What is the best helicopter for you

Written by Administrator on 28th Nov, 2014.


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!

Written by Administrator on 12th Nov, 2014.

Nine eagles RC Helicopter is the latest 2.4GHz-channels co-axial helicopters. It hae excellentcontrol function and advanced balanced operative system with easy operation and fly stability. It isthe best choice for the pilot to learn how to fly. When you are ready for your first flight, you willwant to select a relative open indoor area that is free of people and obstructions. And while it is possible for experienced pilots to fly the NE R/C 210A Helicopter in relatively small indoor areaswith great success due to its size and controllability, we strongly recommend an area with at least10-feet of floor space and no less than 8-foot ceilings when making your first few flights. Once you have properly trimmed your helicopter and become familiar with its handing and capabilities,you will be able to fly in other smaller, less open areas.
The beginner should concentrate their effects on vertical control and the direction control. First,you should control the throttle stick. After the helicopter takes off, slowly push the stick up or down. And control the stick to keep the tail facing you. Do not fly the lower 0.3 meters high abovethe ground, because the airflow under the rotating blades may cause the ground effect and affectnormal flying and operation.
Nine Eagles 210A Helicopter is the min-leisure indoor helicopters which research anddeveloped by Nine Eagles. It has the min-volume, light-weight that can fly in small range. The pilot can absolutely enjoy this leisure sport. Place the helicopter in the middle of the room, youshould always stand approximately 2m (6ft) from the helicopter and behind the tail. Make sure thehelicopter and transmitter have been set up and adjusted in accordance with this handbook. Switchthe transmitter on, connect the battery, and check once more that the servos are operating correctly before proceeding.
Highlights:
1.Micro type, very suitable for beginners to fly indoor.
2.Coaxial twin screw structure, steady in flight and flexible in action.
3.Many coating hoods, providing you more choices.
4.Five in one controller, owning five functions of 2.4GHZ receiver, electron speedregulator,locking type gyro,mix controller and server.
5.High-effect hollow cup main motor and tail motor, making the flight quieter and more stable.
6.Nine Eagle’s patent of the easily plug batteries, making your operating more convenient.

The ESKY Lama V5 Co-Comanche was designed by TWF as a 4 channelsradio controlled electric helicopter with co-axial, twin rotor blades system.It is easy to fly for the beginner, which possesses the characteristics of high sensitivity and full control of the real helicopter. The Co-Comanchewas designed with separating canopy and fuselage connecting by acarbon fiber rod,which makes it practical and beautiful. The landing skidconsists of three rolling wheels, which can slide automatically whiletaking off and landing. The tail duct rotor blade can turn automaticallyduring flight, which brings you into a real flight state and brings more funfor your flight. Finally, 2.4 Gigahertz equipment use less current tooperate than standard frequency systems. This results in longer flight timeand longer life of your transmitter and receiver batteries!
New 2.4G Spread Spectrum technology allows the transmitter andreceiver to be 'locked-on' to the same frequency ensuring much improvedreliability and peace of mind when flying. Second, 2.4Gigahertz systemsoffers quicker, more responsive control, when compared to a standardfrequency system. Third, Operating at 2.4 Gigahertz also puts the radiocontrol out of the frequency range of any 'noise' caused by the other electronic components on your Esky RC Helicopter - such as the motor,speed controller and any metal to metal noise - eliminating interferenceand glitching that can affect traditional frequency system. Fourth, another main characteristic of 2.4 Gigahertz equipment from a RC model club point of view is that no frequency control is needed. Eliminating the needto check everyone else's channel numbers, prior to flying. No moreworries about turning up at a club with the wrong crystal in your Tx.
