Connection while controlling?

Does this Quadricopter connect directly to my iOS device or does it go through my wireless router?

    The Drone connects to one device at a time using its own WiFi network. With some adjustments to the settings, you can make the Drone work with a separate WiFi router or, more easily, with a WiFi repeater (such as one by amped). Using a WiFi repeater not only greatly improves the range of the Drone, but also reduces the impact of radio interference from other electronic devices, power lines, etc.

  • The original AR.Drone has it's own wireless signal that you connect to from your iPad or iPhone. It wasn't from your router - you connect directly to the drone's wireless signal.

  • The A.R Drone 2.0 Creates its own wifi netwrok witch you connect to using your phone you then launch the free flight application to pilot it.

  • "Using the AR.Drone 2.0 Wi-Fi N connection, the AR.Drone 2.0 can go up to 164 feet/50 meters from you (depending on your Wi-Fi environment)."
