Promo Code?

2 comments

Any chance of getting a promo code to negate the GST/HST fees of $23+? I went to purchase the complete kit for $199.00 which is a great price, but the extra fees tacked on at the end of the PayPal checkout made me abort the process~

 

Thanks.

Thanks for your interest Brian. We are afraid that we won't be able to provide a promo code at the moment. We are in fact selling the kit at a price that doesn't generate profit for us. It's barely enough to cover the cost.

 

We are talking to our suppliers and trying to lower the cost for the EyeTap, but it seems like it's gonna take a little while.

 

Thanks,

Max

I thought provincial tax in Canada was charged based on destination, so e.g. a sale to AB would be GST only. At least, it's that way for other online purchases.

    The kit has been out of stock for several months now. I am wondering whether anyone is still working on the project? If not, I would really appreciate a full parts list with parts numbers so that I can find the exact parts to buy.

    Hey, first post on here after finding the whole project a few days ago. I fly racing quad-copters through fpv, (first person view) so live view from a camera on the quad to fpv goggles. so not too much of a difference but i thought i might tell you about all the hardware we use, namely micro fpv cameras, super low latency 3-20ms with wires so you can fit them anywhere, smallish size at 19x19mm which is pretty tiny for a high quality feed like these. anyway, for optics we mostly use goggles which have 2 sets of lenses but there are some cheap ones we can take apart (although please don't use these as goggles, they are cheap for a reason) namely eachine ev100s, they have 2 sets of screens but the flex goes to the main board which is vaguely face shaped so you can diy something for that. also what may be fun is adding a 5.8ghz video receiver to a tap, so you can pickup feeds from around the place and as its analog anyone can tune it, truly open source! Thanks for reading and I hope to make my own tap soon after I've been thinking about it for the last idk 5 years? never knew there were others! but just ask if this needs any clarification or anyone is interested in the racing part. Edit: I found a cheap beam splitter on banggood: https://www.banggood.com/1Pcs-30301_1mm-50R50T-Optical-Beam-Splitter-Plate-Optical-Laser-Lens-p-1379199.html?rmmds=search&cur_warehouse=CN#jsReviewsWrap banggood are usually quite good and ive ordered much more expensive stuff from them so this should be fine. I just thought id put this here as I saw you guys had an issue with expensive beam splitters, (might have been prisms but idk enough about this yet to know the difference).
