Griffin Helo Remote Chopper

Is there anything cooler than a remote controlled helicopter? How about one that's controlled by an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch? Griffin's Helo RC (US$49.95) is just that: it's a twin-rotor remote controller helicopter that you control using a specially designed iOSapp. It charges via a USB connection and connects to your iDevice with what Griffin calls a Flight Deck, a slide in box that uses an Infrared connection to talk to the chopper. You can use your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch's accelerometer to control the helicopter, or use traditional controls including a virtual joystick. You can even record up to three flight plans to play back later, though you'll need to be quick as the battery only lasts eight minutes.
