The PiKoder/SSC wRX represents an eight channel wlan receiver module based on the PiKoder/SSC which has been designed as a replacement of the receiver in a R/C car. In concert with the udpRC-App you can easily control your model with your Android device and the udpRC4UGV-App interfaces with your Rover's ArduPilot Mega through your smart phone or tablet.
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/SSC wRX features a wide range of power supply (4,8 - 16 V) thus allowing you to simply replace your model's current receiver.
