I'm probably going to get this. I'm note sure where or how I would use this but controlling servos with my iPhone sounds like a pretty neat idea!

Um, wifi is just a 2.4Ghz system. Shouldn't be any more lag than a normal tx, which is virtually none. The cool part of this is the interface with Android...

That depends... Even on the local network I get lag on my Wi-Fi. Depends on if the data is sent in true (TCP/IP) packets or in a stream... If they are using Wi-Fi then it's not a steady stream. Normal transmitters I think operate on 2.4 GHz using streaming data.

There is an app (for iphone, not sure about android) that will do the same thing, but output a ppm signal so you can plug it onto your Tx. There is a free version that has 4 axis, one joystick and 2 accelerometer. Its called flypad.

Got this today no app in App Store to operate it!

Lame act! Falsely advertised. HobbyKing sold me a product that is incomplete and not useable as advertised. Anyone want to make a quality IOS app for this?

It is not the packet nature of the communication or the handshaking used in the medium but rather the bi-directional communication on a simplex medium which is shared with as many users as are in range of the AP. Co-sited users on the same AP are the real concern for communication reliability.
