I bought it used for 500 NOK (about 85$). It is named UNITED, so if you google you will find it.

I just added the RVGS to my ground station . so nice to have tracking again. the RVGS is being powered off my ground stations two sealed lead acid 12AH batteries throu a plug I made with an old 3s balance plug that fits into the RVGS .

its the best damb system I have ever tried ! both tracking and diversity work better then most out there . the Happy killmore GS part of it we are still waiting on a up date for . and yes it only works with the RVOSD because thats what overlays the hidden line of video that it uses to send all the data.
diversity is so clean and tracking is right on target and can be very fast! pluse its as easy as 123 to set up and just fly.

Here is my humble effort completed today.

Only thing you can't see is a connector towards the base on the side of the case that I plug the Fatsharks into.

Final upgrade will be to transmit the 2.4 vid signal on to the goggs via 5.8Ghz. Sure will look odd having a case set down somewhere with a tracking antenna spinning on top!

I plan on doing led switches on my setup, I am curious... are you just using raw power being fed through it for the lighting? I've noticed some switches have separate leg for LED and some don't, also anyone have a good link for cheap led switches? Everywhere local is around $3 to $12 each.

No problem, its just 2 x 360 winch servos, one is hotglued to the side of the case. The other is hotglued onto the servo arm so it can be pushed on when setting up.

Plenty of power in them to move the antenna.
