The PiKoder/PPM wRX is a WLAN receiver with PPM output which has been designed to replace the traditional R/C receiver in an UGV or UAV and thus to enable your Android Smart Device to interact with the model's flight controller replacing the traditional R/C transmitter.
Based on typical WLAN modules featuring about 20 dBm a range of several hundert meter can be reached. Technically the receiver would offer an access point for your device to connect to.
The PiKoder/PPM wRX features a wide range of power supply (4,8 - 16 V) thus allowing you to simply replace your model's current receiver.
Please note that the customization of your receiver may require a USB connector. Please refer to the construction manual for more information.
