The HeliControl project

helicontrol_offen (Custom)

We’ve all seen those little toy helicopters appearing everywhere. They’re getting cheaper and cheaper with some models getting down to roughly $30. The JRL team wanted to be able to control them with a PC, and figured the best way to do it was to build somewhat of a universal remote for them. The HeliControl module currently has several different types of copters programmed in, and they plan on adding more. Its not surprising to see the rise in popularity of these mini choppers, we’ve even seen some pretty extensive mods to the bodies and even mechanicals. Click around this forum to see what some people are doing to them.

    This is for infrared-controlled helis, not radio-controlled ones.

    VERY COOL! THANKS!

    When these first came out I remember thinking “There’s so much you could do with those!” and I didn’t know a mod group existed. Thanks much.

  4. The ir helis can be had for a fraction of that. walgreen’s has 2ch Picoo-z knock-offs for $5-10 occasionally!
