This video is about a year old, but I just stumbled onto it. The guy managed to reverse engineer the IR sending unit's electronic signals, (i.e. what tells said IR unit to send what signal so the unit knows what to do) then write a computer program to control it. But, that's just the start. There's a smartphone accelerameter program, where he can just move his phone, and the heli flies with it. Then, there's a couple of different true autonomous things he was working on.

Enjoy, and post any similar videos below!

Here's another cool link I just got in my feed from the "Helicopter Links" facebook page. If you want info on real helis from around the world, they're one of the best sources for info from anywhere. https://www.facebook.com/HelicopterLinks

The article is interesting, because a group of Germans and a helicopter have successfully photographed and made models of the turbulence and vorticies of helicopter blades. This hasn't been done before, and is able to be done because of how air density changes on a hot day can cause heat waves and can cause the air to "shimmer." Photograph this against the proper background, with the right conditions, run some enhancements, and you have photographic evidence of the noise.
