Flight Control on DSi

I just got an email from Firemint saying they are porting flight control to the DSi, he is a link to a video http://firemint.com/blog/?p=422. Do you guys see this succeeding on the DSi?

Seeing that the DSi has a touchscreen, I can't see this not succeeding.

I'm betting it's going to be a DSiWare download.

wow, that is a pretty good idea, figuring the DSi has a touchscreen it should work well

I wonder how it will play out with a stylus, it seems when you think of Flight Control you think of using your fingers and not a pen, and without multi-touch it sound a bit more confusing.

Yeah, I'm thinking it'd be a little awkward, but that's only cuz I've had hands-on with an iPod. DSi users will have only experienced it with a stylus so it shouldn't feel strange to them.
