iHelicopters – iOS Controlled Helicopter [Video]

Remember AR Drone? I’m sure lots of people really wish that can afford one. Having a price tag of US$300, people reconsider and reconsider. It is sure too high a price tag for impulse buy, but how about $60?

iHelicopters came out with this iOS Controlled Helicopter which you can fly with just an App. It is pretty cool, although it does not have video camera on the body unlike AR Drone. But this is something that messes can afford without thinking too hard on it.
