@ronalex4203 Hi Heltec is the company who make the board:

https://heltec.org/project/wifi-kit-32/

I looked at Andreas' videos. Thanks, I'll delve further.

UPDATE:

I may have a part solution. The AAT I received is the latest module they make. I saw on the module's display menu that there was a Wi-Fi selection. It is new. So I contacted the company who told me that yes, there is a new function to process Wi-Fi data from a module such as ESP-15F. They will provide me the pinouts to make it work. I'm hoping I could substitute my ESP32 board instead. I don't see why not. Here is the picture they sent me.

@markzagit Identifying the parts in the picture is a start. Describing each parts function would be the next step. So far not a clue what is supposed to happen, what someone with sufficient knowledge needs to do to make this system work.

FYI, as a 50+ year systems guy, iteration is my mantra. Most of my code gets written 3 to 5 times, designs take many more iterations. Start at a high level and slowly add detail ideally at the same level.

The example bluetooth code you showed us is simply copying the bluetooth received data to serial and serial to bluetooth out, in other words a 2 way echo. The ino sketch you provided was nothing like that. The fact you didn't recognize the difference is very concerning.

@ronalex4203 Thanks, but you asked me for the BT version code.

I know they're nothing like each other, and I'm not even comparing them. What I mentioned was that what Rob Thomson did with his system using Bluetooth is exactly what I wanted to do - but with WiFi.

The principle is the same, but obviously the code I need for the ESP32 WiFi will in no way be aligned to the BT code.

@markzagit Actually your main loop is similar to one half the BT example. Part of the problem is you have used a web server sample for your code. I doubt you need a web server, but maybe I am mistaken. If your devices tech spec tells you that you need to install a web server, then use the sample code on the arduino site at https://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/LibraryExamples/WebServer

On what device will you be installing a browser to talk to the web server assuming a web server/browser is needed for you project which I highly doubt.

Think about it, if your choices are Bluetooth or WiFi what do they have in common, certainly not a web server/browser. 

BTW, this thread should be under Inside the Workshop -> Project Corner -> Help Wanted.

Great, thanks again. I'll head over there now. I'll get to the bottom of this one day!

@markzagit 

Does this apply to your transmitter ?

Hi, yes, this is the same setup, except I am not using a beta version.

Thanks for looking into this for me.

The " I don't think it works if you connect the ground station directly to the Crossfire access point, you need to have a phone or some other access point to connect to." Is where I'm at.

What I have and am trying to set up is the "some other access point to connect to" bit. That's the ESP32 board.

I'll have a look at the reddit post.

@markzagit If you want an AP on an ESP32 board then look at the following.

That is probably one of thousands of samples.
