I would like to use the Raspi as a remote control for an RC receiver.
That means, I don't want to exchange the receiver and servo motor control with the Raspi, I would like to exchange the sender side.
So the Raspi sends signals to a Carson MR-8 8-Channel Receiver with 2,4 GHz, which is built in my RC model. Basically, this is a two-axis robot and an additional switch. However, those are in a different room so I would like to avoid using cables.
I am using mostly python, but I have been seen programming microcontrollers with C as well in the past, so I am not completely free of knowledge. However, the Raspi is new for me, it's here on my desk and I try to find out about it's capabilities.
Is that possible? Steering an RC receiver with 2.4GHz with the modules which are already onboard the Raspi? Or would I need some add-on module? I was looking into the NRF24L01 but not sure if this would solve the problem...
If this device uses Bluetooth, how would I find it with the PI?
Is it possible at all / are there vendor-specific codes which I wouldn't get?
Is there a module existing which shows how this kind of project is done?
Thanks a lot!
