I just got my EZ-B this week. Super excited to play with it and put it in my new robot I have been working on. I would like to cover the EZ-B board in a plastic case, but I'm wondering how that might affect the bluetooth signal. Does anyone have any issues with signal loss when the board and bluetooth transceiver are in an enclosed plastic case?

The bluetooth dongle I have for my laptop is rated up to 100m and I have good range when using my serial-to-bluetooth Belkin devices in the past. I don't think my robot will go beyond 30ft range of it's controlling laptop. Has anyone tried to max out the range of the included bluetooth?
I found these on Spark Fun and was just wondering what you would suggest.

I also found this little bit of info on the classes of Bluetooth.
