If you can’t get enough of remote controlled helicopters which you can control using your iOS device, Swann has got three new toys for you to play with. Called Black Swann, i-Fly Micro Lightning and Sky Eye, these helicopters are operated via a provided IR remote or with an app (iFly) and adaptor combination for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The Sky Eye and Black Swann feature an onboard camera for recording videos or shooting photographs.
All three helicopters have a flying time of up to 8 minutes per charge, and the helicopters are recharged via the remote or USB. And images/videos shot from the onboard cameras are also retrieved via USB. Prices for the helicopters start at $69.99 for the i-Fly Micro Lightning and $99.99 for the Sky Eye and Black Swann. Swann’s RC helicopters will be available for purchase from Fry’s Electronics, BrandSmart, and other major retailers coming soon.
