I started building the remote system with a Picaxe micro-controller. My programming board went out, so I switched over to Audrinos because they are more durable and easier to work with. The nRF24L01+ Wireless Modules are amazing, I highly recommend them. At this point the remote system is complete and working properly. We will now attempt to field test them, then move on to the balloon itself if everything checks out.
