Griffin is set to unleash a remote controlled helicopter called the Helo TC. The Helo TC will be controlled by an app which will be available for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. We have seen one of these before but where this helicopter differs to the already available Parrot AR Drone is in the price. The Helo TC will be available later this year for just £34.99 which is approximately $56.
To be fair, it is a totally different bit of technology compared to the Parrot AR Drone. The Helo TC is only suitable for indoor use, has a maximum flying time of just 8 minutes and has no on-board video capturing devices.
Control of the helicopter will be done by a dedicated app which will be available for free in the App Store. The app will utilize the built in accelerometer; which will allow any budding pilots to navigate by simply tilting the iPhone in the direction they want it to go. There is also the option to use an onscreen joystick too. The Helo TC app can record and store up to 3 flight plans, perfect for annoying friends and family!
Look for this one popping up in Apple Stores later in the year. I don’t know about you but I am all over this when it becomes available.
