Takes practice but works fine. For those who said the helicopter does not take off, you are flying it in Beginner Mode, and the control won't let you use the full throttle, that is for people that have never piloted one of these RC Helicopters, it is not that easy. Go to setting and put the check mark in Expert option, then you'll be able to use all the engine power. Besides that, I have used the app in an LG G3 and in an Xperia SP, and my only complaint is that the controls in the app dont scale to bigger screens, Everything else, GOOD!
Great but incompatible with beats audio The helicopter is really well made and can fly amazingly with the correct phones! If you have a phone with beats audio enabled on it then there will be issues where the helicopter just won't respond to your device. It works with android devices other than that! My only other issue is the flight time. It's a shame that it only lasts 10 minutes as when mastered, it doesn't take long to flatten.
Note 5 user It'll only tutn the blades on. .not strong enough to lift off...so it'll just spin in a circle. .also..the control pad is very small on my phone. ..returning it for my money back for some headphones.....MAD! My daughter was really excited about this choppa...hurt her little heart 😢
Tiny, tiny screen The software does work but it's so tiny you could only look at it on a watch that's how small the phone screen is on this program. The software is actually junk and needs a severe update for newer models of phones and being that it is a corporation that sells helicopters you would think that they would be able to get a programmer in there to write software updates for this package. Sorry guys you can do way better than this. This software is junk in my opinion and someone needs a rewrite of this software.
Remove Digital Signal Processing or DSP Many people are having problems getting the app to work. I sorted it out and it turns out, that any type of sound modification on your phone such as Beats Audio or a DSP pack which changes the sound profile, will interfere with this app. I removed the DSP and everything works fine
The update broke it. This latest update no longer works with the Samsung Galaxy S3, 4, and 5, as well as the Note 2. I have both the S4 and 5, as well as my S3 that I still keep as a MP3 player. It used to run fine on them all, but it will not work, now. I tried it on my wife's Note 2 and nothing.
Reminder: Most Motorola devices require a change in the device settings to work properly with HELO TC. Be sure to read the dialogues in app prompting you to make this change!
