I received the prototype raspberry pi display hat from China last week. I have a manufacturing partner designing this specifically for Makerplane. I managed to get out to the Makerplane hangar to test it out today. It looks bright and crisp and can't wait to get it in the Cherokee and fly it!

    Excellent screen love it

  2. Excellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Feb 2021

    I searched far and wide for a bright Pi display. This is plenty bright to use in direct sun, reasonably priced, good size for my project, and the wide viewing angle and contrast are an added plus.

    I was able to get the touch functions working on the exceptionally reliable read-only piCore OS in short order.

  3. Universal problem solved 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jan 2021

    I've been working with Raspberries for years. Several times the need for a high brightness display has come up. What I've discovered is a very high price Is demanded, generally several hundred.

    I happened by Makerplane in a recent search and thought wow! The price seemed reasonable and the specs looked great. The display matches the form factor of other 5" displays I have purchased. I immediately placed my order.

    When it arrived, I plugged it into a Raspberry and using the sd card provided by Makerplane, I fired it up. It did not disappoint. A walk out into Florida sunlight at noon tested its mettle. No problem.

    I have found the need to replace the touchscreen driver when updating the Raspberry. John was very helpful and provide quick responses to my queries.

    I think there's a good market for this display and hope it might find its way onto Amazon or similar. I would recommend this display for anyone dealing with sunlight readable display needs.
