Compare Flying Instruments

Be sure you buy the right instruments. Budget is of course a concern but make sure you get one that does what you need it to do....and ONLY what you need it to do. You want it to be as intuitive and feature-ritch for what you need it to do. Otherwise, it can distract you from your real goal...enjoying your flight!
