looks like an excellent platform to build up a ground station from. Nicer than the Walmart attache case I use.

Agreed. Given the price I paid for my monitor, the case, and all the little parts and pieces I bought to make my own GS, I could have bought this for around the same price.

Now, lets hope it comes back in stock soon!

A few bucks more in the USA warehouse. Looks good but is still kind of pricey for what you get. I just built my own similar ground station using a 9" Screen, dvr & harbor freight and am into it for about $130: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2031607

I just pulled the trigger on one; it should be here next week.

...then I looked at all my HK orders and about had a heart attack when I calculated the amount of money I spent on 20 orders since 2011. Is there an emoticon for chest pain?

I know what you mean. I'm well over $1000 in totals. Too much for a college student

I did the same after my last order with them the other week. I thought to myself:
"Oh boy i better not let my wife see this page!"

Has anyone else already got this? Mine is on the way and I am super curious if this monitor has the blue screen affect.

going for some testing tomorrow. First impressions are excellent and with one battery and my video Rx, I was installed and up and receiving video in just a moment. It was too easy and the quality is nice. I will write it all up later, but it is a solid unit.

My fpv quad is down right now and extensive testing has been on hold; but a few guys are flying tomorrow and I am going to pick up their video
