We’ve seen a plenty of this stuff already utilizing the popularity of the iOS devices, like the the Parrot AR Drone Quadricopter and a lot more. This could be endless if we’ll talk about all of them but today Griffin outed a new Helo TC RC Helicopter, part of their AppPowered line, which is of course controlled by your supported iOS devices.
The helicopter is controlled via an on-screen flight stick or via the built-in accelerometer of your iOS devices which they called “tilt-to-fly”. Then if you think that you have already perfect the flight routine you have an option to record the controls up to 3 different flight routines which can be reflown in single push of a button. Now that’s a bit interesting if you’ll be giving a flight exhibition to your friends.
The Helo TC can fly for around 8-minutes for a single 30-minute USB-charge and once happen that you accidentally crash damaging the rotors there’s a spare included in the box. The Helo TC is listed for $56. (£34.99) –a perfect gift.
