I have quite a few zigbee modules of various powers. I've used them for serial communication of environmental data and found them perfect for that. I am looking to do some sort of UAVS but I am loath to spend hundreds of Euro on a decent radio system when I have the zigbee modules.
I wonder has anyone built a full RC system for an aircraft using zigbee for comms. Components of the system would be
airborne zigbee, arduino, servos
ground zigbee, computer , software, joystick, mouse or keyboard for controller
The advantage is that no RC radio or receiver would be required, saving cost and weight, while extending range but of course the disadvantage is potential unreliability.
