Here is a small project i have done after A/Ls free time, a fully home made remote controlled flight using Styrofoam. Both flight and remote controller was powered by arduino nano, and two nRF24L01+ transceiver modules which manufactures specifies that it could obtain 1km range. Two 3 cell LiPo (Lithium Polymer) batteries were used as power resources. 1000kv brushless motor with 30A esc were used to generate trust for the flight and two micro servos for main wing elevators.
