Xbee (or better - nrf24l01) transmitter/receivers
I’m toying (along with Bill Blake) with the idea of building a KAP transmitter (and receiver) using nrf24I01 modules (much cheaper than xbee’s). We’ve both been using transmitter modules extracted from Spectrum DX4e, 5e or 6i transmitters but these are now hard to get cheaply and anyway it seems a shame to throw 95% of the transmitter away. It seems possible to get a range of 1200’ or more using nrf24I01 modules.
Five or so years ago various people had reported working with Xbees - has anyone done this recently?
