New Product
New 2.4 Ghz Ground Station with integrated Vrx and Patch antenna

Hi guys,
I have to mention at the beginning that all credits are due to Hauntme13 @ Cercom Technology LLC.

http://www.cercomtechnology.com/

Few days ago I become a very happy owner of their product.
The Ground Station Module and integrated patch antenna with video receiver.

I guess I just cut to the chase and post some pictures.
For any very specific questions you can always refer to the above site.

Quick test trying few combination and all works great
Since I tested in a garage I did not see the point to hook up two antennas for diversity but that is coming soon ( tomorrow if it get bit warmer). I was just fascinated with this thing that I simply forgot to do it.

interesting.
I wonder if they will make an adapter for other receivers to the diversity unit?
So audio, video and power are supplied on the lan cable.

Now I have a huge case so I can load up pretty much everything in there,
Camera, DVR, Goggles (aha!!) all the cables ( not so many anymore) all antennas and so on.

Yep,
The cable you can see on the pix above is just a temp job but adapters are coming soon. Check the web site from time to time there will be more surprises.
Hopefully just for Christmas

Yep, ONE cable.
U can use the station for a single VRx or diversity, then you still have only two cables to each VRx. No more cable spiderwebs.
Flight test is coming hopefully soon. ( got to do it before I freeze here)
I will post it all here.
