SmartPlane is the “World’s first” smartphone controlled aeroplane – at least according to its producer, a company called TobyRich. That claim is debatable, but regardless, the SmartPlane promises a fun flying experience of up to 30 minutes (if you use thermals, no doubt) and fully proportional rudder control via bluetooth. You steer the plane by tilting your iPhone, with an on-screen slider allowing for motor control while the app makes air traffic control noises to complete the embarassment illusion.

Currently only iOS devices are supported, with an Android app planned for mid-2014. The price is EUR 69.- (which at the time of writing translates to USD 94.-) and if you’re still interested, you can purchase one from smartplane.net right now.
