    Flight link app?

    Is this the same as the traxxas link app? I can't find any settings in there for the Aton and a search of flight link in the App Store pulls up nothing.

    They are not the same app, but I am in the same boat. I love flying it so far, but I'd love it a lot more with the app control. I'm assuming it hasn't been released yet.

    Flight link app?

    I don't think it is either. In all the manuals and online it says the app is available in the App Store and the google play store.

    Hopefully it'll come out soon. My Aton won't be here for a few days but I feel for you guys that need it now.

    Honestly, it flies perfectly fine without it. I'm having a blast. They're just advertising some features in the app that I'd like to play with.

    Traxxas Flight Link is expected to be available on the App Store January 8th. Perhaps sooner...it is undergoing review by Apple. The Android version is expected to be available January 6th.

    Awesome. Thanks for the inside scoop. I'll be looking for it in a couple days.

    I have both Android and iOS and it seems neither app is in the store. I know the iOS version is out of Traxxas' hands (unless Apple rejected it) so I'm curious to see them pop up also.
    Traxxas please sell kits!

    Could a Traxxas employee please let us know what's up with the app?? The sixth was 3 days ago. Flys like a dream but some little changes could really help us more experienced pilots. Traxxas has done it again emptied my hobby fund account with a smile

    It's really in the hands of Apple and The play store. Apple has a very thorough and time consuming approval process for applications. The play store is way less strict.

    You know, it isn't fun waiting when you don't know why or when. But I'm sure if it isn't out its because it isn't ready for prime time. There is nothing worse than releasing software that bricks or makes the Āton hard/impossible to fly. Traxxas is doing the right thing by us.

    Would prefer waiting for a solid app than a buggy one. Would bite flying your aton at 400 feet and at a distance when it decides to just take off on its own away from you.

    The firmware of the Aton must be updated for full app functionality. It was easy and I can't wait for these 40mph winds gusts to calm.

    Was going to use my iphone 6+ but now thinking a tablet. Anyone know if the flight link app is identical for iOs and android or one has better features than the other?

    I used an older android tablet to test it out. Updating firmware isn't done through app it just gives you the Internet link to download firmware and then you transfer that file to a SD card then plug into Aton and power up and it does the update automatically. I am waiting for the iOS version for calibration and changing settings cause my old tablet is quirky. It might be fine but I mainly wanted to update firmware.

    I don't think there will be a difference between iOS and Android apps. That being said, one day we might get "Follow me" functionality which would mean your device would probably need GPS. Not all tabs do that. But this is just me guessing/dreaming.

    Any feedback from android users yet? I'm curious how this app is. I'm hoping it works as good as it looks.
