      I loved the visual timeline, even if only tentative! I wish more projects would do this! Keep up the good work!

      I guess production start means that it is less likely that we see an improvement on the hardware side as a stretch goal.... That would actually be really disappointing. Because I really like the idea of a small camera or some of the other suggestion in regards to hardware that were made.

      Can't wait to see the Android app! This is going to be so cool when it's done.

      Though, you do realize it's spelled "Alpha" not "Alfa". . .

      It will be awesome if you can make one vertion of the Paper Airplane with a little camera that can record the lattest flight and see it on The PowerUp 3.0 iOS app.
      Or that you can watch live the flight from the camera of the Paper Airplane on the Iphone and also see the controls of the The PowerUp 3.0 iOS app.

      That is a great idea. If I change my pledge to a. Hacker pack, can I add to it a small pcb? I could add a small low resolution camera to it!

      The app is intuitive and seems to be the perfect interface for the device. Could there be some "tweaks" to controls, such as a beginner's / expert mode (slower / full rate changes to throttle/rudder) or some means to tune the response?

      And I love the camera comment below. Or maybe a small sensor of some sort - or at least a data provision for it that can be exploited later.

      The iOS version is not supporting either my iPod Touch 4 or my iPad 3. I am not planning on getting a smartphone. Will you be offering a fix for either of these devices or does your software rely on an active cell phone connection?

      @Jon Cohan: iPad 3 works. To find the app on the App Store on an iPad, you have to change "iPad only" on top left of search result page to "iPhone" otherwise the app store doesn't show any results!!
