Bruce' FPV Diversity Controller project

If you've been building electronic bits or modifying stuff you've bought then tell us all about it here. A good place to discuss the installation of 2.4GHz DIY modules too.

Now this is what you call a diversity controller/antenna. Should get 360 degrees from this baby.

Rixx,
You could try using video switches such as the ones in this link

Some of them are quite inexpensive
Compromising with out of control government is like living with a lion, sooner or later the bloody thing will eat you .

You accept the tyranny of the state when it's not being applied to you, when it is: it's too late.

There are plenty dedicated video switches, but I can't get them locally and shipping takes weeks. And more money. I put there relay I bought for 2 eur and it works great ;)

Well I can't argue with that!

Yikes :shock:

That appears to be an 8 channel 16 element(?) 360 degree helix antenna. Nicely teamed with (what looks like) 2 x Avalon RF DX604 4- Antenna Diversity Receivers... the receivers alone cost $7789.90; and not surprisingly for that sort of money each receiver is a "true diversity" receiver with a bandwidth of 16MHz.

Rixx I'd also be interested in code for your arduino diversity :)

I'm awaiting Bruce's approval to publish this. Then I'll put here code and circuit. Please stand by ;)
