Using iPhone to control helicopter

Use the App to control the helicopter

Take to the skies without leaving your couch, thanks to this smartphone-controlled IR chopper. The iControl Helicopter comes with a Smart Link Control that plugs into any iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad or Android Device.

Just load the free Smart Control App on your mobile and feel it rumble as you fire up the iControl’s engines. Steer with the simple touchscreen controls; or better yet, tilt your phone forwards, backwards, left and right. The three channel control lets you and your friends fly your iControls together; and advanced gyro directional stabilisers ensure they’re a doddle to control.

Customer Reviews

Disappointing. I have been trying to make this work with an iPad touch for two days (much to my young son's frustration). Everything seems to be set up correctly, everything is charged and flashing but nothing happens when I attempt lift off. I have looked at other websites that seem to suggest that it is only compatible with certain iPod touch devices???? Buy one with it's own controller!
