WCA stands for wind correction angle.

After that, add or subtract the magnetic deviation to get the course heading that you should steer on your compass.Is this approved for EASA exams?BEST ANSWER: It is approved for FAA Knowledge test.
My students have used it w success.I see a lot of complaints in the reviews about the buttons.
