What’s Inside the Box
The design is carefully crafted and the materials are of the best quality to ensure that your helicopter is protected against bumps and crashes. The main body frame has been built out of durable metal and measures 22.5 cm in length. Included in the package you will receive:

Once you receive your iHelicopter you will need to use the USB charger cable to prepare for the first flight. If you charge for forty five minutes you will have around 8-10 minutes of flight time. The transmitter will also need charging and will provide you with 120 minutes of playing time. During your first charge download the free app for your handset and learn the controls.
App Control Panel
The application can be used like a traditional remote control if you wish. You will find all of the typical controls such as:
