Pros: With limitations, functions as advertised Cons: Requires both hands to work. Very overpriced. Fair value would be closer to $7.00. It is only a two second aid at the kitchen table while flight planning. Print numbers too small to read in even slight turbulance When needed, a navigational aid should work as an aid, not a challenge. Product has a sound concept, but seems to be more interested in making money vs. assisting pilots.

Pros: shows pattern headings. Cons: Shows 45 degree entry but does not point to the heading numbers. You have to compute the reciprical. Requires two hands to turn the disk because both sides spin. You have to hold the middle disk with one hand and turn an outer disk with the other!

Pros: Exellent quick reference. Cons: Plotter turns easily on one side but is hard to turn on the opposite side. Poor manufacturing but I will still recommend it. It takes the guess work out of the traffic pattern.

Pros: As an older student this allowed me better situational awareness by allowing me to understand the runway and pattern orientation based upon my heading. The wheel is small and easy to use and fits in a flight bag with no problems. Cons: None to speak of.

Pros: simple to use as advertised. Cons: Needs a tab for the center wheel so as not to move the R/W heading numbers during adjustments. Good overall piece of gear to confirm headings for approach.
