Are you looking for a toy that engages the mind and is quite challenging? Then I think I have the perfect toy, an RC helicopter is perfect for you. It takes quite a bit of practice to get the helicopter to hover controllably. Like any toy if you want to learn to use it properly your best bet is to read through the instructions. Many people buy items day in day out and never read the instructions. Only when things go wrong do they look for the instruction leaflet only to realise they did something wrong which they wouldn’t have if they read the manual first. So learn from others mistakes and read the manual first. It will only take a few moments and could save you heart ache later on.
If you’re new to controlling rc helicopters you want to start basic. You need to learn how to control your helicopter with simple manoeuvres. Just learning to fly up a foot and then land again with control should be your first training course. Use a few books to make a couple of landing areas in your living room. Use these to practice take off and landing. As you gain confidence you can move the landing areas further apart. Hovering the helicopter and being in control of this hovering will give you a better understanding about various movements and functionality of your R.C Helicopter.
To choose the best helicopter suitable to your demands. Buying the most expensive one might not be the best for you. The first thing you need to think about is where you want to be flying it. Do you want it for indoors or do you want it for outdoors. The size will count here. Larger ones are made more adapt to outside conditions. Then you need to think about spares and repairs. There will bound to be a time when you have a major crash and break parts. Now most helicopters will come with a couple of extra blades but what is you break a balance bar or something that isn’t included as a spare. This is where a bit of research before you buy will help. Many online stores do offer spare parts but it’s worth checking your not buying a model which is not being continued as getting spare parts could be a problem.
Another thing to think about when choosing a RC helicopter is how experienced are you? If you’re new to this hobby you would be well advised to spend as little as possible on your first helicopter. As you can experience and become more of an expert flyer, then and only then is the time to spend more money and buy a more top range type of helicopter.
