Laughing My mistake, I knew one of those frequencies was only good in 3 countries. Congrats on getting the 900MHz transcievers going, have you thought about what type of physical interface you will use? Hack an existing radio or build your own?

first step will be to make it give servo outputs
so we'll put a PIC in.

but even then it'll send back signal strength and the like
(and probbly some A/D chanells w00t)

head end will be a PC with a joystick
i have direct X inputs working now (in VB admitadly but hey)

eventyally i'll try to make a client server type thing so we could have a bunch of bots running off it and everybody running off either ther own laptop with a custom "dashboard" or just plugged into the main server via usb
