We’re no strangers to indoor helicopters, but beyond our challenges in keeping them off the ceiling, we’re not big fans of their typically chintzy controllers. The Griffin Helo TC ($50; Available this Fall) overcomes this limitation by bundling a headphone port-connecting infrared module with the metal and polycarbonate ‘copter, letting you use your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad as the controller — using on-screen or Tilt-to-Fly controls — running for up to 6 to 8 minutes per charge with the ability to charge from any USB power source, and saving up to three flight plans in memory.
