Is it possible to send data from two arduinos through a single XBee setup? I cant combine the two arduino projects but trying to get away with using one set of XBee's to transmit its data (single tx/rx for both arduinos). Trying to keep the weight low when I am using both the arduinos at once in my plane and not have to use two xbee's on the plane as well. Thanks for any input on this

I'm not familiar with Xbee, but its possible to have one 'master' and have another arduino sending its data to the master using software serial then use the master to send everything to wherever its going.  All you need is a couple of free digital pins on both arduinos and modify the sketches at either end.
