Griffin Helo TC RC Helicopter Review

Overview

With their new Helo TC RC Helicopter, Griffin aims to improve upon the general formula for indoor RC helicopters by swapping out an iOS device for the standard RC remote. The end result is a bit of a letdown, but the brilliance Griffin aimed for can still be seen, though it is obscured by a few glaring issues.

The Machine Itself

Before getting into the flight and control of the Helo, it bears mentioning just what you get for the $50 asking price. The helicopter itself is of spectacular construction, the all metal body covered by a surprisingly high quality plastic shroud. Overall the helicopter feels exceptionally solid, with no flimsy parts or questionable materials used that I could notice. Visually, the Helo is quite appealing, especially with the LED’s flashing in a dimly lit room.

  1. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!
