Voice-Controlled R/C Helicopter

By Evan Ackerman

The learning curve for flying R/C helicopters can be pretty steep, even for some of the simpler 3 and 4 channel models. Taiyo is trying to make it a little bit easier with this voice controlled heli, which responds to 5 commands: “start engine,” “up,” “hold,” “down” and “stop.” It really should respond to things like “come baaaaack” but with a range of only 30 feet you may not have too much to worry about. The 7 inch long helicopter also comes with a remote control, and will retail for $60 sometime later this year.
