If I were the lucky winner of the coolest toy ever invented in the universe, I would spend the rest of my waking hours taking high definition pictures and videos of the most excellent helicopter and then post said images on every social networking channel known to man.

In fact, I would strive to create new social networking channels just to share the cooliosity of the Griffin Helo. I'm thinking Airspace Book (tm)... I'm thinking My Airspace (tm)...I'm thinking...um...well, let's just say I'm thinking.

My wife will shake her head in disappointment that her husband has found a new love in his life. My daughters...two in college, one in high school, will initially indulge my new hobby, happy to see their dad finally over his obsession on bad family portraits. They'll take an interest in my attempts to become an adept pilot, performing extraordinary aerial maneuvers. Eventually, they'll realize my obsession isn't healthy and spend their hours comforting their mom. But I won't care! I'll be the coolest guy in the neighborhood!

Make my dream a reality. I've ordered my distressed leather pilot jacket. I've ordered my vintage WWI leather helment and goggles. Complete this picture and make me the ace I always knew I was meant to become. If not...no big deal!

I would add a camera and fly it right at the end of my driveway where people are waiting to exit the subdivision...probably have to put some annoying signage on it too.

I would use it to entertain my Son. Oh yeah, and He could play with it sometimes as well!

I would use the helicopter to generally relax, and try a whole bunch of things with it.

I think i'll use it to torment the cat next door.

I would use it as an exerciser partner for my pets, with overhead shots of the training process.

I would watch the joy vibrate through the body of my seven year old neighbor, who is a natural born engineer, when he got to fly it.

I would add a wireless camera and speaker. When the home automation system detects visitors, intruders or pests we could check it out and optionally scare the pants off them! Night vision would be essential and really cool.

I have a Civil Air Patrol Cadet wing and a Middle School Technology class. This would be a great tool for areodynamic study.

I would attach a small, but very bright light to it and fly it over all my neighbours houses (don't like my neighbours) and in their bedroom windows at night, just to annoy them. Now i won't win because I'm being mean about it. LOL

I would put a Helicopter landing logo on top of my car and use the Helicopter with a video cam to locate my car in the mall parking lots.

I would do surveillance on the illegal activities that happen in my neighborhood, then report it to police and become a huge hero for breaking up a narco-terrorist ring. Or I could just annoy cats....

I think the best possible use would be to fix "The fine print" where it says, "All entries must be received no later than February 31, 2012."

DiamondPete

I'd fly it to work to deliver my reports to my boss.

I would attach attach a fishing nylon string with blinking colored lights to give the impression of a UFO, hovering in the air in my neighborhood.

If I won this Helicopter I would attach a camera to it and fly it around during the next Apple keynote and see how many devs I could drive nuts.

Hate to say it but i would probably hover the lady sunbathers in the summer w a small installed cam......

avatar

beavis64

To teach my daughter how to fly a remote helicopter without frightening small animals.

I have a small helicopter that using a regular remote but would love to have one that uses my iPhone this is a really cool idea.

Attach a go pro and take footage!

To fly it into the canyon behind our home

tie a ball of yarn to it and keep my dog occupied for a long time with jumping jacks without having to get off the couch myself.

ekuryluk

fly it around the house to annoy my wife.

iOS controlled RC Helicopter = attaching my helmet cam to the helicopter and wreaking havoc throughout my fraternity house!!!

With this fun helicopter I'd attach a GoPro camera and fly it up to a message waiting on the Eiffel Tower, for my girlfriend, asking her to marry me; during the brilliant flashing lights, at night.
She's in love with Europe's ambience as much as I'm in love with its architecture: it'd be the moment she would never forget!

wavcatcher

I'd attach a go-pro camera to it and then capture a bunch of awesome footage. Then, add custom music and sound design to it and post it up on my vimeo account!

I would dress it in a dog costume, and have it chase the "Flying people of NY"

I'd imagine I was 2 inches tall and fly up to the edge of our atmosphere with my imaginary friend Mr. Jumbles and his pet ferret, Timmy.

avatar

cooppie1

I would fly it around the back yard to keep track of my dogs. They seem to always want to get into the garden when I turn my back to them.

avatar

hitlength

I'd use it to scare the stupid squirrels off my roof.

avatar

dcoughli

I'd probably give it to my brother-in-law. He's always flying these kind of things. This one looks cool.

We would use this Chopper to end the war on dust bunnies :)

avatar

I would use it to heli-evac injured little green army men to safety. Remember, freedom isn't free.

I would tie a donut from a fishing string and fly the chopper in front of a Curves window during excersise time.

I would find my friend's gps location, attach my iphone to the helicopter with video on and have the helicopter follow my friend EVERYWHERE! Awesome

Well, straight up, I've always wanted one of these mainly for just 1 idea I have, to mount a POV camera on the bottom facing downwards & shoot video of snowboarding, skateboarding, & possibly other things as well. With snowboarding, you have downhill movement almost entirely for most riding, & especially with slopestyle, this would be great, for following along but with an aerial view & being able to get something that most people never would! I could also do something cheesy like use it at the sk8park with people sk8ing & just kind of cruise around with them as they flow around the bowls & wherever but of course from up above with the cam. This would all take some practice definitely to get the motion & direction as smooth as possible, but I still have yet to really see it be done. From what I've seen, I think a Contour would be most ideal mainly because of weight, but I know it's realistic & possible, I just need a remote control helicopter & a Contour to do it! And with this helicopter, I'd be one step closer to being able to do it & have this conceptual thought I've had become a reality! Any way, if you do happen to pick me, I guarantee you it will go to good use & help a budding videographer with an iMac and aspirations of action sports videography have a much more realistic chance of being able to do so which is something he's wanted to do for years, & that's no joke, later MacLife, peace!

I would fly it around the house, entertaining myself and my dog.

I would love to deliver love notes to my partner Chuck with this helicopter!

I would fly him a note every single day if I won this amazing gadget!

Thanks in advance for your consideration.

krlane

I work from home. This would be a great stress relief tool, and would make the day more enjoyable!

dchaille

I would use the helicopter to have fun at the beach and in the park.

acvisionace

I would mount a camera on it, film myself creating music in GarageBand, and get aerial shots of playing guitar. Also, I would connect a hook to pickup items and fly them across the rooms to other parts of the apartment. 8^)

enjoy it with my family

My helicopter already broke so I need a new helicopter. I would use it as a spy helicopter with a inferred camera. I would also use it as a crain to carry things to different locations. I have a plan to carry a water balloon on it and drop it on my neighbor.

avatar

JohnEBest

I would use it to scare off the skunks that tear up the garden. "Commander Blue, attack the large black and white dead ahead and watch the gas cloud or you can't return to base. Copy that? Over."
