For best results, I would suggest using one of the RPi's wired com ports. Although Bluetooth is fine, there is buffering and latency that can cause problems, and to get the highest frame rate possible you need to minimise the latency. Although Ray achieved a pretty good frame rate at 22fps!

On a side note. If you are using a Bluetooth connection between host (RPi/Pc) and hexengine. Assuming the host Bluetooth device is on built in / USB port (most are) You don't have to open the host port with the same baud rate as the hexengine (115200). You can open the host port at any baud rate and it will still work. E.g. The host baudrate does not effect the remote Bluetooth device baudrate which should be configured by the hexengine/user.
