However, they are a great, very cheap solution for short range transmission of digital data using microprocessors (up to about 300 m in the open). If you use Arduino, or other AVR-type C programmable micro, take a look at the VirtualWire library http://www.airspayce.com/mikem/arduino/VirtualWire/

I only have one arduino at the moment (arduino nano) and to save cost is it possible to use the 8-pin AVR ATtiny85?
I have no experience with this since it is just the microprocessor unit and it doesn't even have an arduino bootloader. how would i go about programming this?

Are you sending 'sync' bytes before your data?
Are you Manchester encoding your data?
Both greatly improve the reliability of the data.
Did you study the VirtualWire code?
