iRemoco RC iOS Controlled Helicopter Launching

iRemoco is an RC helicopter that is controlled by an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. The kit comes with a radio device that connects to the 30 pin dock connector on your iOS device. When connected, you load up an app and can then be used to fly an RC helicopter around with either two on-screen analogue controls, or by a single control and motion to move the helicopter around a room.

The app also can be used to switch between three different frequencies so that up to three helicopters can be used at the same time.

The company behind iRemoco is Ternosis who are based in the UK. At the moment, they are using the Kickstarter service to raise funds to build the units. At the time of writing this, 115 backers have pledged $15,509 with a goal of $28,000 initially.

The iRemoco app is available for free in iTunes. Take a look at the video below for a quick demonstration of how it all works:

We have to say that the idea is fantastic. RC Helicopters are always fun to fly, but mixing that with an iOS based device as a controller makes it look even more entertaining!!!
