Ok guys and gals...not sure how many of you are going to use this. I've been able to build a working SMALL range finder for just a touch under $100.
Now, when I say small I mean that this RF unit is pretty much the same size as a regular boba/jango RF. The screen inside of it is around 3/4 of an inch, which when I first found this little gem...I was not convinced it would work as good as it does. It is a black and white module, but it's also backlit which means you can see it when it's dark. Couple a night vision camera to it and you have a nice Night Vision RF =)
I'm currently writing up the WIP on this and will have it included in the Mercs tutorial library. I'll have a link up no later then this weekend with pictures. There is one slight modification you have to make to the vid controller board, basically removing a resistor and bridging the gap it leaves.
So, everyone who's ever thought about having a working RF...prepare yourselves =D
