For Sale: Event38 Bluetooth Bridge Telemetry (915MHz)

I have a like new Bluetooth Bridge telemetry setup for sale. Instead of using an OTG USB adapter to connect your 3DR telemetry radio, you can connect wirelessly through Bluetooth to your Android phone or PC/Mac/Linux. It's incredibly handy if you don't like wires and definitely worth using, however, I don't use it all that often so it's going up for sale.The system includes a 1000mAh LiPo to power the Bluetooth radio, telemetry radio, and will also charge via USB.
