Here are some of the best remote control helicopters for sale I could find online. I dig through all the crap so you don’t have to!
This is our list of the top 5 best deals we could find on RC Helicopters ranging from the cheaper indoor models to more expensive outdoor models. Keep in mind that these are in no particular order and all of these choppers would make a great gift and are guaranteed to provide entertainment!
While it is one of the cheapest/best choppers out there, the Syma s107 will allow almost anyone to be up and flying within a half hour of opening the box.
It’s Incredibly easy to fly and this is thanks in part to the built in gyroscope that gives the chopper a great deal of stability compared to choppers without this feature.
Our experience has been that the choppers generally have a good level of workmanship and are not prone to some of the battery and charging issues that plagued some other models in this price range.

Yep, another Syma. For now these guys will remain in my top 5 until something better comes along!
This chopper is just too much fun to play with and it looks awesome with the dual rotors and larger size. It’s a bit bulkier than the smaller Syma’s and definitely doesn’t have the handling of the S107 but that would be true in real life as well!
It’s a perfect companion to go along with the other two Syma military style choppers and for under $100 you can have all three! The obvious benefit to this besides owning 3 really cool RC Helicopters is that you can be flying on constantly while the other 2 are charging. This means no more waiting around for the choppers to charge!

Ok… Starting to notice a trend yet? Yes, I do recommend the Syma’s a lot but thats only because they seem to have the best reputation around and I like them personally.
If you find a chopper that consistently shows good build quality and doesn’t always arrive with problems with the batteries etc… then I say stick with it! I’ve been burned by too many different choppers arriving non-functional out of the box.
This is a new offering from Syma and it has the Black Hawk down to a tee (as much as possible, purists could argue that the tail rotor isn’t top mounted on a real black hawk!).
The best thing about this chopper is the 3 channel remote design and of course the built in gyro. Aside from the price there isn’t a huge difference between this and the Apache featured above, and you could probably make your decision based on style as opposed to actual features.

I love this chopper and everything about it! For the price it’s one of the most reliable outdoor/indoor choppers available and the build quality is surprisingly well done!
This is probably the best step if you’re looking to move between one of the cheaper indoor electric choppers and a more expensive outdoor model because it still gives you the functionality of an indoor chopper and can withstand the inevitable crashes while you learn to fly it!
The controls are certainly a little more sluggish than the other smaller indoor choppers but you’ll get used to this very quickly and it is a lot of fun to fly!

Another strictly indoor chopper but for the price you just can’t beat it! Under $20 right now at various online retailers and in-stock is a very rare occurrence in choppers at this price range and this one (for the time being) is ready to go!
Double rotors with a built in gyroscope is the main reason that I’m recommending this one. I wouldn’t recommend anything these days without a built in gyro because they just don’t work that well for indoor flying (in my opinion anyways). Some folks will claim that the gyro doesn’t matter or that you just need to improve your skills, which is probably true!
But for me, I just like to have fun flying these things around the house and this chopper will do that. Also, the military styling’s just look cool! And you know that matters!
