If you want some reliable range having more than one satelite would be a good 
move. Multiple usarts would be required for that which leads to the use of an 
external micro. I did some research into this and concluded an XMEGA chip would 
be perfect for this until I realised that the chip can't be programed with ISP 
(I don't have the right programmer for it). The smallest chip has 5 usarts from 
memory which means good expanability if someone wanted to go crazy with the 

Sparkfun have back in stock a break out board that would be suitable for the 
XMEGA but would require soldering the chip on. (not that hard)

Just ideas.....

Hello everyone,

We've got a Spekrum DX-7, with an AR-7000 receiver.  It's satellite
(diversity) receiver communicates with the main bit using a simple
serial protocol.  Code to translate this has been written for the Booz,
but not for paparazzi core.  Is there any way to reuse this code for the
traditional system? Or will I have to adapt it?

Many Thanks
