    We met a few years back before a Maker Faire Bay Area, I gave you a large Dot Matrix LED sign to hack.
    I own many small aircraft as you show in the video along with RC slope soaring planes.
    Will this app. work with a iPod Touch too?
    Good Luck with your app.

    Do you still need Beta Testers? I have several electric planes and helicopters. My older coaxial Lama would be a good test bed. Where do I find out about wiring the iPhone to the transmitter module and what’s the range?
