There are several great web and software based headspeed and gearing calculators available. I thought it would be cool to see an iPhone version.

So KC, MrMel and others how about it? Would a downloadable iPhone application from the 'app store' be possible?

Regards

I just use the calculator on my mobile phone.

60% of the time, it works every time!

I have found the latest calc from MrMel is very accurate. I suppose the phone calculator could do the trick. I think a mobile version of the application which accounts for different governor performance and pack types would be handy though.

Try this little application at

I haven't installed it for a while, not sure about govs though.

Most Jscript based web based calculators/estimators can often be saved to disk and used offline.

I think your better off going by a good tacho than a head speed calculator as the kv ratings on motors are not accurate.

Everyone needs some sort of calculator to get close to what they need to use as far as a pinion is concerned and more so if using a two stage belt drive set up. Then have someone Tach the heli to find out where they are, then fine tune it from there.

I have referred a lot of people to MeMel's calculator since he introduced it a couple of years ago on RCG and it definitely works. There are and have been a lot of calculators out there, but this one to me is the simplest one to use. Maybe he will chime in and fix his so be able to use on IPhone.

Hey MrMel, I just noticed your ASP.net v2 calc .

So what's required for small mobile devices, a .jar Java applet?

iPhone RCcalc Tool
Found on the iTunes store, a fantastic little app that does a number of useful calcs for RC use, inc gear ratio with head and engine speed.

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/...st?id=293614210

The app you download has been updated from the pics, as it now says Pinion and main gear rather than mast etc.
