Getting good oplink getting harder... Any way we could use these, maintaining PPM control as well.

Yes, but...

They will be set up as an unintelligent serial link and will have to control their own buffers with a bit less than optimal results.  For instance If you just want to send a small amount of data, they will have to time out and send less than a whole buffer full.

In the past, I have used some similar stuff on 433 because it was very cheap.  It worked, but was slower.  I would probably not recommend that you use it for control (just telemetry).

New old stock that apparently came from now defunct OpenPilot store.  I have bought many from here and they are good.  You can buy 4 before USA shipping starts getting expensive.  I don't know about Australia shipping...

I just now baught 3 pairs of the OPLMs there.
Its the original batch from Australia and they still got a lot of them but consider to discontinue.
Those guys are doing a great job.
