You can store as many model memories as you like. You can give them long names. You can photograph your models using the iPhone's camera. Seven-segment displays on a TX are so last century.

The software is GPL. The schematics and SVN are on iPhly.org. The app is in the app store (if you don't want to compile your own). I am using KS to raise money for a production run.

 

Please visit the Kickstarter project page: iPhly.org/ks and share with your pilot friends.

Want to meet in the real world


This is my first post here. Chris has kindly introduced my project in his post a month ago. I have years of experience with R/C but no experience with drones. I wonder how can I meet some of the people who post here and see their aircraft in action.

The photo is one of my smaller models, a 5 1/4 inch, 2 gram Geobat.

I am in Sunnyvale, Calif.
