FliPhone – iPhone Controlled Wi-Fi Helicopter

fliphone-iphoneThe FliPhone is a program which allows you to use the accelerometers on the iPhone to fly a model helicopter. By tilting the phone you can control how the blades and whatnot are moved around. However, there is one problem in that the iPhone doesn’t have a transmitter compatible with a regular RC helicopter. To solve this problem wi-fi on the phone was used which connected up to a Linksys router to get an IP address. Along with using SSH and various other nerdy type stuff the RC helicopter can now be controlled by the iPhone wirelessly.
