aside from the difference in size of a remote event vs a remote lua what is more reliable I am testing a link via Packet HAM radio and wondering if there is an advantage to using LUA instead of remote event?

Thanks,

In which way are you thinking of using remote Lua?

mainly running scripts to update variable and dm items

Well,... remote lua triggers the lua state. But if you will be processing with Lua anyway on the remote end, go for it. Using events allows you to take advantage of the GML tree and all it's features. In the end it really depends what you are trying to do with the incoming data.

ok thanks wasn't sure I may stick with events just to cut down on the amount of radio time needed

in case anyone is curious I did some testing and remote events works best and does take up less radio time.
