Good deal: 28% off iPhone-controlled Cobra iHelicopter


We’ve seen a lot of good deals on Apple-related gear over the past few days. There’s the Steve Jobs/Jony Ive book combo for 55% off, the iPhone 5/5s accessory bundle for 46%, and today we have another one to share with you.

Stack Social is offering the popular Cobra iHelicopter at 28% off. Using an audio jack transmitter, the remote control helicopter can be steered with either an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, and it shoots tiny missiles on command…
