HELO TC iPhone/iPod touch-controlled Helicopter
Griffin Technology reports: [edited]
HELO TC, the touch-controlled RC helicopter you control with your iPhone, iPod touch (or iPad). Download the free HELO TC app onto your iOS device, load your device into HELO TC's Flight Deck and you're ready to fly in either of two ways:
Touch Control: Use a virtual joystick on your Multi-Touch display to maneuver the chopper.
Tilt to Steer: Tilt your iOS device to move the chopper forward, backward, and side to side.
Use the app to record and store up to three Flight Plans so you, or another pilot, can easily repeat a favorite flight pattern. Make up routes among the furniture, missions to fly, obstacles to avoid, goals to achieve, and replay them later with your friends.
HELO TC comes complete with a precision twin-rotor remote-controlled helicopter and Flight Deck. The Flight Deck plugs into your iOS device's headphone jack and translates your commands into infrared signals that beam to the helicopter.
HELO TC's intuitive, easy-to-learn controls and twin-rotor design make for stable, controlled flight. And the HELO TC app provides features not available with other RC helicopters, such as Auto Land so you can bring HELO TC down for a safe landing with just a tap of the Multi-Touch display.
