BeeWi takes smartphone control to new heights with the Storm Bee

Wireless accessory manufacturer BeeWi, today announces the sample availability of a Bluetooth controlled helicopter called the Storm Bee.

After winning ‘Best New Bluetooth product’ at the coveted ‘SIG Best of CES Awards’ earlier this year, the Storm Bee is back and available in the UK. Acting as a fantastic stocking filler or Christmas gift for big and small kids alike, the BeeWi Storm Bee is fully controlled by a free downloadable app on either a smartphone or tablet, allowing users the freedom to fly the helicopter in any direction, without the need for additional adaptors or dongles. iOS and Android compatible Storm Bees are now available at a discounted price (£59.99 and £49.99 respectively) from Amazon.

After downloading the free BeeWi Helipad app and pairing directly via Bluetooth 2.1, budding pilots can demonstrate their ‘Blue Thunder-esque’ navigational skills with friends and family via intuitive gyroscope motion control sensors. Simply tilting or turning a paired smartphone or tablet will take the helicopter to new heights in the home. A touch screen interface is also available on the App Store or Play Store for those who prefer flight at their fingertips. Once in the air, RAF wannabes can enjoy hours of fun completing time trials and dodging obstacles in either a beginner or expert mode.

Dual rotostructure blades allow for extra stability when flying and provide an enhanced user experience as the Storm Bee hovers or lands. Designed primarily for indoor use and measuring only 18 x 8 x7.5 cm, the user friendly helicopter boasts up to 10 minutes of intuitive and stable flight time when piloting the device within a 20 metre range.

The BeeWi Storm Bee is available in stylish black for Android users and stand-out red for those with an Apple device. Other key specifications include:

  • Bluetooth 2.1, Class 2
  • BeeWi HeliPad app available from AppStore, Google Play
  • Dimensions – 18 x 8 x 7.5cm
  • Rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery
  • Up to 20 metre range

Jamie Dudderidge, country manager, BeeWi, comments: “Toys that incorporate smart devices are tipped to be one of Christmas 2012’s ‘must have’ gifts and we are delighted that the BeeWi Storm Bee’s newly discounted price will make it an affordable and intuitive gadget that can be enjoyed by the whole family.”
