Comment One of the few non-HP calculators that uses RPN! It looks quite simple but provides a surprisingly wide range of functions thru combinations of the "F", "inv" and "hyp"  keys.
The design is clunky and it is really slow, calculating 2 to the power of 3 takes about 3.5 seconds!
Apparently the most complex unit that Omron ever made.
This was the first real scientific calculator that it I owned. I always wanted to have a RPN unit and this one I could afford.
There was a similar unit SR10.
