Tonight I put a search into google for "model combat" and came acroos 
this site among others http://www.swampworks.com/ . These model warships 
shoot BB pellets at each other to SINK their opponent. "I have a vision" 
I'd like to see someday an RC battlefild where warships ,tanks, armoured 
everything and even aircraft..the whole shebang battle it out. They'll 
have onbard video link back to their respective controllers and a 
broardband data link to control and send valuble data back and forth to 
keep in touch with their vehicle. Maybe someday (please ,please ,please 
,please....!!) a company will produce an embedded 802.11g network 
interface for low cost uC's (AVR's PICs etc) so all this could be 
possible. Any electronics  engineers out there pretty please think about 
it. I'm sick of all this low bandwidth stuff, it doesn't fill my needs 
at all. I'm trying to design a custom radio control system for my tank 
with AVR's but the real problem is finding a suitable method of 
communicating via RF, it could be done .....but that would be a tad 
illeagal (using TV transmitter receiver pairs for a data link).

Well just a thought.
