Does anyone know if this DSKY replica offered on eBay and the DSKY replica being offered on Kickstarter are produced by the same people?

I am very interested in purchasing one, but would like to better understand what the differences are between these two replicas (if any) such as quality of construction and operation and if they function essentially as the real thing (ie, run the same code under the hood).

Thanks in advance for any advice.

They are two separate replicas, produced by two different companies: Telemetrics LLC on eBay and S&T GeoTronics on Kickstarter.

Telemetrics (Sam Ammons) exhibited their DSKY at the 2017 Space Rendezvous at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. We plan to feature their DSKY replica in an article later this year.

Aha! Thank you, Robert. I was confused about that myself.
