The problem with the Sporty's device is that the screen is hard to read. Though backlit, it is old display tech. It is hardd enough to read on the ground when doing your flight planning, but doing on-the-fly calculations in flight is all but impossible.

1 month agoDurability1 / 5Reliability2 / 5Performance1 / 5Ease Of Use1 / 5Value1 / 5Would You Recommend?NoDisappointed in quality and performanceThings I disliked: Can't clear memory registers. Can't return to menu without our turning off and then on again. Never 100% sure calculations did not include data that I was unable to delete. Buttons are horrible and if you mistype you need to turn off calculator and restart. Menu is a pain, hard to choose which function you need, and everything is abbreviated so you are never sure if you have the right function... as if we need more abbreviations in flying. The quality is equivalent to a $5.00 drug store calculator. I may be overstating the quality. If you do get it, invest in some reading glasses so you can read the tiny fonts for the conversion functions and the manual.July 1, 2019Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?YesWorks well enoughI used this for FAA tests because I can’t use my iPhone app. It works fine, but I prefer the iPhone app. Outside of the FAA test environment, I doubt I’ll be using this. Yet it’s kind of a necessity for the test, so I’d still recommend.June 24, 2019Purchased

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.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. It will be a positive or negative number, add or subtract this number from the magnetic course to get your magnetic heading. After that, add or subtract the magnetic deviation to get the course heading that you should steer on your compass.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.Is this approved for EASA exams?BEST ANSWER: It is approved for FAA Knowledge test.
