Actually, I am favoring the idea of initial Rs-232 inter-comm,
followed by autonomous operation, followed by having a 2-way
R/C link - one for control-out, other for sense-feedback
from the car/tank - one 27, other 47Mhz. Would probably buy
the "cheapest" R/C toy I could find to get the 2nd [feedback]
link. Both links would be kinda slow, but shoot - "autonomous"
means you're basically on your own.
