Picked up the iHeli for xmas and it is pretty damn good, the only problem is I am left thinking the iPhone is not exactly the best controller.

Does anyone know how standard the IR controllers are and if I could get a real hand held controller whether it would work? I dont really want to buy another heli and I guess there would be plenty of orphaned controllers around after the heli it came with has had too many run ins with walls/floors/wives.

They all seem to use a different protocol, even amongst the same brand with different models and revisions. I have about 4 orphaned controllers and not one of them has worked with future helis that I purchased.
