Would something like this be able to function with the $50 robot?http://www.rentron.com/rf_remote_control.htm
From looking at the schematics on the website, it looks like it can connect to a microcontroller such as the ATMega8, but I'm not positive. Is this something that could be added to the programming to allow for this robot to be remote controlled or am I wasting my time? I'd like to make a working remote from scratch as well as the robot from scratch rather than buy a premade remote and receiver. I'm still new to this, so if I'm wasting my time, please let me know.
Also, if I'd be better off using the controllers that are recommended on the rentron website, I can always use those so long as I'm not required to buy the $230 software from their website in order to program them.
