Priced at $49.99, this full featured gaming and drone controller is compatible with all iOS devices with a Lightning™ connection running iOS 7 or later. Rotor Riot is a Lightning connected controller that assures gamers a clean, interference and latency free hook up for a superior gaming experience. In addition, the zero-gravity arm securely holds your device in place while providing a superbly balanced system for hours of tireless gameplay. 


Rotor Riot’s wired controller draws less energy than a pair of earphones and now with its pass-through charging port, users can charge their device while playing their favorite game. 


Rotor Riot has also teamed up with Ludu Mapp – a companion app for mobile gamers. Ludu Mapp is available worldwide and provides information regarding the mobile games that are controller compatible (over 1,000) along with curated categories, hand-picked offers, game walkthroughs and tips and controller updates.
