As an update to my RC car hack and to promote my charity efforts (see below) I though I'd try and fly a Symo S107G using an Xbox 360 controller. A C# Windows application communicates with an Arduino which imitates the helicopters IR transmitter.

This hack just hit hackaday.com so on the off chance my site gets nailed, here is a link to donate for the charity fundraiser;

Deadline is noon-ish March 1st (UTC). :)
