The project I'm currently trying to create is a remote control vehicle I'm creating(not a street vehicle).

What my project will need is.

Main micro controller to receive wireless commands from a hand held device.
Main micro control is going to have to be able to regulate a DC motor
The Wireless single will only need to be max of 100-200 feet outdoors

So what would be the best EQ to get? I know im going to at least 2 micro controllers 1 for the vehicle and 1 for the hand held. I will also need some type of wireless communication between the 2.

I ask here becuase i would much rather buy what i need the first time around and get every thing to work then have to get trial and error.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Xbee is simple and works well with the Arduino.
Its about $20 for one module. You'll need two.

Ok I'm looking at as they seem to be the only ones with the Xbee in the US

I would need 2 of them and 2 of the "Arduino Stamp"?

If this is correct how would i go about programming them. Would i also need "Arduino USB Board" or does the Xbee also have the ability to program

*Note im just starting out with the Arduino so please bare with me =)
