New video – 2015-11-18
**NOTE (2011-12-21), this mod has been superseded by the miru mod now. See my newer video. It’s a new mod that doesn’t use WiFi anymore. You can use your own RC transmitter but doesn’t require wifi. The arduino plugs directly into the drone’s USB socket. I reused the Yellow Jacket and flashed it with mirumod 0006. You don’t need a BEC anymore and you don’t have to edit the drone’s system files. It’s more simplified.

This mod will let you use a regular 2.4ghz transmitter with the Ar. Drone instead of the iPhone. It’s much more easy to fly. You can still use the iPhone or have video down-link if you choose to.
