Have not used it that much lately but seems to work great. Much prefer it over the old whiskey compass.

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.

Make sure you have Falcon Gauge Model No MCVC-2L-A, which is better and improved for composite and matel airplanes, and real product match this picture.
