Most novices purchase an ,, because most RTF models use an electric power source. Reasons many buyers favor electric RC helicopters is that the cost of both fuel and parts is much lower than on . For expert flyers who only use their RC helicopters outside, nitro gasoline engines are sometimes preferred for their greater power. Both engine types can provide equally good aerobatic maneuvers for 3D-capable RC helicopters and the popularity of quieter electric engines continues to grow each year, especially because they can be used indoors. Some expert hobbyists still prefer nitro gas models because they are larger and come closer to a noisy, real helicopter experience.
The Syma S107G RC Helicopter is a ready-to-fly, 3-channel helicopter that provides everything a beginning remote control aviation enthusiast will need. The S107G features metal construction that allows it to withstand multiple crashes – an important consideration since this heli is for indoor use only. The S107G also features a built-in gyro for greater control that is another benefit for beginners. The heli has a flight range of approximately 30 feet.
It is commonplace for most RC helicopters to feature six-directional control. This means that the helicopter can move up, down, forward, backward, left, and right. Hovering ability is another feature that is standard on most RC helicopters. Stability when flying varies widely from basic RC helicopter models to the larger, assembly-required crafts. Many expert hobbyists prefer less stable RC helicopters that require more user interaction to control their balance. A basic feature that benefits new flyers is a gyro flight balancer, which makes flight more stable and well-balanced. Stability helps the helicopter avoid many crashes and accidents, and saves you from buying more parts.
The most common materials used for RC helicopters' main frames and tall boom sections are aluminum, plastic, fiberglass, and carbon fiber. Expert users recommend different materials for these main components, based on the size and type of RC helicopter you plan to buy.
