I am new to Arduino and looking to control a device over wi-fi, with let's say an iphone or a web browser. i have been googling alot and from what I understand, the easiest proposed solution is to hook an arduino to ethernet/wifi and relay commands to other arduinos via RF or other means. This is good for indoor applications, but what about outdoor or if there is no wifi network ?
I found this remote controlled drone : http://www.amazon.com/Parrot-AR-Drone-Quadricopter-Controlled-iPhone/dp/B003ZVSHB0 "The Parrot AR.Drone generates its own Wi-Fi network to which you connect your iPod touch or iPhone to control. The front camera view is streamed to your piloting device display."
Is it possible with an arduino and what kind of setup would you need ? The drone is sold 300USD, so I guess it wouldn't be a cheap solution.
Thank you for your time. Philippe
