RC helicopters come in many shapes and sizes. Most RC helicopters in our range are designed for indoor use. Some may also be outside, but only if there is no wind.
The tricky part RC helicopters are the controls. Although a considerable part of the RC helicopter is meant to our catalog for novice pilots, yet we have started this radio models do not include in our children's corner. Reason is that children still want to see quick results and thus already immediately expect to be able to fly an RC helicopter with all its consequences. Can your child the patience to learn to fly an RC helicopter, look especially at the beginner models (level is shown in the detailed description of the helicopter).
Characteristic of RC helicopters is the difference in control system, this is dependent on the number of channels. RC helicopters in our range are controlled via two or four channel transmitters. Below is a list of the channels, and the differences in the control options.
2-channel controller: up and down and to rotate the shaft.
3-Channel Control: Up & Down, to rotate the shaft forward and reverse, left & right and hover.
4-Channel control: Up & Down, to rotate the shaft forward and backward, left and right, side left and right and hover.
The band to which the RC is controlled helicopter is of importance for the range of the helicopter, and also some bands are also more sensitive to already in your present home radiation (such as from a microwave oven). The models with infrared (IR) control are relatively inexpensive, but have a small range, but these are generally excellent beginners models, where the control of the RC helicopter is relatively simple. The biggest range and less susceptible to interference are the GHz models, some of these models are also suitable for outdoor use, in terms of operating these models quickly go from a more experienced pilot.
