Griffin Launches HELO TC Helicopter, Controlled By iPhone App!

  • August 17, 2011 11:24 am

We’re big iOS fans around the GS halls. Add to that a healthy amount of obsessiveness over new and exciting toys/gadgets. With that said we’re downright drooling over Griffin’s new HELO TC remote control helicopter that uses an iPhone app and “Flight Deck” hardware attachment for control. But things are much cooler than you think. While you can use the onscreen controls to maneuver the HELO TC, the snap-on controller pack uses the iPhone’s built-in accelerometers and gyroscopes meaning “button free” play time. If you happen to notice a lack of posts in the next week or so, you know what we’re doing…

The HELO TC makes use of a built-in rechargeable battery that can be charged via any USB power source while the Flight Deck module takes 4-AAA batteries and plugs into the iPhone’s headphone jack. Now available from Griffin Technology for $44.99.

Check out the demo video after the break.
