I haven't seen this yet but I would think it's probably possible.

I come across this free neat application that can control your wii remote via bluetooth called "wii controller"

if there's an open api for the chopper wifi interface, it should definitely be possible to write a program to control it, altho' you might want to use a wifi bridge to boost the signal if you're flying further away as i kinda doubt a phone's wifi tx' power

i saw that too - the name is a bit misleading; it should be "wii controller controller"

would be awesome if an android device could be made to act as an actual controller for a wii/ps3/xbox360

Default Android i-helicopter has arrived

I've got a HTC desire with Android 2.3 and I bought a Lightspeed i-helicopter for $60 and its awesome!

Check out the app "Copter Controller". Seem to be compatible with many android phones.

I got mine from i-helicopters.net

They have a YouTube video on the site of a guy controlling the heli with his phone while eating breakfast LOL!
