Default i-Helicopter Works on Android

Hey guys, i recently bought an i-helicopter which is told to be working mostly with iPhones.

I got mine yesterday, i tried it and it is working just fine with our GS2.
For 30 euros, it is a funny thing to have around.

Check it out.

The reason i am posting this, is because i was searching all over the internet for infos, and if this thing was really going to work.... well i didn't, so there you go.

i got it from MiniInTheBox

i don't know for cheaper. google it.

as for the app. you need to download i-helicopter from appbrain, in order to work.

And you need to stop any music application - service that might be running.

the only bug with the helicopter is when you receive a call, and suddenly you don't have a remote for the heli , then it goes... MAYDAY!!

Yeah got a couple recently, works awesomely... Infrared transmitter plugs into earphone plug. Very cool to play with... Pity all remote control toys have been banned from my workplace, be fun to buzz the co-workers...

A loophole... They never said anything about phone controlled toys.....
I-helicopter is also available on android market...
Cheers...

Can work these copters for iPod in our Galaxy? There are with IR jack adapter. Others have iPod plug, then cannot work.

Solidly built, but still using IR, so extra transmitter + when the sensor can't "see" the transmitter, the heli drops like a rock.
Had one like this (although not phone controlled), dies on the second day.
