Griffin, the name behind great music accessories and gear, phone accessories and remote control helicopters powered by smartphones, has announced something that completely rocks. No it’s not some kind of bass pushing head, we’re talking an Android controlled helicopter that fires missles.
This ain’t your 12 year olds helicopter. Let the kids play with the original Helo TC while dad, his Android phone and his Helo TC Assault maneuver around the yard in stealth mode until it’s too late. A missile is streaming from the Helo TC Assault and BOOM the kids copters are knocked into oblivion.
Mom’s had one too many helicopters get caught in her after work glass of wine, or maybe she’s tired of little Johnnys original Helo TC bonking her in the head while she’s trying to finish a report on her laptop. Mom can strap the remote control onto her Samsung Galaxy S II and get her Helo TC Assault off the ground in seconds, living rooms, bedrooms, the kitchen, no spot is safe from the Helo TC Assault when moms behind the wheel. Missiles left and right, sending even the rotweiller for cover.
More after the break
This is one bad ass remote control helicopter. Here are the other features:
- Flight Deck module that plugs into the headphone jack of any iOS or Android device, turning the device into a controller after downloading the HELO TC Assault app
- Six live-fire missiles launched via a quick tap on the smartphone’s touchscreen
- Auto Land feature with tap of touchscreen controls
- Two ways to fly: touch control (using a virtual joystick on the touchscreen display) or tilt to steer (tilting the smartphone’s motion sensors to maneuver the chopper)
- Intuitive, easy-to-learn and easy-to-use controls
- Ability to record up to three Flight Plans for easy repetition
- Stable twin-rotor design
