The joystick, the switches and the buttons have been ditched in favor of the Chorus Helicopter Remote Control. The former dashboard might be more familiar to a practiced RC user, but this disk-shaped device is a great deal more logical.
Holding the round gadget in one hand, the user can simply adjust the rotatable dial top, clockwise or counterclockwise to turn the aircraft right or left. The cap also pivots slightly on a vertical axis, allowing one to initiate forward or backward movement of the electronic toy.
The circular shape of Ben Wahrlich's contraption makes it an object that's much more relatable to the spinning blades of the chopper. It's a great deal more instinctive and ergonomic. To top it off, the Chorus Helicopter Remote Control is equipped with a concealed trigger in the base for deliberate height changes.
