For the beginning, Radio Control Helicopters have different sizes. Its aspect depends a lot on the size of its scale. The price will also rise along with its size. These devices are all created to look and act like real helicopters.
The tail rotor and the main blade of the RC Quadcopter Aircrafts are some other important elements to be considered. Some high quality blades in the structure will determine a higher performance of the helicopter. It will fly better and it will have a higher resistance to wind if it has a better design and blades. You will also be able to control better a helicopter with better blades instead of one with lower quality ones.
Pod and boom models are better for making stunts. These types of helicopters are lighter and more resistant to crashes. You will need to analyze the models adapted for stunts and the ones created for flying. The advantage of stunt RC Helicopters is the lower price than the scale RC Helicopters.
You also need to get informed on the material the helicopters are made of. You can find Radio Control Helicopters made of fiber glass, carbon filter, polycarbonate or polystyrene. Smaller helicopters are made of polystyrene and polycarbonate; cold temperature or wind can affect them normally. Fiberglass is more resistant but it weighs more as well. The strongest and lightest material is carbon fiber; but you need to consider the higher price too.
And the last aspect you should think about would be the energy source used. You can find gas, nitro or electric fueled Radio Controlled Helicopter models. A lot of power is available if using nitro or gas helicopters, but the disadvantage is the noise they produce and the need to refill the fuel quite often. Besides, they always have to be kept in dry cool places.
For these reasons, a better choice would be an electric helicopter. They don’t disturb with their noise while flying and batteries are rechargeable. This makes it an economical investment and no money on fuel.
These are the main aspects you should think about when buying a Mini RC Remote Helicopter. If you take some time to analyze features such as: power source, material, type of helicopter, scale or blades, you will surely be able to make the right decision. The price can vary somewhere between $80 and $1000; smaller models can even cost less.
