Lightweight iOS enabled Bluetooth helicopter is tons of fun on the cheap

One of the greatest things about smartphones and Bluetooth-enabled tablets is the sheer amount of crazy gadgets that go along with them. You can control lights, air conditioners, cameras and more, all from your iPhone or iPad -- but what about things that are designed for fun? What about Bluetooth-enabled toys? Today, we're here to tell you about one of the most fun gadgets we've had a chance to look at, Griffin's Helo TC Chopper.

Control via virtual joystick, accelerometer

Griffin has introduced an R/C helicopter, the Helo TC, that is controlled by an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. Like many ultra-micro size helicopters, the Helo uses a coaxial rotor design with counter-rotating blades to improve stability and eliminate the need for a complex control system. Users can choose to tilt the iOS device or use a virtual joystick to move the helicopter forward, backward and side to side.
