We mentioned the iHelicopter back in August and it looked like one of the better iOS controlled flying devices out there. Today, it got a significant update.
The $69.99 Cobra iHelicopters now get to go on the offensive. The Cobra is armed with two missiles that can take out targets over 6 feet away.
The older version (without missiles) can be found as low as $50
Press release and more info follows…
