We all or at least most of us know that the TQi is required to have an I device to reach the full potential of the XO-1. I think that it is good that you need a I device to reach the full 100mph. It is good because it tells you all the temps, rpm, mph, and more. But many of you would prefer that you can just get a $30 screen instead of dropping $80 on a used iPod touch but then again if you can afford a $1000 RC car the you can surely drop $80 on a ipod touch. Also many of us already have ipod touches and iphones. So tell me would you rather maybe spend $30 on a screen just for the TQi or and I device that you can do what ever you want. For me I don't really care because I have a ipod touch 3 gen.

i have a 3rd gen ipod too. was hopin that platform would work, not the i even know im getting one. its good to know ive got that base covered if i do get it. im not upset about needing an i device either. i think its cool all the things it does with it. plus, like mentioned, your all ready spending $1,100 on a toy. whats another $100-150 for something that does so much more as welll?

I don't have an iPhone, and nobody I know has an iPhone, they all have Blackberries. A Blackberry is the only smart phone that people can have where I work, because it's the only one you can get without a camera.
Feel free to disagree about whether this was a good move for Traxxas. Opinions are subjective, but when you start posting erroneous information, your bias becomes very apparent.

I currently own:
iTouch 4G 64GB
iPhone 4S 32GB
I will not own a mac, but nothing beats the iTouch, iPhone or iPad.

iPhone's are the real deal...
$30 extra could put a cheap display on the controller but you also need to put in a bigger computer and more memory. With an iPod attached the controller can relay exactly what it relieves to the iPod and the iPod can do the rest, and show it on a retina display

You don't need to be on a plan to run the app, which is why buying a second hand unlocked iPhone will work. As long as you have a apple app store log on you can run the app. Which is why they say you can run the Traxxas app on a touch. You can't make calls on a touch so picking up a second hand touch or iPhone is easy and there is no need to venture into a phone store and sign your life away for two years. I have an iPad that I use every day and with a cable could run the x-01 telemetry also.
For $1100 you shouldn't have to buy ANYTHING else........just my opinion.

As far as it being beat to death........this is my first trip in here to check out the supercar and to do my research. So I wouldn't have the slightest clue as to what has or hasn't been beaten to death

I have an iPhone 4 and think the integration is awesome. A huge feature for me. Well done.
For those with a iPhone / iTouch, go download the app, it's pretty sick...
I bet the reason traxxas used the idevices is because the size of the android phones their is small ones and big ones the sizes could have been a big problem so they went with the idevices it would save them a lot of time too.
