Online service was great. Pricing seems pretty steep. The ASI itself seems pretty nice. I really cant give an honest review because I wont have the aircraft in the air until this coming summer. I am disappointed that an instrument this pricey is made in China.
Failed from day 1 and manufacturer refused to warranty. They claimed improper handling/usage. Im an experienced kit builder, +10yr A&P, experience across the industry. It was handled properly and failed. Spend a little more and get quality.
I had ordered one about 14 months ago and installed it in my ultralight. The airspeed indicator worked fine and I was very pleased until it quit 14 months later, shortly after the 1 year warranty. I called the company described the issue and they said it was a blown diaphragm. They stated even if it would have been under a year it a blown diaphragm would not be covered under warranty anyways. They said I must have had a bug in the pitot tube. I checked that out and tube was clean. Ive heard other people have had good luck with them. Perhaps I got a defective one???
