Works like a charm
It does what I need it to. It’s a little difficult to rotate sometimes and I got an app on the iPad that is a little easier to use for instrument training, but this is great for what it is, and to keep as a backup in case my electronics are out.

Holding Pattern Computer: Not always easy to use
Really great for visualizing entering a holding pattern. Only problem is the red tab used for positioning. Its stiff. So when flying this may become problematic and can become a 2 handed operation.

good quality
I too thought at first the price was a little high for this item. It is plastic but it is good quality. I can foresee this lasting a really long time and I'm glad I got it.

Pros: Overall its a good product, helps someone like me who thinks a bit slowly and gets me into the holding pattern easily. Cons: I think it lacks some information which i would find usfull, such as a line to indicate the direction of entry for a teardrop, and a line to indicate the location of the ABEAM. Overall its a good product and i had just to fix for myself a couple of more markings to make it 100% perfect for me.

Pros: All pros and no cons. The product does what it is designed to PLUS it makes thing graphiclly simple and easy to understand. That is much better than "Rod Whatever is Name" on MicroSoft Flight Sim 4. This instructor acts like a rattle brain and doesn't have the ability to make anything clear. He even tell you to turn in oposite directions in a holding pattern contrary to the visual box above and the actual written portion of the lesson itself. But this little holding pattern wheel makes everything plain. That's a valuable aide and every student should have one.

Great visual aide for teaching holding pattern entry. If you can't get them to understand holding pattern entry with this visual aide, you never will.

Can u explain to me how and if this can be used on unpublished holds?

BEST ANSWER: You would align the current heading and select the radial you are to hold on. Using the side for the correct turns it will give you your entry.
