WiRC - Wifi RC receiver

Overview

Dear Visitor,
Dension Audio Systems Ltd. has ceased the production and distribution of the WiRC product line. Unfortunately we will no longer be able to provide technical support for these items other than warranty issues.
You can however download the SDK to further develop functions and operation of these devices – which we encourage you to do if you do have the expertise.
 
The Dension WiFi RC is a plug & play wireless RC receiver.

It allows you to control your RC car, boat, robot, tank, construction machine or any other RC vehicle with your iPhone/iPod/iPad or Android smartphone using WiFi. The iOS, Android application, available for free, lets you drive with on-screen joysticks or by tilting the phone, while watching the real-time video stream coming from your vehicle.
