Almost impossible to measure and get the correct diameter
This works as advertised but after painstakingly careful measurements i still got it wrong. I'd say the odds are 50/50 regarding whether you'll order the correct size. That's because there are two to choose from...

Pros: Easy to set Cons: Moving one pointer can make the other slip I use this on my Altimeter in a 172P as I can set an intermediate and minimum altitude (100's) separately. Also handy to set 1000's and 100's in cruise flight.

Pros: I use them for altitude reminders and they work great. They are easy to use and very professional and unobtrusive looking when installed. Cons: They are a little expensive. Try one, they work great!

Pros: I selected this bug rather than the three pointer bug because the two pointers move independent of each other. I can set the green pointer on my assigned altitude and the red on an MDA or other minimum altitude. With the three bug unit if one pointer moves, they all move.

Pros: I use it on altimere. It does not cover up instrument like the ones with suction cup. Cons: expensive for what you get. The two dots do not move independantly. You set one, other one slides too. I have to keep one finger on one dot while moving other to avoid slipping. I would recommed this product. Overall does what it is supposed to be. Not used long enough to rate durability.

Pros: Product fit into existing airspeed indicator as promised. Fit and finish of product is good. I expect it will function just fine for its intended use. Cons: Appears to be very expensive for what you get. There is just not much of a product here. I think I would have a difficult time spending $50 to manufacture this item. This is a good $10 item. The airspeed bugs tend to move on their own and moving one airspeed bug somehow causes the other to move at times. Being a one-of-a-kind item, I guess we will just have to pay the price and move on. Sporty's quick shipping and customer service continue to be outstanding.

Pros: Extremely useful. I am taking instrument lessons and this bug is critical. My brother, a 20,000 hour freightdog, said that they have used these types of bugs for 20 years and everyone should have one. Cons: A little bit loose or sloppy in feel when moving the bugs. But you learn to compensate quickly. Overall, a necessity. A good product.
