Is it possible to use an xbox controller as a wireless remote control for an electric rc helicopter? If it is, can anybody send me information as to how to do it. If not, does anybody know of any cheap controllers I could buy.

I have seen that article and it did interest me, though the new computer transmitter only reaches about ten meters. Even if it could reach farther, it would cost far too much. I'm only in highschool. So far, the only way I can think of doing it is to gut a real transmitter and mod a controller to fit the electronics. But other than that I have not been able to find any way to do it.
