Talking to Wiimote via Bluetooth (without PC)

I'm thinking about a project where I use an Arduino board with a Bluetooth module (like this: and have it function as a receiver in an RC car. The controller would be a Wiimote or Wiimote + Classic Controller. I have seen others use this path: Wiimote -> laptop via Bluetooth -> Arduino via USB -> Futaba controller -> RC receiver. I would like instead to have the Arduino w/Bluetooth be in the RC car and eliminate the laptop in the loop. Can the Wiimote connect directly to a Bluetooth module or does it have to go through a software app on a PC first?
