  • I recently bought 10 of these sensors for a project, and after testing all of them with my meter, I only got a reading between about 30kΩ and 35kΩ. This range is going to be very hard to work with for the project. Has anyone else been able to reach the alleged 50kΩ of resistance with these sensors? I have tried flexing in many different manners with all 10 of the sensors, but haven't come anywhere close to 50kΩ. It seems very unlikely that I would have gotten 10 defective sensors, so I must conclude that these sensors have some rudimentary design flaw.

No public wish lists :(
