Hi,

[...] anyone know anything that fits the bill?
There seems to be a bit of conflict about the precise nomination of the bill in question?!


[...] i need anything that can send a signal for various directions to my arduino
Anything??? Won't "something" do?
Regards,

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?

the bill is between $0 and $10. i need to somehow be able to remote control my arduino so that something needs to do that from a respectable distance (i.e. more then 10 feet)

it's for this little bugger. it isn't the 50 dollar robot but it's similar. i'd like to keep the cost as close as possible too :P. its cost about 80 with the camera gear so far :(

Just make sure you get an emitter and a receiver with the same frequency. And these are unidirectional links.
