The clock has all of the features I need. I do think it is overpriced considering I can get an apple watch for less. And it is larger than I expected. Again, my apple watch can detect afib and is a 20th the size!
This is the second SC-5 clock I have used in my aircraft (Archer II of 20+ years). The first lasted well over 10 years, but began behaving oddly. I suspect the battery was giving out, and it cannot be replaced by the user. If this one lasts as long it will make it to the end of my flying career. As another reviewer mentioned there is no time change except by switching master off and on. A couple of minor changes could have made this a five star clock.
An excellent product and excellent service of Aircraftspruce delivered timely to meet the expectations.
Work as advertised, but my problem is in order to change the time displayed requires power off, two buttons depressed, then reset. Surely the designers could have come up with a better way of doing this.
This is a great clock and a lot of features for the money, very well made!
Great little gauge. Only the timer function wired (I did not need anything else beside to use it as a fuel timer). Went bad less than a year and 47 hours of flying.
Everything it is supposed to do works fine.
Installed this to replace the OEM clock in a Cessna 150. Works great and easy to see.
Had this installed in a Piper Cherokee 180C. Love the little clock. Works great.
The SC-5 has a built in battery and does not draw any power while the aircraft master is off. Once the avionics bus is turned on it will draw 0.3 amps to run.
It will keep time when the master switch is off but will not show time when the master switch is off so not to drain the aircraft battery.
No. The engine time will only display when power is supplied to the instrument.
