Comparing the XBEE to the 3DR radio .. Not much in it , however the Xbee is heavier ..

After soldering the breakout pins in to the boards I started looking for a thing to put the board in , didn't want it open ...I had a old 53Mhz receiver that I took apart and placed the
3DR board in to , put some heat-shrink over and this is the end product ...


Setting up is really easy ...I followed the Wiki and was done in about 10 minutes ..

There you go ...They are talking to each other ...and the APM shows the movements etc VERY quick ..I'm Impress.. See Signal strength top right ...
