  1. FCCID search is a great starting place. You could also "scan" the range you believe the remote to operate on. Sometimes with low cost SDR dongles they will be off frequency by a little. Just tune to the center of what you find the remote transmitting on.
  2. I would agree this is a good solution especially with the added redundancy. Have done similar in a system that monitored the level of a grain bin to turn an auger on/off for transfer of grain. No matter the switch type, I would use some sort of redundancy to prevent dry running of a pump,motor, etc. That is really cool! Nothing like a little electric in your fuel.
  3. Still would be cool to see work. Just to say you did it ? Probably the much easier route though. As long as you have GSM signal.

    GSM hacking

    This is a great starting point. Has a lot of useful information and steers you in the right direction wise of further research.
  5. Agreed. Better have the key with Windows 7. Seen to many horror stories of people thinking they can just reinstall win7 and have no key....
  6. You just need a FR9888 step down regulator. You should be able to find a few around the web. eBay has them but you will typically have to buy them in packs: https://www.ebay.com/itm/10pcs-FR9888-FR9888SPGTR-SOP-8-IC-good-quality-/291656081865 Its hard to tell from the picture posted. Just depends on the rating of other components used on the board but there is a chance that capacitors, resistors used in the reg circuit could be fried. Not real familiar with the chip but if it caused a voltage spike when it fried then the damage may be unrepairable...
  7. You can get a replacement chip but will have to be able to solder it on. Also you could have more fried components that are visibly damaged.....
  8. SMA-RP to SMA adapter for the radio side of the amp. The antenna will hook straight up.
  9. I'd agree with @barry99705 recommendation. If you go with a sealed enclosure heat will likely be an issue. Keeping it physically dry is the big thing. You could do an enclosure with vents if you want more physical protection. Could even go as far as a cooling fan. But probably overkill and not the cheapest solution. When you use vented enclosures outdoors you need to remember to bug proof them as well. They love to build webs and nests inside that nice dry enclosure.
  10. There are several services that do very similar to what you are wanting. Are you wanting file or system backups? Just a few of the simpler things that will need dealt with: If you IP changes every few days, you are either going to need to get static IPs from the ISP or use a service like DynDNS To setup the VPN do you plan to use a computer for your "mini NAS" or what kind of hardware are you looking at? It will have to support VPN unless you plan to setup the VPN at the router and have the NAS hardware behind it. Does the backup software you plan to use support automated backups to multiple locations? Or are you planning on a more custom option?
  11. Need more info on selecting the best model. Specific program you want to run? do you need 5 GHz? OS to be used with? (guessing Kali) Some of the models you listed have known issues with Linux and certain pen testing programs.
  12. Usually the biggest problem with getting things like this to work is figuring out all the dependencies. Many times you will find that dependencies either stock loaded or available to a full system install (laptop, desktop) are different for RPi. A lot of major dependencies have been made for the RPi you just have to manually install them. Usually you can get them working just have to do some digging into it.
  13. Have done similar with RPi. Can use SSH and VNC to run it from about anything with SSH and VNC apps available.
  14. I would do some serious digging around the web for more information about the drone. You are going to need to know the protocol and what commands are required to make certain functions of the drone work. If no one has done it before and the company will not respond/share information on the functioning, it will most likely require reverse engineering the drone to find all these thing out. If the drone has a FCCID on it that might help with information on the data communications part of it. It can be surprising sometimes the information found with an FCCID search. Also posting all known information, like FCCID, on the forum makes it easier for other interested people to help!
  15. I think one of the funniest interference cases is when an ISP puts all the SAME WiFi routers on the SAME channel in the SAME town and a lot of people are mad about poor WiFi signal. Its bad enough when a low quality router is used, but simple channel delegation can help quite a bit.
