Accessory Spotter: HELO TC App-Controlled Helicopter




Product Description:

Download the free app, load your device into HELO TC’s Flight Deck and you’re ready to fly indoors in either of two ways:

  • Touch Control: Use a virtual joystick on your Multi-Touch display or touchscreen to maneuver the chopper.
  • Tilt to Steer: Tilt your 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.

This is a toy helicopter that uses your iOS device and a custom app as a controller.

It works pretty much like any other device of the sort. You download the app on your iOS device and use the transmitter to plug into the device and control the chopper. Truth be told, this little helicopter is okay. We have tested many devices like this one and it’s no different from the others. They all work pretty much the same way.

If there is one feature that we’d call pretty good, it’s the controller shell. It has little clips that hold your iPhone or iPod touch in place. It’s $50, and it can be fun for the kids. However, we think any such device will do the trick, some may not require the use of your iPhone. Maybe it can be fun for the bored office worker during some down time? In that case, it can be a nice alternative to Facebook.
