Just wondered whether anyone can recommend a definitive xbee set-up (modules and adaptors) - one which is know to work with as little fuss as possible?
Could anyone also tell me what config files i should be using?
I've just spent a frustrating 3 evenings trying to do the simple task of configuring 2 xbee 2.5 modules with an adafruit adaptor, a sparkfun usb explorer adaptor and a mass of different websites and books - with zero success.
Intermittent comms with X-CTU and the modules is the main issue and a total refusal to read from or write to them. When i manage to massage a connection, X-CTU can't identify the modules either, simply offering a module serial number.
rage is now me as far as those items are concerned.
I'm not looking for super long distance comms - just something which will let me configure my APM/OilPan IMU wirelessly and provide a bit of close quarters wireless telemetry.
As and when my quad matures, i'll look again at something more powerful.
Help much appreciated.
