LK8000 remote control with mini bluetooth keyboard

LK8000 v5 is supporting these new cheap mini bluetooth keyboards available on many online marketplaces for a few dollars.

lk8000.org domain hijacked by Peter Lengkeek.

A dutch pilot, Peter Lengkeek, based in Arnhem , Netherlands, is currently broadcasting an LK8000.ORG website ignoring our requests to give the domain back to legitimate owners (us). This story goes on since more than two years ago.

Should Peter Lengkeek try to sell this domain trying to make profit out of it, we shall prosecute new owners.

We wouldn't be surprised if he did it, because he lied to use more than once promising to release the domain to the legitimate owners (us) once the registration subscription fee was exhausted.

We have no relationship with LK8000.org , which we consider hijacked.

All of this is a real shame, considering that this is a non-profit project.

Shame on Peter Lengkeek.
