Helo TC Touch Controlled Helicopter now available from Verizon Wireless

Helo Touch Control

I haven’t played with a remote controlled anything in years, so when Verizon Wireless asked if I would like to play with the Helo TC helicopter I couldn’t resist. The Helo TC is a RC helicopter that you control using your iOS or Android device.  Keep a look out for our full review of the Helo TC in the near future and read on for Verizon’s product description.

Rule the office airspace with HELO TC, the touch-controlled RC helicopter you control with your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Android device. Download the free app, load your device into HELO TCs Flight Deck and you’re ready to fly indoors in either of two ways:

  • Touch Control – Use a virtual joystick on your Multi-Touch display or touchscreen to maneuver the chopper.
  • Tilt to Steer – Tilt your device to move the chopper forward, backward, and side to side.
  • Use the app to record and store up to three Flight Plans so you, or another pilot, can easily repeat a favorite flight pattern. Make up routes among the furniture, missions to fly, obstacles to avoid, goals to acheive, and replay them later with your friends.

Ready to Fly? HELO TC’s comes complete with a precision twin-rotor remote-controlled helicopter and Flight Deck. The Flight Deck plugs into your device’s headphone jack and translates your commands into infrared signals that beam to the helicopter.

HELO TC’s intuitive, easy-to-learn controls and twin-roter design make for stable, controlled flight. And the HELO TC app provides features not available with other RC helicopters, such as Auto Land so you can bring HELO TC down for a safe landing with just a tap.
