To sum up our findings so far, we were able to transmit 250 byte packets in one way at 330Hz, which lends us [330times-per-second x 250Bytes x 8bits-per-Byte / 1Mb] = 0.66Mbps (Mega-bits per second) of transfer speed, which is quite low compared to ESP-MDF (ESP-MESH) max speed of 10Mbps (Sect. 5.2). This is pretty bad if I were to try to transmit a 60fps video stream using this method.

The two-way communication of one byte of data one way and back took around 5 milliseconds on average.
