iSuper Helicopters -- remote control flying fun for iPhone

Georgia and I had a lot of fun with iPhone-controlled helicopters a few weeks ago on TiPb TV -- so much fun the iMore Store folks got jealous and went and stocked some iSuper Helicopters of their own. They've got two sizes, large and small, so you can choose how big you want to roll fly.

All you have to do is grab an iSuper Helicopter, download the free app, and take to the skies.

Features

  • Built-in gyroscope for stable control
  • User-friendly interface
  • Durable metal frame
  • Record and playback functionality of flights and patterns
  • Safe landing function
  • Emergency landing function
  • Play music while flying

Interesting that the tail rotor is parallel to the main rotors, unlike those of real choppers. Thus it can only contribute to the iSuper's pitch, not yaw as with other helicopters' vertical tail rotors. I wonder how the iSuper "turns" in the air. Maybe by adjusting the lower main rotor's speed to let torque spin the body? Hmmm...

FYI you can pick up non-iPhone controlled versions of these (tacticle feedback is better anyway) for $20 on Amazon.
FlopTech: You are correct, the helicopter doesn't roll to turn, it just turns left/right in place. Not the same as a "real" helicopter, but for $20 it's still plenty fun!

Thanks! Looks like a lot of fun. I wonder when they'll be Siri-controlled...

I heard that if you receive a phone call, it looses communication with the copter and it may crash. Is this true?

Definitely consider that that you stated. Your favourite reason seemed to be at the internet the simplest factor to remember of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as other folks think about worries that they plainly do not recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as well as outlined out the entire thing with no need side effect , folks can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you
