Hey, I have an idea for a project which uses and accelerometer. In order to buy one I looked around on different online dealers like rhydolabz, robokits etc. The usual prices are upwards of 500Rs. It seems a bit steep for my one off project. The usual chip used by these sensors is a MMA8451Q which when I checked on kits n' spares is just Rs 95 or 105 with taxes. But there are two problems, one, its a QFN package which would be really hard to solder and two, Kits n' spares charges 150Rs in shipping which is ridiculous. I am okey with smd soldering, but haven't tried to solder a QFN package (it looks hard too).
If any of you guys have any idea how I can solve this problem please help.
