I saw this a while back but it was only for iOS back then. I'm glad to see them coming over to the dark side. I'm enough of a nerd as to go out and buy this. lol

Edit: Wait, I think they still may only support iPhones.

Edit again: There are apps in the Android market! Time to get on eBay! lol

I have 2 of these (see for some stuff I've done with them).

There is already a development thread on with regards to Android control but I am sure that they will apreciate some input from this community too.

This is a great 'toy' and the community at are always looking to improve it even more. We've even managed to mount GPS to it and control it using 7ch TX rather than WiFi....loads of fun to be head with these!

It is designed for iOS use buy there are several scripts that can be run on the drone itself (as the drone runs off a linux base) so that it can be controlled via PC/Laptop, Mac, Android - these can all be found on along with some scripts for object tracking etc.
