The microRecorder is a very popular product due to its low cost, small
size, and the portability made possible by its built-in battery, which
gives up to 100 hours of battery life. It is perfect for use in both
a soaring club and for individuals, to record badge claims, flights
for submission to the OLC (Online Contest), or for use in a soaring
contest. It comes standard with Engine noise detection and a SD card
is ideal for driving PDAs. It provides full NMEA GPS data including
a pressure sentence, at a variety of update rates. It has a highly efficient
voltage adaptor and when connected to a 12 volt supply will provide
5 volts to power your PDA. At the same time the internal battery will
When powered externally
the microRecorder will switch on automatically, but if the glider battery
fails, the internal battery will enable the unit to carry on recording.
At the end of your flight, after external power is removed, the microRecorder
will detect that the glider is not moving, and switch off automatically.
Charging is via
the USB cable or using the optional mains charger.
The microRecorder SD will leave an extra copy of the flight files on
an SD flash card, which can then be removed and transferred to a computer
The microrecorder SD can read pilot, glider, setup and task data from
the SD card at power-up and can also write one or all flight logs to
the SD card at power-down. That makes it possible to save the "EWUSER.TXT"
configuration file onto an SD card at home and use it in a club owned
or rental microRecorder at the airfield. The EWUSER.TXT file includes
setup data such as recording interval and task declaration data such
as pilot name, glider ID, and task waypoints.
* In a club environment
it will be possible for club members to bring their personal SD card
to the airport for use with the club's microRecorder. They can come
to the airfield with their pilot, glider and task data already on the
SD card and they can go home with their day's flight log on their SD
card - all without the use of a PC.
can be permanently mounted in the glider for extra security.
* Contest pilots will like the ability to download their most recent
flight log to the SD card without the need for a PC. They can then hand
the contest scorer the SD card rather than their precious flight recorder.
