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.

  • Real progress is here: I have 5 production units from the mold in Chris's photo. They all test out. We are going to full production.

  • Just to make clear, these aren't my booth bunnies. I didn't even have a booth. These are from
    This domain may be for sale!
  • And here's what makes projects succeed! I'm back from Weak Signals Show in Toledo. The response there is phenomenal. And the booth bunnies are phenomenal, too :=)


    Thank you for all of your support.

    Good news! This project hit its funding target on Kickstarter and will now be made. Congrats, Ari!!


    Here's the injection mold:


  • There are throws and rates. I am working on adding expo. Anybody know a useful formula?



  • Ari,

    Yes you are correct by your observation. Jack got rather lucky on that one. We are now adding some science and education to the design. Starting to turn into something that one could fly in!

    Looking forward to the release of the IPhly. Are there setting to set things such as throws, rates and expo?





  • Thank you for your support Chris! Jack is a very colorful character. Geobats are amazingly stable--and have an extraordinarily wide speed envelope. The weird thing is that Jack bases the design on geometric forms rather than aerodynamics.

  • I payed my $70! Looking forward to this one.
  • I'm in and deeply involved with GeoBAT, lets make one fly with the IPHLY! PM coming.
