RC Heli – Indoor Racing [rating: 4/5]
Ethervision teamed up with iDev2 and Frozen Pepper to bring a new and fresh addition to App Store. There is a growing number of hobbyists who fly electric powered craft and love to play with simulators to feel the excitement of controlling their own helicopters. RC Heli is a 3 Channel sim capable of soaring, diving and can even hover in one spot.
The game is set in a highly detailed and stunning 3D indoor environment and offers three modes of play (Tutorial, Free Flight and Race) We highly recommend you complete the tutorial mode before you start playing other modes to familiarize yourself with the controls.
Tutorial mode features detailed instructions explaining right and left stick controls, you can also practice hovering, flying and landing on helipad to recharge. For those who just want to relax and enjoy the beautiful 3-story house the game features Free Flight mode with no time limits. Race Mode includes 6 challenging tracks where your objective is to collect all coins in the given time limit keeping battery and damage in control.
The controls are quite responsive but the game does have a learning curve. We are impressed with the attention to detail in making the experience of flying RC Heli realistic with chopper sounds and shaky flight. Current version of RC Heli has three viewing angles which include; 3rd person, cockpit view and fixed view. High scores can be stored on the device and globally to see where you stand and can also be shared via Twitter and Facebook.
RC Heli – Indoor Racing is super fun for all ages and a must have simulator for your iPhone!
