Helicopter piloted by mobile devices

Griffin today shipped the latest generation of its Android- and iOS-guided remote control helicopter. The Helo TC Assault craft is maneuvered using an app running on a smartphone, tablet or even an iPod touch (free, App Store, Google Play Store). The new version earns its name from firing toy missiles from two spring-loaded launchers.

Using the app, a user can create a virtual joystick on their screen to pilot the helicopter in any direction. They can also issue the same commands by tilting their device in a given direction. The app saves up to three flight plans for recreating the helicopter's route at a future time.

The Helo TC itself, available now, costs $60.
