A gadget that is sure to be under the tree for many kids this Christmas is this super cool R/C copter. Or should I say P/C copter? That’s right, it’s a PHONE controlled helicopter, practically making those old-fashioned remotes a thing of the past.
Using a free downloadable app, this i-helicopter turns your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Android phone into a remote. The remote app has several awesome functions, including a button that turns off all the LED lights on the helicopter (increasing it’s flight time by a few more minutes.)

What’s in the Box?
In each box you get a USB Charger, an Infrared Control System (it connects to your phone), spare blades and propellers, the helicopter and a manual.
The Helicopter is super easy to use and has some pretty cool features like motion control. You can tilt your phone and the copter turns with you. It also has a bunch of LED’s while still maintaining flight time for about 8 minutes which is impressive for such a small little copter. The charge time takes between 25-30 minutes and the USB charger lights up to let you know when it’s done.
Yup, this helicopter is pretty sweet. I did some practicing and I managed to decorate my tree this year entirely through the use of my i-helicopter. I think it turned out pretty rad. Martha Stewart, eat your heart out.
