Flying Events Helicopters

RC helicopters are amazing machines and a blast to fly. Modern technology has evolved enabling anyone to start in this amazing hobby. On board 3-axis gyros make flying helicopters less intimidating than in the past. With the elimination of fly bars, there are less moving parts, thus simplifying the setup. Whether you want to hover around or do acrobatics and 3D, these machines can handle it. The onboard flight system can be set up for the beginner to auto-level the helicopter without the worry of tipping it over.

There are many sizes of RC helicopters for anyone’s flying ability. They can be as small as the palm of your hand to as big as six feet and over 12 pounds. There are many RC helicopter manufacturers that offer helicopters for any budget and any skill level. Most of the modern RC helicopters are offered in nitro and electric with the most popular now becoming electric. All that is needed is a 6-7 channel helicopter radio and some battery packs and you are ready to go. Most of the online RC stores offer combo packages with everything you need.

RC helicopters can do so much more than hover in place or even loop the loops. Aerial acrobatics can happen at the flick of a finger. Highly skilled RC helicopter pilots can make their flying machines do tricks and turns that would be impossible in a full-scale helicopter. It can be a dance of high-flying precision. There’s never been a better time to find a heli that’s just right for you. Thanks to advances in batteries and motors, choices in electric RC helis are at an all-time high.
