Has anyone heard about “Wingbugs”


Recommended Posts

I’ve just been reading about ‘Wingbugs’ and they sound like an excellent idea. I can’t find any reviews on them though.  A few of my instruments are showing their age (compass, ASI, stall warning), and thought this might make a good accurate second six pack set.

If anyone has used it I would love to know how good it is, would you go that way again, and any other thoughts. Here’s the link if anyone hasn’t seen them before. www.wingbug,com thanks

I would just make sure my ASI was in good order, and that you can fly safely without reference to it (attitude, wind noise). The wingbug seems like a nuisance: expense, drag, needing to open an app - in a semi emergency when you should be flying by attitude - to use it, struggling to read the ASI on the app, replacing the battery every 12 hours. REPLACING THE BATTERY EVERY 12 HOURS. 

 

Disclaimer: I have a massive 134 hrs.

APenNameAndThatA thanks, was hoping to get one or two others thoughts. Sometimes what sounds great when you first read about it doesn’t look so good after you get a few other opinions.  Cheers
