PIC 16F887 MCU
PIC 16F887 MCU
Offered by Cool Components Ltd
Price: 4.16

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective microcontroller at a good price, 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PIC 16F887 MCU (Electronics)
The PIC16F877 is supported by the sdcc 'C' compiler and 'gputils' software (I prefer Linux to Windows) and runs at up to 20 MHz, is largely compatible with the 877 and other PIC devices but is significantly cheaper.
Since the device is in a dual in line package it is particularly suited to prototyping and experimentation, as it will fit breadboards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stout materials, cool back, 14 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This "daypack" seems to be well made, the design holds the bag off the back so the ventilation keeps my back more or less dry, and the included rain-cover keeps the whole thing dry in pouring rain. It has large side pockets ideal for carrying snacks and drinks, and an internal pocket useful for maps, wallet or whatever.

The size is adequate for my waterproof clothing, camera and GPS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb quality video, 9 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The quality of the video produced is very high. I can well believe it is broadcast quality.

The only downside is that converting the video from one file type to another takes 5 times the length of the video! That however is just because of the file size, reflecting the resolution, frame rate and quality.

I would certainly recommend the camera to any glider pilot - except they already know how good it is!


GoPro Flat Adhesive Mounts for HERO Cameras

Price: 19.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Adhesive mounts used in sailplane, 9 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The mounts arrived quickly and are as described. I have used them to mount my GoPro HD Hero3 camera in any one of three gliders. They stick very well to the varnished wood finish of the mounting blocks I made, and I have tried them out successfully.

They and the camera impressed me.

The memory stick works perfectly as expected on Linux and Windows, looks good and as far as I can tell appears to be rugged enough for everyday use.
