Nice setup but holy wow, 4300.00 USD is going to be outside the average hobbyist's pocket book.

Sounds pretty interesting. Would love to hear more about it.

4th quarter 2014 is almost gone, and this is just being announced now?

Looks like it could be cool though.

Nice set up, but 3.568,81€ is huge for a rapberry Pi, LCD, Tx, VRx and some pots and switches.

Does it have EU certification? Difficult to use professionally without

Comment by benbojangles on December 8, 2014 at 11:44pm

and this costs under a couple of hundred euros

Comment by Martin von Kameke on December 9, 2014 at 3:59am

It is with EU and CE certification

What kind of video link are you using there? HD?

If so it looks intressting for the claimed pricepoint!
