If you are fond of flying, you’ll surely enjoy controlling a toy RC helicopter. Thanks to the technologies of the 21st century, it’s possible to pilot a fully functional flying vehicle that can hover and soar. We’ve chosen the best RC helicopters for you!
WLtoys V912 4CH
If you think you have already learned how to control the electric RC helicopter indoors and want to try it out outdoors, this model will suit you best. This RC helicopter is relatively big (weighs 300 g), so it can fly even if it’s a bit windy (wind grade up to 4-5), though we don’t recommend you to fly it too high. If you want to buy this RC heli for your child, make sure to teach him how to control it. The flying vehicle is more than 20 inches long, so you might damage some furniture in your house if you fly it at home.
Haktoys HAK635C 17″
This is a large Haktoys RC helicopter that you can fly indoors and outdoors. Since the unit weights more than 580 g, it’s heavy enough to resist wind up to 5 MPH. This model is 30 inches long, so flying it in your house is quite dangerous. We recommend you flying outdoors. Keep in mind that it’s a serious toy which must be used by people aged 15 and older. Otherwise, the adult supervision is required. Buying this model for your 8-year-old son makes sense only if you teach him fly this heli.
This is one of the cheap remote control helicopters that is suitable for novices and kids. This model, however, is quite durable and even it falls down, it doesn’t mean the vehicle breaks apart. Still, if your kid is under 15, you should fly this electric RC heli with him. The model can be used indoors or outdoors, but it’s very lightweight (just 27 g) and controlling it in the wind might be too difficult. Best of all, choose the good weather where the wind is nearly absent, or fly the heli indoors.
It’s one of the best-selling mini Syma RC helicopters that is very popular with novice pilots for its stunning agility and affordable price. This flying vehicle is designed for indoor use, because it’s too small and lightweight (just 34 g). No need to say, this Syma model is a fantastic choice for children. If you want to get your kid interested in flying – this electric RC heli is perfect. However, age range is 14+, so if your kid is younger, always be nearby when he’s flying this vehicle.
G.T. Model QS8006
This is the largest model on our shortlist of the best RC helicopters and that’s why it’s for outdoor use only. The weight of 2.8 kg and the length of nearly 53 inches make this unit far too big for flying indoors, so never try it, unless it’s a huge hangar. No need to say, this electric RC helicopter resists the wind quite well (up to grade 3-4). However, it’s not a toy for kids – this model is suited for people over 15.
