Easiest E6B to use
I especially like the wind side of the computer, no pencil marking, just spin the wind dial, and get wind correction angle and ground speed.
I keep it for a back-up, in case the electronics quit (i-pad).

To tell the truth, I used the instruction booklet to assist me in operating the E6B electronic calculator, I'm new to flying & the examples in the booklet allowed me to practice & check my answers, both great products, Thanks Paul

Improved E6-B
The wind speed cursor is a user friendly and valuable improvement over the classic E6-B pencil dot procedure. So glad I got this. Once you get used to using it there is no turning back

E6B Computer
I received in on time. It works well but I would change the name from computer to manually. Reason is if it's a computer the electronic version is more suitable. My class requires the manual version which I compare it to the old slide rule before calculators.

Very nice, like the no-pencil feature
I looked at several of these. I bought the fiberboard one from my FBO to get started, then I looked at a friend's Jeppesen, which was really nice. But I decided on this unit because I like the idea of not possibly needing to find/drop a pencil if I'm figuring crosswind corrections. Now I'll probably in reality be using an electronic E6B when I actually have my pilot's certificate, but as they say, the batteries never run out on these whizzy wheels... so it'll always be with me as a backup.

Pros: I've been using E6B since forever... and the new small ruler for the wind is an excelent and convinient feature. Cons: Even though is metal.. keep your screw at bay and use the case

Pros: This computer provides a great improvement in determining the effect of wind on the flight track. The moveable, color coded arm greatly simplifies the wind triangle solution. Although more expensive than other E6B computers, it's worth the extra money. The size makes it primarily a training device for new pilots and for that purpose it's excellent.

This is a great take on the E6B wind correction. No need for a dot; simply select your wind-speed and wind direction without an additional turn of the ring, and without finding a pencil and making a tiny dot in a moving cockpit. Very clever. Colors make use easier.

Pros: Say to goodbye to dots! It works just as advertised and very easy to learn to use it. When I first received it I used it marking the dots and then compared quickness using the wind arm cursor. It worked just as advertised. Once you positioned the wind cursor in place you get all of your readings instantly. I wished I had it when I started out as a student. I am very glad I am doing away with dots!
