    New to the forum first off let me say hi to you all, and i look forward to hearing any solutions, suggestions and or advice that you may have regarding my problems here on.

    Firstly very very basic knowledge of circuitry... Although more than capable of learning new concepts quickly.

    The issue I am having is devising a way in which to control multiple DC motors WIRELESSLY i.e. basically just turning them on and off and nothing other!

    Suggestions/ solutions regarding this issue please

    Thanks

    Transmitter for the operator.

    Each motor has its own driver circuit. The driver circuit is connected to the receiver. Receiver generates ON/OFF signal based on the signal from transmitter.

    I have used a TX/RX pair with a decoder IC RWS-434 TWS-434 and CIP-8E and CIP-8D decoder, this is older technology, but there should be modern equivalents.
    This set up was for 8 operators.

    How small can the receivers be ? and would it be possible to get one for under a £1 ?

    How small can the transmitters be? and would it be possible to get one for under £5 ?

    What range do you want, you most likely can get something from the simple R/C sites that is multi-channel fairly cheap?

    Im hoping to achieve around a 30m x 30m x 10m (l x w x h) range if that is at all possible ?
