    An excellent product. SO good that I bought an extra one for my van.

    Perfectly sized. I used the Velcro mount to place it in my flight deck. The internal compass ball is easy to read and rotates freely over a wide range of angles. I am really pleased that I finally have a really good compass for my flight deck.

    This is my second compass from these guys. I have the riser mount version. Firstly – I love it because I like to have small light ‘minimalist’ kit. However….Most modern risers are thinner than the width that the mount could take AND so the ‘extra’ width of the mount simply acts as a line catcher. It isn’t really a problem on take off because I’m checking my lines before launching but messing about with ground handling it has snagged a few times and practicing in strong winds is what broke my first one.

    I purchased a compass for my paraglided riser but ordered the wrong one, quick email to notify them and it was done .. no issues
    The compass itself seems robust enough for the job in hand and works as it should

    The compass works well and can easily handle 45degrees of inclination, and easily mounted with velcro tab.
    However I was very disappointed in this compass, by the fact that the compass card is designed to be viewed directly from above.
    When mounted on a flight deck the compass is viewed from an almost horizontal position and for example if you wanted to fly north you need to look at the south reading on the compass card. The compass card needs to be printed in reverse as if you need to use quickly you should not need to convert northwest to southeast for example.

      Hello Roger,
      We are sorry that the compass does not fully satisfy you. Indeed the compass is printed as classic compasses, meaning that the direction you are headed to is the one in front of the compass. During the compass copnception we conducted a survey and this orientation was preferred by most pilots.
