    I had a laugh, nah, an embedded link wont display on an iPhone either, just need the name of the vid, then I can open my YouTube application and search for it manually, sorry to be a pain JP ;)

    Not bad... Seen some great ones...

    Just had mine replaced AGAIN... Was getting super hot and almost melting the sim card..

    Back to square ONE.. Disable BT (bugger need for car) disable Wireless (bugger need for work) and re charge every 6 hrs or on the car charger when on teh move..

    Opps... No quick dial when driving.... Never enough stopping lanes...

    Opps... Sorry Mr Customer... I can not BT my contact details to your corporate phone (NO E_MAIL Client or MMS alowed) Apple have disabled this feature... Here is my card; you can do it manually.... isn technology great :(

    Ok you have pics of the error code... No you can not BT them to me..... Hang on let me take a photo of your phone screen :o :o isn technology great :(


    Sorry Mr Customer... We had to go APPLE... Some one in Admin has a MAC and a collection of i-tunes music ::) :P No fit for purpose was never considered... Yes lots of apps, but if the other I-phone user does not have, then no go. OH... Just install from Apple = $$$ What you have a HTC and or other phone... Sorry... I can call you but not do business... :o :o :o

    End of RANT.

    Is that for real!? How can it get so far away from the operator and not lose signal?

    Yup! Its for real Scoota gal! It uses the WiFi capability of the iphone for communications.

    Re: Another use for your iphone

    Yes, I watched the trial run of the prototype...I see it can only get about 6 metres away from the operator. Not a very good distance in terms of remote control...

    I can think of ways to easily increase that distance quite dramatically. Potentially out to hundreds of meters. The limiting factor will be the broadcasting power of the drone, not of the controller. :)

    Re: Another use for your iphone

    I was always against iPhones (i found their owners to be particularly obnoxious) but when it was time to get a new phone the iPhones were the best deals so i got one and im a real convert.

    Ive purchased so many incredible apps (and games that ive wasted way too much work time on) that its become my favourite gadget (aside from my brand new K3T, of course).
