    E6B's are still sold and still in use.  I prefer them to electronic calculators.
    You can buy them for $10-30 at any pilot shop and they come with directions.  Don't
    buy the plastic ones if you actually plan to fly with them -- it's only a matter of
    time before you leave them on a dashboard and they melt.
    
    The reality is that with modern electronic navigation, pilots almost never do
    drift calculations except when taking tests.  Can't remember the last time I
    did one.
