Description

*******************************************************************
This item is currently being launched on Kickstarter!

*******************************************************************

iPhly turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into an R/C transmitter. Roll the phone to roll (or steer). Tilt down to pitch down. Swipe up to throttle up. Swipe side-to-side to yaw.

Combined with the iPhly app available in the Apple Store, the iPhly is a completely open source hardware and software R/C transmitter.

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 are so last century.

iPhly uses standard, Futaba-style frequency modules. It works with the receivers you already own and has been confirmed to work with Spektrum, Futaba, HiTec, FrySky, Corona and other modules. There is nothing to change on the airplane or car.

To get yourself comfortable with iPhly, you can connect it to the "buddy-box" input on a traditional TX and have another pilot stand buy and take over in case of trouble. You can also plug iPhly into your PC and practice in the safety of your favorite flight simulator.
