    Just had a look at it. It got lots of bad reviews. The paid version will cost $14 and is still not ready for beta, as per some of the reviews. As one reviewer said, it's a good start and may one day be excellent way to control the machine but needs still a lot of work to get there.

    Agreed! They are flying quads with bluetooth so this should be a snap

    mmmmm I'll stick with my wireless Logitech keyboard with touchpad... I have to many issues with phone apps going nutz , I could see my 265lb gantry come crashing into the endstops @600ipm now... Flying a pocket quad is one thing, trying to punch a estop on your phone while engaged in a highly satisfying game of Modern Combat 5 is another :)

    I guess you can't find it because it was removed form google play. Looks like it didn't work out as they where planing and it was removed until it's more mature. ;)
