|Deciding the Perfect Radio Controller for Your RC Helicopter|
RC helicopter is a very popular toy for children and adults alike because of its complexity and the stunts it can do in the hands of a very expert helicopter hobbyist. But even if you were able to purchase a very efficient and performance oriented RC helicopter, you have to decide whether to use the stock radio controller that comes with your toy helicopter or opt to buy a more efficient and long ranging radio controller to maximize the performance of your RC helicopter.
RC radios are very important components of any RC toys. In a toy helicopter, the RC radio is the one that transmits the signal which enables the toy to perform while in the air. Its gliding and rolling stunts as well as its hovering ability cannot be performed if the signal from the radio is weak or out of reach. Prices for these radios can vary depending on its features like distance range, height, and power signal. The number of channels included in the radio controller also matter a lot in determining its price range.
RC helicopter radio controller is a very complicated device especially for newbie. It can be quite confusing to see a lot of switches and led lights but once you are able to test it for several times, playing with it can be quite fun and easy. Different switches in the controller corresponds to different actions the RC helicopter can perform including its rotor speed, blade angle for swerving sharply or veering to another direction, and the lifting power of the helicopter. Typical radio controllers for RC helicopters can contain six to nine channels and the more channels it got the more expensive the radio controller becomes.
There are radio controllers for RC helicopters in the market today that can cost up to $1500 and these are for a more serious RC helicopter hobbyist who is willing to spend a lot of money for a more efficient and performance oriented RC helicopter which can match the helicopters primed for RC competitions. But if you just want to experience the joy of flying an RC helicopter, you can always opt using the stock RC controller or buy a less expensive one which can provide an added boost for your toy helicopter.
