XBee-Pro info for Radio control requested



Jan 1, 1970
G'Day all.
There are quite a few radio control manufacturers coming out with 2.4Ghz
systems, instead of the old 36 and 72Mhz systems. I was just wondering if
it was possible to use the XBee-Pro modules which have a range of about 1km
and transmit the PWM signal to the receiver.
To do this I would disconnect the RFtransmitter from the output of the
control transmitter. Feed the Raw PPM signal into the Xbee for
transmission. The receiver would receive this data and input it into the
signal line between the RF receiver and PPM encoder. I know it sounds
simplistice, but by the way the XBee modules are displayed, they say they
are true Plug and play units.
Of course there are other issues, such as voltage regulation, etc, but these
are minor issues.
Does anyone have any first hand knowledge of the XBee-pro modules, and how
they are matched? ie:grounding a line on Tx, whilst doing the same with the
Is there some way of having one unit Tx and the other Rx at all times, to
reduce latency.
Many thanks in advance,
