Yes, the MindFlex uses the same TGAM chip from NeuroSky as is in the headset we used (currently the MindWave Mobile). You'll need to perform a hardware hack to get the data stream out, but Puzzlebox Synapse will parse it on any platform.https://github.com/PuzzleboxIO/synapse-python
Yes that's correct. You're sending packets with the complete settings for all motors and their power levels at a constant rate (determined by the helicopter's RC controller protocol), which is sort of a "keep alive" for the helicopter when sent with the "no_thrust" configuration. If you didn't send any packets at all the helicopter might "time out" after a certain period.
We always appreciate the support! You can cause the Orbit (or a hacked helicopter as per above) to take flight while you are focused or mentally relaxed and so on, but there's not enough information in most consumer-grade EEG headsets to be able to actually steer as well. For now you have to tilt your mobile phone or table and steer that way. However we're currently working on a guide that allows you to use an OpenBCI EEG and build your own headset to perform "motor imagery" for steering by using imaginary hand and feet gestures: https://puzzlebox.io/telekinesis/
