And you know that fun mobile game Flight Control? Now you can play it in real life with your APM Copter/Plane:

I've never used an Android device, just curious how the telemetry board and antenna plugs into the tablet. Do they come equipped with USB? I'd love to be able to take something as small as a tablet to use instead of a bulky laptop.

Ty, you use an OTG cable. They cost $1-$2

I probably should setup a Paypal donation account, just in case someone want's to donate more than $5 (and also to skip the 30% cut that Google takes).
