Just for fun, why not get dad one of these HELO TC Assault helicopters from Griffin Technology? I had something similar last spring and, quite honestly, it was a blast!! Here’s what Griffin has to say…
Fly and attack with Griffin’s newest remote-control helicopter, equipped with six live-fire missiles, ideal for covert missions (like surprising your cubicle mates)
Plug the included Flight Deck module into the headphone jack of any iOS or Android device, download the HELO TC Assault app, and users are ready to fly and attack from the sky
Flight Deck translates commands from phone into infrared signals that beam to the helicopter
App also provides features not available with other RC helicopters, such as Auto Land
Fly in one of two ways, Touch Control (using a virtual joystick on the touchscreen display) or Tilt to Steer (tilting the smartphone to maneuver the chopper)
Similar to the original HELO TC, features a twin-rotor design and ability to record up to three flight plans for easy repetition
(The non-assault version is just $39.99 and can be ordered here.)
