The microRecorder is a very popular product due to its low cost, small size, and the portability made possible by its built-in battery. It is perfect for use in a soaring club or for recorder flights for submission to the OLC (Online Contest), or for use in a soaring contest. It is available with an engine noise sensor version, (standard units may be upgraded at a later date).

The microRecorder is ideal for driving PDAs, as well as providing full NMEA gps data at a variety of update rates and a pressure sentence, it will, if connected to a 12 volt supply, provide a 5 volt supply for the PDA, using a highly efficeint dc/dc convertor.

The internal battery will enable the unit to carry on recording even if the glider battery fails, but at the end of your flight the microRecorder will then detect if the glider is not moving, and switch off automatically.

New - microRecorder SD with optional built-in SD Memory Card.
This is a very cool version of the microRecorder - perfect for use at sites that don't have a PC handy. The microRecorder 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 airport. The EWUSER.TXT file includes setup data such as recording interval and task declaration data such as pilot name, glider ID, and task waypoints.
The SD flash card is included with each microRecorder SD.

This option will be particularily popular in 2 scenarios.

* 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 airport 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.
* 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.
