Finally, you can control your R/C model from your IOS/Android device!
With this new compact WiFi reciever, you can operate up to 4 channels from your IOS/Android device. It operates like a standard reciever. Just install to your model, connect the power source (5~7.4V) and control up to 4 channels independently via WiFi. This device provides a signal range of 60~70 meters when installed in surface vehicles (car/truck/boat) and up to 100~120 meters in aircraft. It even features a programmable Failsafe function that will default to user selected servo/ESC pre-sets in the case of a lost signal.
You can download the required free application for your IOS/Android device (from IOS/Android market) and be operating your model via WiFi in no time!
Why are the files missing? A week or two ago the files section had a lot of good stuff, the APK's for Android and some community-supported files. Now it is empty! You can't find the APKs anywhere.
For anyone interested, you can login to the admin console of the receiver by going to the DNS address with your web browser. This should be 10.10.100.254. It will ask you for username and password. They are both 'admin', without the quotes of course.
Is there any app for IOS and/or Android systems that has sliders instead of sticks.
Airplane mode is an option. with throttle only
Only need one channel to control a lever on a smoke machine to power up and back for fire smoke testing in a parking garage.
So a screen full of non functional sticks isn't perfect.
The person that uses it has a iPhone. But i have a Android. So both would be nice.

I have 4 of these operating simultaneously with 4 android tablets controlling 4 remote camcorders. Work really great with Mintoris Remote Cam Control android app. Also has IOS app. Drag to set camcorder direction. Unlike airplane app holds position when released. Can be modified to operate 4 servos to hold position or return to center in any combination with different backgrounds. Love them for remote control of numerous devices
If you are intending to use Mintoris Basic to control this receiver, it would be best to download the latest demo program from the Mintoris forum. The version that Graham uploaded sends out channel packets every 10ms when it should send them every 50ms. But for reference, the version uploaded here (under the files tab) shows exactly how to control this receiver in Basic.
To upload the file I had to change it to "WiFi_Rec_cont_in_basic.doc" but obviously for it to run in an Android device, that device must contain Mintoris Basic, and this file must be changed back to "WiFi_Rec_cont_in_basic.bas", and placed in the Mintoris basic folder on your device.
Basic controls the WiFi receiver. As Charles says, it works like a dream. I find that the channel values need to be between 0 and 100. This gives the full range of movement to the servos. I will upload (if I work out how to) a little program that works well on a Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S. I confess that it is specific for a 480x864 screen, but it would be easy to write a device-independent version. Thanks to Charles, if the connection is lost it is rapidly re-established when you get closer to the receiver, so long as the Android device has not logged onto some other favourite WiFi network. It might be wise to make the device "forget" all favourite networks that are in range. Any error messages are stored in the clipboard.
This has to be the easiest way to program radio control.
I am the creator of Mintoris Basic and I just finished helping Graham write a Basic subroutine to send channel position data to this WiFi Receiver. This receiver under the control of Basic is a powerful combination. The Basic source code is posted on the Mintoris forum and is very easy to use.
I am a bad programmer...... but I can do quite complex things in BASIC. Has anyone any idea how to control this thing from an Android phone using basic? ... for example, the excellent Mintoris BASIC? And what codes need to be sent to each channel?
Thanks to anyone who can help!
You can download from the website of ezc-rc or the files tab of this page.
1. download the file for a pc
2. unpack the file
3. upload the apk file your phone or tablet via usb or bluetooth
4. run the apk file on your phone (use a file manager program)
5. enjoy it.
Just bought one of these for a small mini rc tank. Works great - In answer to Heiebeuisb - Yes you can choose mode 1 or 2 via the menu - The app for both plane and car is in files tab above on the right.
Is anyone out there clued up on editing android apps? I want to convert the app to work better with my tank - ie i need two throttle controls. Any idea's? Is there an app in existance already?
ALso, the project is designed to be general-purpose, and is an Android Library Project (not an 'app'), but it has a fully implemented Activity in it called TransmitterActivity, which can be used, or even subclassed for some custom transmitter.
this is very cheap receiver for controlling my rc cars with my iphone 4. all functions works very well but its warming a bit high.

I got this receiver yesterday. Interesting for playing around. You need to download program for android in "files section" in order to use it. Programs are called "remote plane" and "remote car", I could not find them on android market. Advanced users can even make their own program for it because receiver can be accessed through its own IP address. Very easy to use!

Very Nice! You can Drive with the G sensor of the iPhone, but only fly with the App buttons. It's very fun to use your phone to control something but I don't use as a reliable system. Sometimes you have wifi connection lost. I think a little expensive, but is Nice to try something different.

Tried initially with an external battery on the "battery" connection so I could establish which channel is which. (I was using a trainer with a 12" prop, so I was hesitant to plug ESCin an have it fire up at full throttle!) worked first time. The channels are: Ch1 Aileron Ch2 Elevator Ch3 Throttle Ch4 Rudder (I used IOS on iPhone, mode1) All worked, but I didn't check range beyond about 20m. Taxying checks, and a small hop into the air so far. Need to get a bit braver over thye weekend. ;0)
