RC Communications - transmit data from aircraft and receiver in-hand

RC Communications - transmit data from aircraft and receiver in-hand

I'm trying to teach my10 year old son the importance of electronics and data communications via RC model plane that we are building by modifying a glider.

The thread “RC transmitter and receiver” started on Dec 02, 2012, 06:26 pm provided good info on building a system for communication from handheld to aircraft.

What I need is info on communicating data from aircraft to handheld. Weight is critical. What Arduino components would you recommend? Data concerns are temperature, current and video.

Thank you for any help that you may provide.

The aircraft is an RC model plane.

Look at ther vertuial wire libary for communication of numbers.

Look at another platform for communication of video.

Thank you Mike, The virtual Lib is a great set.

You might check the drone forums for info.

What sort of data do you want to transmit ?

If you need a VERY lightweight "arduino" plus 2.4GHz wireless transceivers look at these websites Deltino and Deltang

I have used them for R/C of N-gauge model trains.
