My son has started being interested in flying and has downloaded a couple RC flight simulators on his (my old) Android device. They do work but using your thumbs on the screen to "move the sticks" just isn't the same.
Is anyone aware of a smartphone flight simulator that has the user plug in a tx for control? If not, it seems like a killer idea. Yeah, I know the screen is tiny (on most devices), but hey, getting some stick time is better than nothing at least for helping cultivate the eye-hand-stick-plane/heli connection.
The idea of using an audio input on a computer for decoding the PPM output of the trainer port is not new. But I haven't found any evidence of it on a smartphone.
