Control Griffin’s Helo RC with your iPhone
Pilots can choose two flight modes with their iPhone – touchscreen control using the device’s multi-touch screen or tilt to steer which uses the built-in accelerometer.
It will also work with the iPad and the iPod Touch.
It’s also possible to create up to three flight plans. This means pilots can record and store three flights and then replay them later.
The Helo TC comes with a Flight deck – the battery powered charger which also has a clip to hold the iPhone.
There’s also a cable to plug into the iPhone’s headphone jack to enable infra-red commands to be sent the helicopter.
And if you get together with your friends who have also bought a Griffin Helo RC there’s the ability to set three different channels so they can all fly at the same time.
Griffin has created a great short film to showcase the Helo RC which we have embedded in our story above.
The Helo RC is priced at $US49.95 and available to order through the Griffin website.
At this time it is unknown when it will be available to buy in Australian stores.
