Questions about Arduino

Hi! I am pondering on using Arduino, but I would like to know if it is possible to control a servo wirelessly. I read in the site that one would have to implement the Arduino Xbee Shield Wireless Module and another piece but is it possible to control it using only a Remote Control as with a Brusher Motor? Another thing, can we program in C++ or Metrowerks Code Warrior? I have only used MC6800 microcontroller for Assembly Language Programming.

Any info or help would be extremely useful!!! Thanks!

yes you can use RF, its not great for data, but for standard issue remote control it is fine.

as far as coding, the arduino system has its own ide which uses a focused and simplified C, no real need for ASM unless you want to or you need super accurate timing and great speed (ie generating video)
