Under Development (Disclaimer)

Remote control is still under development and should be considered experimental. At this point RX is almost completed and most basic functions are supported. TX is being developed during the first quarter of 2017 and free updates will be available when ready. Because of this the support is limited and functionality of the software can change. But being early with the latest is part of the fun, so go ahead and experiment!
