    27 Download i-helicopter from play store. 
    28 Use a dual head audio cable to connect audio jack of android device to line-in/microphone in laptop, run the app, turn volume up to highest, and move the throttle to a middle point.  
    29 Start recording with Audacity. The left channel is the IR code without carrier, the right channel is IR code with carrier. 
    30 IR code in audio/wave format is pretty easy to understand:

    4250You can tell from the pictures, that the signal is originally a sine wave. With volume going up, the signal gets cut off and then becomes a square wave, which is the IR Code we want to send out. (that's why we need to turn the volume up to max to use the IR dongle).
