will this work as a replacement for xbee
$69.00 each and can be bumped to 1W output.
low-cost, long-range, multi-purpose, multi-function frequency hopping line of RF modules. DNT modules support Analog and Digital I/O and Serial data
Tell me what you think about this idea :
I agree - I think they are a fantastic radio. I have been working on a project to interface them to the arduino mega to make an open source, multi-vehicle, fully configurable control system. Whole kit (two full arduino shields + radios will cost less than two of the xtend900 radios alone; Plus, they can do up to 115200baud at 1 watt. Much faster!)
Please check out my project! and let me know if you ever need help integrating these
