Latency from Tx module PPM input to Nano Rx PPM output


Can you please estimate how much time passes from when:

Servo position information in a PPM frame output from a transmitter to the XPS Tx module comes out of a Nano Rx's PPM output.

I'm thinking some microseconds?

It takes up 14ms to collect the data from the PPM stream before it can be sent via the transmitter. Sending the data over air takes under 1ms with 8 channels. The Nano decodes the packet after it arrives, so another 1ms before the servo positions are changed - which occurs in less than 2ms.

The longest delay in the entire process is the transmitter's frame rate.

Interesting, about 17ms, with the majority of the time spent waiting for the complete frame to accumulate out of the transmitter. Thanks Jim, Paul.
