Griffin have today started shipping their latest-generation Android- and iOS-guided remote control helicopter, the Helo TC Assault craft. The device is guided by you, and your device, through an app running on your tablet, smartphone or heck, even an iPod touch.


The new version is different to the previous-generation release, where it can actually, wait for it: fire toy missiles from two spring-loaded launchers. YES! While using the app, the user is able to create a virtual joystick on their screen to pilot the helicopter in any direction.




They can also issue the same commands by tilting their device in certain directions. The app also sports the ability to save up to three flight plans for recreating the helicopter's route at a future time - think of it as the future Flight Control, but way better.


The Helo TC is available now, for $60.
