  • This particular product does not actually line up with the conductive ribbon sold as its compliment. The ribbon must be pushed and pulled slightly to get crimped right. Use your pliers to crimp the teeth down, then use fingers to gently close the plastic casing. (If you use pliers on the casing the plastic tabs break.) SparkFun should sell the female connectors too. Had to pull the pins out of one side, it was a messy and delicate process, but it works for now. Overall, this product seems OK. Haven’t tested connectivity and resistance of the the ribbon+FC combo, hope for the best.

No public wish lists :(
