3 months agoPerformance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesSo Far So Good!I've had this unit for a few days now and I'm getting the hang of it, slowly. Not the units fault, mine, I'm slow and just getting started with flight instruction.
I cannot comment od Durability, Reliability or Value on such short use of the unit.
I think it is quite useful and a good tool for aviation planning.March 15, 2019Purchased
2 weeks agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat E6Bthis is very intuitive to use. I have a CX3 flight computer also and the Sporty's is much easier to use and I do not have to refer to the manual every time I use it like the CX3. I feel the screen visibility could be improved considerably as it is difficult to read at certain angles and in the sunlight. This is where the CX3 shines! I would recommend this product without hesitation. I can't rate the durability or reliability yet since I have only used it for a month.March 10, 2019Purchased

1 month agoOverall seems great device. The print on the instructions is on the small side. I already have the app on my iPhone so combo should be great. I would recommend getting both @ time of order. Haven’t used it enough to comment on durability etcFebruary 21, 2019Purchased

Only does basic math functions. Would give 5 stars if it had square root function!February 21, 2019Purchased
1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesFlight computerHaven’t gotten a chance to use it yet bet as a beginner student pilot I feel like it will be very useful. Based off of other reviews sounds like it should be a nice tool of good qualityFebruary 12, 2019Purchased
1 month agoWould You Recommend?YesI am someone that has always struggled with math. I had little confidence that I would be able to pass the formulas and calculations required in the FAA test. With E6B I think I’ll be able to pass.February 5, 2019Purchased
1 month agoPerformance2 / 5Ease Of Use2 / 5Value1 / 5Fix your buttons!I gave it a three because it’s easy to figure out and it’s quick to calculate what I need. But the buttons are garbage and difficult to push accurately. I bought it for my Commercial written exam and I have to watch the screen as I push because it’s so inconsistent whether or not what I push will show up on the screen. It’s a 5 for ease of calculating all the functions and a big zero for buttons and entering data. Way over priced but better than the manual e6b for sure.February 1, 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.Tem tradução para Potuguês / Brasil?BEST ANSWER: Please resubmit your question in english.Are the keys also backlit for dusk and night operations?BEST ANSWER: No, The keys are not backlit.can you send it to Europe or Turkey?
