The Griffin Helo TC is an iPhone, iPod Touch, & iPad controlled RC helicopter with the help of a dongle. You can purchase the full package which includes everything you need except 4 AAA batteries. Inside you get the dongle which sticks onto your iDevice, the Help TC Helicopter, USB charging cord, and some replacement blades. The helicopter itself is fun to fly but also a little difficult and could take some getting use to. The IR beam seems to work find and connect fine indoors and barely reaches outdoors. You're going to need to keep it inside and ace some rom for it not to crash into walls. Once you have it flying, it fairly simple to keep it in the air with joystick controls and a throttle on your screen. You can unlock Expert mode which will allow you to fly higher after a certain amount of flight time. The chopper hold a fair charge, about 15-20 minutes before it starts to die but it can charge back up in as little as 35 minutes. Overall for $50, if you have the room this would be a cool investment. If you're buying this for your child, be sure to supervise them as the helicopters plastic blades could possible them, it's not too bad though.
