Description How To
 

BlinkRC2 is the new smallest, most-capable WiFi remote control receiver-- the successor to the original BlinkRC. A tad larger than a pack of gum the BlinkRC can control almost any RC car, plane, boat, or helicopter over WIFI using your smartphone or PC. If you're not satisfied with our custom controllers, create your own controller using BlinkRC2's open communications protocol. BlinkRC2 has six dynamically configurable channels that can act as either PWM servo control, digital output for controlling other electronics, analog input for interfacing sensors (1.1V or 5V reference), or off.

The BlinkRC V2.0 now supports accelerometer data from your phone! Just hook your servo and ESC up to the appropriate port and you can drive by tilting for a unique control experience.

Download the free app on your android, iOS device, or PC to get started.

Note: Images are of BlinkRC V1. V2 pics will be available shortly.

Not really worth it November 3, 2011
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Ebersdorf, Steiermark Austria  
I bought one of these a while ago (3 months), and have been less than satisfied. The android app which is so often talked about is only available form the amazon app store. I've registered, but when I try to DL it, I get a message that it isn't available for my country (Austria). I've written the company 3 times and never gotten a response. The windows "program" is a java thing with minimal fucntionality, and a python script. Again, rather sparce for $150. I've been able to get an ad-hoc hookup going, but if you wanted to go through your router, good luck, cause I haven't been able to get it to connect like that. All in all.. disappointing.

Gateway to your own personal army of remotes June 14, 2011
Reviewer: Nigel_Samhain from Drums, PA United States  
The perfect gift for amateur rc modelers and backyard bashers looking to take it to the next level without alot of coding experience necessary. The obvious plus here is that you could have a slew of these things all controlled from a single Wireless Router. Endless possibility. Android support on the way.
