WIRC wifi hot-spot RC control


Junior Member
Hi Everyone,
I'm looking into building my own tricopter, probably based somewhat off of David's plans. Unfortunately I cannot afford an expensive transmitter at the moment. I have been looking into alternative methods of control; I'm hoping to use my android tablet (the reason I can't afford a transmitter) to do the job. I found this product:
which creates a wifi hotspot that connects with my tablet and a free app controls everything. I was wondering if anyone has experience with this product and could tell me whether or not it's a good idea. Any other suggestions or advice would also be extremely appreciated.
