I recently bought a 10 pack of RF transceivers (nRF24L01). I wanted to know if its possible to pair one with an RC drone controller. I can't seem to find any ways to do this through google.

If this helps:

My drone and its controller is called "Sky Viper v2400" and a link to where you buy it is: https://www.amazon.com/Sky-Viper-01601-Streaming-Video/dp/B01D1HRXSK.

    Probably not. You'd have do dismantle the drone and find out what chip it uses. If it's the nRF24L01 or one of the Nordic SoCs with a built in nRF24L01, then it could be possible. Otherwise, no.

  • Even if you figure out that your drone uses the same proprietary protocol (/chip) you have to somehow determine the channel, pipes and every other piece of the radio's configuration for any (proper) communication to work.

The nRF24 operates in the 2.4GHz frequency and implements a proprietary protocol so, even if I don't have much information on your particular drone/controller, I strongly doubt there's a chance you can use the nRF24 module to talk to your drone.
