The Falcon Vertical Card compass is a non-liquid type compass. It is designed using a new concept which eliminates leaking. With a 2" vertical dial which is compared to a miniature airplane to present the magnetic heading of the aircraft at all times, heading information is more natural and easy to read presentation and see the complete 360º dial. 90º±5 vertical mount.
Can be purchased with or without mounting bracket, with or without 12VDC Lighting, and in Northern or Southern hemisphere orientation.
It is what it says it is. It cannot be mounted right or left.
I suppose it could be 5 stars if they were clearer about the mount. This is a glareshield mount only, you will have to fabricate your own overhead mount if you want/need one. I have an RV-10 and was installing on the center support bar not with his mount.
