    Hey,

    @the moment I don't see the advatages of the Radarcape box for this price. I use RPi running with DVB-T Stick and local GPS via USB. Total cost is below 150€. Next step is to bring a better antenna on the roof. My data is show not very often on FR24 therfore I dont't want to spend money. Or does your status change from T-RADAD to F-RADAR when using a Radarcape box ?
    Best regards Christian

    What is the price FR24 Box? I ask because it appears on the invoice amount around 70 euros instead of 500 euros as it was written here

    The value is reduced for customs reasons. In some countries (outside EU) hosts has to pay tax if value is high, although the get they receiver for free.

I'm really sorry but we have decided to postpone the sale of the FR24 receiver. We want to solve the issue, before we start selling the receiver. We don't want to ship a product that we are not 100% satisfied with.

    That means that first batch of receivers will be dedicated for free receivers only. Next batch of FR24 receivers with some improvements is planned for late July and once we have verified that all issues are solved we will start selling the FR24 box.
    hi Mike,

    Can you please confirm that you still intend to sell a batch of FR24 receivers?

    thanks

    We don't intend to sell FR24 receivers. Gunther is selling the Radarcape which is more or less the same hardware, but with other software.

    Has anyone considered making a modified software for the "Stratux" Hardware ADS-B receiver? It supports both 1090es and 978 mhz freq, I'm sure it's software could be modified to send data to flightradar24's database. I've played with one a bit.
