Simple ,the one that is right for you!
Deciding on the best
RC Helicopter that is right for you or someone else, can at first be a daunting task.
Most advertisements are very confusing with information and technical terms that only an experienced specilal pilot/modeler would understand. We will go over these terms and features, and explain their operation and limitations so you know you are making the right choice for your needs or someone else's if you are thinking of purchasing a rc helicopter as a gift.
Yes - watching someones eyes light up when they open the box to their new bird is worth every penny, but can be a real let down if it's a low quality product or is not suited to their individual needs.
By the way, if you are specifically & quickly looking for the best one for a child or newbie beginner, my suggestion here may be helpful to you.
My goal here is to give you accurate information so you can make your own recommendations on what the best kind is for your own/others needs and help you avoid much of the hype and junk on the market that is "all show and no go"! I will however mention several ones that I feel are among the better birds/brands that I would purchase myself (and in most cases, have purchased, flown, and written some reviews on).
The following info is for those of you who seriously want to get into the hobby and want to understand more about choosing the best kind, taking everything into account from size and type to features to know about and ones to avoid. Let's get started...
Any advertisement or person that is telling you "this brand of heli is better than the others" or is stating something like "this is the best one ever for the beginner"; or offers up some obscure non fact based "top 10 model" (such as the esky -lama -v4 )list is not being truthful or sincere. There are simply way too many variables and compromises at play in this hobby and statements or lists like those are unrealistic at best. It's really simple, a good hobby shop or supplier that knows their product and wants to sincerely help you get into the hobby in a positive and successful way should initially have just as many questions for you as you do for them. In short, they should first identify your needs & expectations - not theirs.
I think,by now,you already have got an general idea of how to choose the best kind of toy for yourself or for others.Have fun with the fabulous,magical toy!
