Alternative way to transmit to a cortex

Has anyone thought about utilizing a 2.4GHz transmitter meant for R/C airplanes with a vex cortex? I know how to use the receiver with an arduino but I’m wondering if there is any way to control a cortex with one of these receivers. I’m just trying to come up with ideas to have an original robot at the CREATE US Open’s open division

You should be able to hook it up to one of the UART ports same as with serial on an Arduino.

Yup any serial device should work easily. I am a fan of Bluetooth and so I have an HC-06 laying around. 10$ and plugs into UART. Can easily communicate with phones or laptop or obviously other robots with Bluetooth.
