Edit: I decided to keep the receiver and re-purpose it.

For sale is one of the first Big Red Bee 900 MHz transmitters (serial number #24). It has seen 10-15 great flights. The GPS is not Ublox, but the prior type (Trimble, I think). The transmitter does not have flash memory for recording.

Disclaimer: It is acting up and gives intermittent behavior. Sometimes it works fine, sometimes the transmit location never leaves the launch pad. Works fine in ground testing. I can't explain it. Maybe somebody more savvy than me can fix it, repurpose it, or use it for parts. Sold as is.


Transmitter with LiPo battery
USB programming interface/charger
Jumper pin for on/off switch on the transmitter

For sale $40 shipped. Sold as is. Paypal Friends and Family.
