Fun Packed Flying
on 12 November 2013
I had the first version Lightspeed iHelicopter and loved it, but the camera on this latest
version is a real laugh.
The helicopter is very stable as it has an on board gyroscope and with a bit of practice
you can keep it in the air for many minutes and do some fun turns and stuff.
Controlling it with my iPhone is very cool indeed, and I personally think the "motion control", where
you tilt the phone to move the helicopter in that direction is the easiest way and most fun.
I like the fact that it includes everything required in the pack (so no need for batteries), and the
instruction manual is well written and easy to follow.
The 2GB included SD card, you just slot in the back of the helicopter undercarriage to and it
records the video or still camera shots onto it.
One bit of advice - when you plug the included card reader into your computer to move the
recordings to it, make sure you download a free video player called "VLC video player" as
this will make sure you do not have any codec problems playing the video. So after
getting the clip on to your computer just right click it and select "play with VLC video player".
If you have half the fun I had with this it will be money well spent. Enjoy!
