Will this transmitter work for submarines
AtoZ of RC hobby+DIY radio with ARDUINO
Few weeks ago I started to build my first RC plane. Surprisingly the design is very similar to yours, maybe because i also wanted to make it fully by myself and the parts must be really cheap. Cons and pros in this design:1. parts are really cheap. Arduino chip costs ~2usd, joystic ~1usd, RF24L01+PA ~3usd.2. you can transmit back telemetry (battery voltage, barometer or gyro data)3. Transceiver is heavy, I wonder if it will be possible to remove that heavy antenna connector, and solder other lightweight antenna.4. RF24L01+ uses 5 arduino digital i/o's , so there's only 7 left (of which 3 (if to connect radio to 9,10 pin.) or 5 (radio on 7,8 pins)are with pwm). so in my case i can control only 3 pwm channels5. It would be nice to find out how to increase tx/rx distance. Maybe to put another antena on transmitter part? Im already using 256kbps and full power link, but maybe there are some other parameters to get maximum out of this transceiver?
Thanks for the important post.Please could you tell me how to increase the range of the receiver and transmitter?
Thanks a lot for the gide. Now, I wanna add a video transmitter with my plane. How to design it?Please could you guide me?
