Actually works! I purchased this helicopter after buying a HELO TC, then returning it to exchange it for another HELO TC, and finally tried a different one (this one). The HELO TC would not even connect to the phone. After trying 2 friends Android phones I tested it on someone's iPhone, and what do ya know, it worked. Seeing as I don't have a POS iPhone, I ditched the HELO TC JUNK and tried this out (this one was also $10 less). In comparison to the HELO TC, this bird actually works on android devices and performs admirably. Battery life is short, but that's expected. A few small modifications to the heli to reduce weight really helps get it off the ground and makes it slightly more mobile & quick. - I would also recommend you invest in another battery to replace the one that's built into it. If you remove some things that aren't necessary and reduce the weight you can get an 850 MaH battery that will extend flight times to about 8-10 minutes (in my case). If you choose to do this, make sure you know how to fly it well before making the modifications as it will fly slightly differently. - If flight time is ok for you, reducing weight only improves mobility! :D
Its ok I like it but so hard to control I keep hitting trees and losing conection also it needs a hight level because the one it has now only controls speed but it works and its better than all the airhogs I have.
Controls are unusable in New app Prior to update it worked perfect! It seems now its unable to multi touch or something. Horrible and unusable....don't update!
The new update does not work good Someone please tell me how i can get the first version back. The one with the ske blue theme .if you havent done the update dont. When you try to neg trim. The helecopter goes full power up and spins out of control.
Hard to use, unpleasant look The joystick mode does not work on my Razr or Archos tablet. The stick only moves fotward. The screen is ugly. Airplane mode won't work as ssuggested since wifi gets disabled. Needs a better app like the one on the iPhone!
No good Use to be able to fly my copter but new one doesn't even connect what a bunch of crap
1. Graphic interface update.
2. Control UI update to work with tablet and ICS 4.
Wifi video transmission, remote monitoring toys supporting application software, can be remotely controlled remotely piloted aircraft.
