By Javed Khan Subscribe to RSS | February 24th 2012 | Views:

RC Helicopter is fun to play with. There is no age limit or any restrictions to have fun with those. But you should choose the correct item according to your requirement. Your skill level, budget and the type should be considered before you buy. Otherwise you may not get the real feeling of these great toys. And remember to read all the instructions carefully in the user manual in order to have safe and reliable flight. By that way you will not be disappointed with what you have and it will save you a lot of money as well.

Lack of knowledge regarding RC Helicopter is a major disadvantage for you as a person who wishes to purchase and fly them. First of all you must identify your skill level. If you are a beginner, you can always start with a low cost basic toy. Later on you can go for high end more advance toys. I will later discuss about these categories in detail. If you are an expert in this area, there is not much to tell you. You know the hobby and you know what to choose and how to choose.

When we look at any RC Helicopter which is vailable in the market, it can be categorized in to several groups such as Micro Coaxial, Electric, Gas, Scale, Nitro, Jet Turbine, etc. That categorization is done according to the size, fuel source and basic operating method of the toy. Usually Gas, Scale, Nitro and Jet Turbine types are far more expensive than the Electric type and intended for skilled users.

Let’s discuss the way of choosing a toy for you. If you are a beginner, you can start with a micro coaxial one. It is electrically driven and available in different sizes and models. The performance and controlling ability of them is given in number of channels. Two channels mean you can control the throttle and rudder with the remote control. Nose of the toy is pre weighted and it continues to move forward as soon as you lift it from the ground. In three channel type, you can control the forward and backward movement as well. When we consider the four channel type, it has all the controlling features. That means you can move it up, down, forward, reverse, move sideways and spin left and right using your remote control. So if you are a beginner and looking for a high performance toy, go for coaxial four channel one.

All of the Gas, Scale, Nitro and Jet Turbine type RC Helicopter is basically for skilled users. It is not recommend for beginners. If you really jump in to those kinds of toys, you better start with a good flight simulator. You may wonder the reason of using a flight simulator instead of using a real toy to practice. The reason is this. Above mentioned types of toys are not easy to operate as coaxial toys. And also they are far more expensive. So you better practice to handle those toys in a simulator and then start to fly real toys. It will save both of your time and money. And eventually you will be able to have a lot of fun out of it.

There are lots of reliable sources in the internet where you can learn about RC Helicopter. Before you purchase, it is always recommend doing a good search on your required type of toy. And you can compare your intended toy with other toys in the similar category. By doing so, you can go for the best option.

When you fly your toy, you should consider about your safety as well as the safety of the surrounding people as well. Always follow the safety instructions of your toys user manual. If you are not confident about your flying, it is better to go to an empty space where no people, trees and buildings are around. It will lead you to have a proper safer flying experience and you can try new actions of your toy.

Hope you find the best toy for your purpose and enjoy flying it safely. Start from the beginning and learn step by step without rushing through. You will end up as an expert RC pilot. Have fun!
