Similar to the AR Drone quadricopter , iHelicopter is a real life game for your iPhone . Claiming itself to be the worlds first mobile phone controlled helicopter , it can be used to maneuver the flying machine using the inbuilt Gyroscope on your iPhone and Infrared technology .
Compared to AR Drone , iHelicopter is priced much cheap at $79 . Charges quickly through any usb device using Mini USB . We checked the videos and the iPhone control appeared sloppy unlike AR Drone which comes with sophisticated maneuvering technology and front and rear cameras which can stream live video via WiFi . The distance of operation was also limited due to IR control (infrared) as it needs line of sight to transmit signals , but then , what more can you expect from a $79 toy .
Other Features :
- Light weight metallic body parts
- Works with iPhone iPod Touch and iPad via accompanying appstore app named i-Helicopter
- Easy to operate even on slow speeds
