    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.
      Regards,
      Alexandre from Le CHOUKA.
