iPhone 4 controlled helicopter for 50 quid
Put off by Parrot AR. Drone's hefty price tag? AppToyz release cheaper alternative
There’s no doubting that the Parrot Ar. Drone is a gadget that we have all looked at with keen interest. However, at a cool £300 it’s hard to justify purchasing.
Now, though, there is a cheaper, albeit not quite as sophisticated, alternative.
The people at AppToyz have come up with their own attachment that turns your iPhone into a remote control to operate their existing remote control helicopters.
The AppToyz Helicopter costs just £50 and works in the same fashion as the Parrot using an attachment that plugs into the earphone jack and controlled using the touch screen of your iPhone or iPod touch.
