SparkFun Electronics will be closed in observance of memorial day on Monday, May 29th. We will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, May 30th. Any orders placed after 2pm Mountain Time on Friday, May 26th will process and ship out on Tuesday, May 30th.
Description: The nRF24L01 module is the latest in RF modules from SparkFun. This module uses the 2.4GHz transceiver from Nordic Semiconductor, the nRF24L01+. This transceiver IC operates in the 2.4GHz band and has many new features! Take all the coolness of the nRF2401A and add some extra pipelines, buffers, and an auto-retransmit feature - very nice!
This board features a reverse polarized SMA connector for maximum RF range. Please remember, you will need a mating RP-SMA 2.4GHz antenna (listed below).
Because of lower costs and better performance, we recommend the nRF24L01 over the original nRF2401A modules.
This unit has an onboard 3.3V regulator and has 5V tolerant IO lines. This makes it very flexible, but you will need to power the unit with 3.3V or higher voltage for the regulator to perform properly.
Note: We now populate these boards with the nRF24L01+. The ‘+’ version of the IC has improved range, sensitivity, and data rates. The command set is backward compatible with the original nRF24L01.

I have been trying for years with various versions of RF24 to get a stable communications running. This works and I had it up for hours and it did not miss anything.
I have written basic code to control a servo from a slider pot on another one. Command to Slave is here enjoy: https://github.com/alohawild/RF24
The breakout board is good but you will need to get the soldering done yourself. Pretty standard equipment .
