The HELO TC is a twin-rotor indoor helicopter that includes a built-in rechargeable battery that recharges with a USB cable.

The HELO TC is priced at US$49.99 and is available at the Griffin Web site. Don’t, however, plan your flight adventure weekend just yet. Griffin is showing the HELO TC as out of stock, so it may be some time before you can get one in your hands.
