Absolutely worthless. Off by more then 30 degrees in some directions. Attempted to calibrate and can make accurate at North, but then off by 30 or more degrees over a 90 degree span. Unusable and is being removed from my aircraft.

The hardware that is supplied is cheap and not aviation quality. What appears to be nylock are substandard Chinese copies that do not lock.

Q&A

Q: What are the dimensions and depth for the Skysports Vertical Card Compass?

The Skysports Vertical Card Compass is designed for a 2 cutout and its depth is 2 inches.

Q: Can the Skysports Vertical Card Compass be mounted in the panel?

While it technically can fit, we do not recommend mounting it in a panel due to magnetic interference.

Q: I am building a homebuilt and using a wood panel to mount the instruments. Can I mount the compass on the panel with the rest of the instruments then?

You can but please know the compass is a very susceptible instrument to magnetic interference and is should always be mounted far away from other gauges and avionics

Q: If I am going to use the vertical compass in the Philippines which Hemisphere should I choose in the select button when ordering?

As the Philippines are north of the equator a Northern Hemisphere compass would be the correct choice.

Q: Should the compass be installed absolutely vertical using the face as reference or can it be off by say, 5 to 10 degrees as when mounting it on the panel?

It is recommended to mount this compass as vertical as possible without tilt.

Q: Does placing the Skyports panel mount compass (kerosene type) in the mount make a difference with the electrical magnetic interference?

Yes, while it technically can fit, we do not recommend mounting it in a panel due to magnetic interference.

No, Skysports instruments are not FAA Approved. They are intended for use in experimental aircraft only.

Q: Which of the coloured adjusting screws is for the North / South adjustment and which is for the East / West?
