Are you attempting to construct a frame, box, table top or turning blank?
When I do frames, boxes or table tops, I use an adjustable arm on a shooting board to ensure all pieces match.
If your trying to make a template, lay out a complete hex on pattern stock, cut it in half point to point, that should leave at least 4 chances to cut one perfect pie shaped piece.

Lacking a table or miter saw, a fine tooth hand saw will make precisiion cuts.

Hand in there, you’ll meet the challenge.
