    Advice on FFT using IQ samples

    I have seen Klaus excellent examples, but I am new to FFT, so forgive me for the basic question.

    I have live IQ samples from a Radio Receiver via the Android USB port, and I would like to see the RF spectrum.

    I realise that I could reconstruct the voltage using SQRT of I2+Q2

    Then feed it in FFT1.Transform like the Audio examples.

    Is there a better way to use the I and Q data with

    TimeAmplitude, the time domain amplitude, your array
    FFTReal, the real componants of the FFT
    FFTImag, the imaginary componants of the FFT

    or even

    Also is the FFT a complex fft or real fft
    In-phase Quadrature.
    Used to denote the complex format on which the RF data is

    Currently no.
    I have no experience in RF data nor In-phase Quadrature.
