Top 10 Remote Control Helicopters

Remote Control Helicopters – fly your own!

A Remote Control helicopter  looks just like the real thing, and flies, well almost, like the real thing!  They follow the same laws of aerodynamics as real, full-size helis. By flying a remote control helicopter, you can experience the thrills of flying without worrying too much about crashing – or where to store it – or expensive flying lessons!

Choosing your RC Helicopter

Before you decide which helicoper to try, you should consider a few points:

Do I want to fly something inexpensive or am I willing to spend time and money repairing it if it crashes?

Do I want to fly helicopters indoors or outdoors?

Do I want to grow into my RC heli?

Once you know the answers to these questions, you are ready to make a decision on which heli to fly.
