RC Helicopters

     Radio controlled helicopters which are generally known as RC Helicopters are prototypical aircraft that are available in distinct varieties and compositions. Remote controlled helicopters are operated by users with the use of remote control because of the small servo motors that have been put in a specific part of the aircraft. Most people who operate RC helicopters do this for purposes of entertainment.

RC helicopters are controlled by using a transmitter (this is where any action that you perform when flying the helicopter is introduced), which sends signals to the receiver, which then transmits them to various electronic servos. RC helicopters can be classified into two major types - single rotor helis and co-axial RC helis. Single rotor RC helis are further divided into fixed pitch or collective pitch helicopters. Pitch relates to the way the main rotor is controlled. Coaxial RC Helis are the most fundamentally stable type of RC helicopters. They have two counter rotating blades that powered by two separate brushed motors. These types of RC Helis are capable of moving from side to side or a lateral motion. They fly very rapidly and they are more vulnerable to the wind to drag them off and these are most suitable ones for RC helimodelling.

The RC helicopters are one of the most common RC hobby toys in the market in recent times and they come in a very broad range of rates and varieties. A great variety of RC helicopters are available these days. This variety includes those with different styles, made of different materials, with different power sources, in different price amounts and sizes. In the hobby market, you will readily find a variety of small, medium and large-sized rc helis for helimodelling. As far as styles and flying are concerned, large RC helicopters are more realistic and stable. Even if you are very comfortable with RC airplanes, you will find flying an RC helicopter is a whole new ball game.

If you want to know what the best RC helis is for someone who has never engaged in rc hobby, then there is no one answer that satisfies everyone. There are factors to be considered to be able you to know what is the best RC helicopter available in the market like your budget, target location, intention, vision etc. RC helicopters for beginners are generally easier to master than the more advanced RC Helis, but quite a few things can go wrong when you do your first indoor training flights.

Even though there are different ways of powering an RC Helicopter, the one most RC newbies will come across is battery power RC Helis. This is because virtually all ready to fly (RTF) helicopters are electric, and they are sold everywhere. They are also inexpensive.
