  • Main rotor rc helicopter control comes in two forms, cyclic and collective. Cyclic controls directional movement of the heli through the air (left, right, back and forth) whilst collective controls altitude (up, down).

    The full sized Hoverbike will harness a motorcycle engine and controls. It could ultimately be as large as a small car. The current mini-prototype is operated in a way that’s similar to a hobbyist quadcopter. The smaller version uses electric motors and a standard RC helicopter controller can be used to direct it.

  • Main rotor rc helicopter control comes in two forms, cyclic and collective. Cyclic controls directional movement of the heli through the air (left, right, back and forth) whilst collective controls altitude (up, down).

    The primary method of making a real helicopter change direction while flying is through full pitch control of the main rotor blades, either independently or collectively.
    But in the rc world, in recent years, there has been a huge influx of that do not have this complete independent pitch control - these are known as fixed pitch (FP) rc helicopters and have proven to be very popular with beginners.
    Emulating the real helicopters are the more complex collective pitch (CP) models which, although harder to learn on, are more agile and smoother to fly because the rc helicopter controls found on them are truer to life.

Flight Controllers - Tarot RC Heli

Learning about rc helicopter controls is a fundamental part of the rc heli hobby, but beginners sometimes have a hard time understanding the different pitch controls (cyclic vs. collective) and how everything interacts. Hopefully this page will sort that out for you!
