Seems that a dversity controller can be issued faster than an osd

In fact its a single PCB will all pieces already soldered. There will be 8 connectors ( servo connector, and servo wire are included).

Youre right, I could take it in steps. I could just grab this and a second set of RX/patch antenna and have a nice system already.

Guys, is it fair to hijack this thread that started as a free offer to the community to promote sales of others' product?

i talk about a component that will help somebody to build is own diversity controller. Whats the problem?
anyway, enough for me here I will start a new post when the product will be ready to sale an let this DIY product take is place.
By the way, its a really great idea to use the RSSI Pin of each receiver for those who want to do the mod.

I say anything goes when you're "stickin it to the man".
The prices diversity are asking for their oracles seem a bit monopolized,
they could do with some stiff competition from the average radioshack joe to take em down a peg.
But thats just my opinion.

no, its normal that oracles is more expensive, because it switch both left and right audio chanel, and have a case designed for the diversity,...have Rca connector, and the duo diversity have Rx integrated. ...its not the same "kind" of things.

Well who wants to pay 150 bucks extra for a fancy box and your motor growling at you in stereo? Not me!

Just saying. :P

Yes. There's not much too a diversity controller. It's really simple which is why I built one for myself rather than forking out the $170 or whatever they cost.

If he posts his schematic, then I think it's all good If not, well, he should have started a new thread. This is about building your own OSD from free plans. HairEdo's project is certainly acceptable. I really hope it works out.

I think it is okay too. Its available for others to build with plans, but for those that would fail in building it, his is "offering" to build for us for a price.

I think this is the right place to order via parts or pre-soldered parts. If you are a person who does not have good soldering skills or does not want to build the device there is now a perfectly good option to buy a more expensive pre-soldered PCB version. This thread is about providing a diversity controller for a great price whether you build you own from provided plans or you buy a prebuilt version.

Hats off to both of you for taking the time and effort to do this project and provide it to the rest of us.

Thank you very much.
