The Fighting Walrus Radio allows iOS devices to communicate with unmanned aerial vehicles by radio frequency, instead of Wi-Fi
The Fighting Walrus Radio – see its walrus face?
One of the things that many people like about the AR Drone is the fact that the user’s iPad doubles as the quadcopter’s control unit. While using a tablet as a controller does have its advantages, there is one drawback – because the iPad communicates with the drone via Wi-Fi, its range is quite limited. The designers of the Fighting Walrus Radio are attempting to remedy that situation, by allowing newer iPads, iPhones and iPod touches to communicate with unmanned aerial vehicles via longer-range radio frequency.
