It seems that humans have this strange fascination with flying. There’s just something about soaring above the trees with the wind in your hair that sends chills down our spines. Unfortunately, unless you’re traveling in an airplane, you won’t often find yourself in the air. Thankfully we can at least dream, and play with R/C helicopters like this Boeing AH-61A Apache.
We’ve all seen plenty of R/C helicopters, but not often do you come across one that you can control from your smartphone. This particular one uses either your iOS or Android device as the remote control, with either onscreen controls, or by using your accelerometer. At just $40, this looks like something fun to go on your holiday shopping list.
