NOTE: This app requires either Griffin’s HELO TC, HELO TC Assault or HELO TC Hawk Touch-Control Helicopter.

The HELO TC app transforms the Multi-Touch display of your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad into a remote control for HELO TC.

The HELO TC and HELO TC Assault touch-controlled helicopters come complete with chopper and Flight Deck. The Flight Deck plugs into your iOS device's headphone jack and translates your commands into infrared signals that beam to the helicopter.

Fly in either of two ways:
• Joystick: Use a virtual joystick to maneuver HELO TC.

• Motion: Tilt your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad to move HELO TC forward, backward, and side to side.

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 achieve, and replay them later with your friends. 

The controls are intuitive and easy to learn. The helicopter's twin-rotor design makes for stable, controlled flight, so you can concentrate on having fun (and on getting the jump on family and co-workers).

HELO TC is for indoor flying only.

Doesn't work with iPhone 5

Like a lot of other people said, I was using this with my iPhone 4 and it worked great. Tons of fun! Then I got an iPhone 5 and now it doesn't work anymore. Maybe it's something that I'm doing wrong but I can't figure it out.

Challenging…but Amazing!

I have read so many reviews where people are complaining that their phone is too big or that the app is delayed. First of all it says right on the box and in the manual that only iphone 4 and 4s work. NOT THE 5!
Also, if you are having problems with keeping the helicopter in the air or it just won't stay up, go to SETTINGS and turn on EXPERT. This allows you to fully engage the motor to keep the helo tc in the air.
It is definitely challenging to keep the heli at a steady stance but with practice comes perfection.

This is a great toy and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
