Looking For Remote Control Helicopter Reviews?
I’m an RC Helicopter nut, have been for 3 years now since I got one as a gift from my girlfriend. I think that they’re an excellent pass time and I thought I would share my experiences with RC helicopters on this blog.
Keep in mind that not all RC Helicopters are created equal! There are some out there that work very well and can provide a great deal of entertainment while others that will break down 15 minutes after they are out of the box and provide nothing but frustration!
If you’re new to remote control helicopters than I would highly recommend starting out with a mini RC model like the Syma S107 to get used to flying. This will provide you with a good first experience and won’t break the bank!

My goal with this site is to be able to provide some quality reviews on new choppers as they come out. That means that yes, I will at some point be offering some affiliate links so you can purchase helicopters through me, but the idea is that I will reinvest any profit I make into buying more RC choppers to review so that I can provide all of you with better information!
What should you look for in a remote control helicopter?
Well the answer to this question will obviously depend on a few different factors but lets assume that you`re interested in an electric/indoor model for now.
This is obviously the most important thing. How well does the unit fly. I cover this in all my reviews simply because if the copter fly’s like junk, then it’s not worth having! This includes things like gyroscopes and overall stability as well as maneuverability and sensitivity. This also includes the remote control, the best flying chopper in the world will still suck if it doesn’t have a good remote to go with it!
Charge Time vs Fly Time
Probably the second most important thing after flyability (I think I made that word up!) is charge time vs. flying time. Ideally you want a chopper that doesn’t take too long to charge up and provides you with at least half of the charge time in flying time. Obviously results are going to vary a little in this case but thats a general rule.
Maybe this should be number one in the list! As with everything in life some rc helicopters are built a lot better than others. You need to be aware which ones will take a beating (especially if you’re new to the hobby) and which ones won’t!
I’ll discuss which manufacturers and suppliers offer the best deals on spare parts and which choppers are the easiest to repair. You will break something, it’s inevitable! I’ll let you know which choppers can be repaired the easiest and where you can find those parts.
Design and Other Features
Last but not least, you wanna fly something that looks cool! But be aware, some of the cooler looking choppers on the market are actually not that great when it comes to usability so I’ll fill you in on this as well. Plus, other features like guns, slings etc… All the cool stuff!
