IR helicopter automatic altitude control

Posted on Monday, October 10th, 2011 in Infrared toy by DP

Amieres built a IR controlled Helicopter with Wiimote using USB IR Toy V1. A camera connected to the laptop tracks the helicopter. Using the USB IR Toy the laptop sends automatic altitude control signals. Setting attitude points is done with Wiimote’s up/down buttons, while nunchuk joystick is used for motion control.

You can get IR Toy v2 for $22.05, including world wide shipping.

    Hey thanks for posting this!

    I have a new video explaining how to decode the IR protocol using the program I developed.

    There is also a link to download the program.
