So you've decided to look for RC helicopters and not sure which model to choose? Let us and our 10+ years experience in the hobby business help you make the best decision and remember that we carry spare parts for all the remote control helicopters
we sell. Trend Times only sells electric powered rc helicopters as they are quieter, cleaner, safer, and easier to use than gas powered rc helicopters. Plus, you can fly them indoors when you get accomodated to flying the helicopter and do not have to worry about the neighbors complaining of noise. These helicopters are whisper quiet which is especially important if you want to mount a mini camera
on your heli. Our mini cameras transmit in full motion color with sound. Therefore you want your helicopter to be as quiet as possible or the noise on the video will be to great.
We have 2, 3, 4, and 6 channel helicopters. 2 & 3 channel helicopters are more geared for children or the occasional helicopter flyer that just wants to have some fun in the backyard or living room and are listed here
. These remote control helicopters are really fun to fly and will keep you entertained for hours. Check out our full range of toy helicopters
that are great for all ages.4 channel helicopters
are geared for people that want to learn the RC helicopter hobby and demand precise control that mimicks a full scale helicopter. Many of our 4 channel helicopters come with free flight simulator programs which you load onto your computer and connect the included computer cable to the helicopter remote control and your PC. Now you can practice flying RC helicopters on your computer with the actual remote control! These remote control helicopters fly forwards, backwards, left, right, and hover too. Bank right, bank left, and perform all the maneuvers of a real helicopter. You can fly them outside and when are more experienced fly them right inside the house.
6 channel CP (collective pitch) RC helicopters are just like 4 channel helicopters plus they can perform inverted 3D flight maneuvers. That means you can fly these helicopters upside down. CP RC helicopters are a great choice for people that have experience in flying remote control helicopters or for people that have patience and want to learn the helicopter hobby. Here you can find our 6 channel helicopters
Remote Control Helicopter Information:
2, 3, & 4 channel Fixed pitch (FP) helicopters have blades that remain at a fixed angle (you can not alter their pitch). To get lift on these helicopters you must increase the power to the main blades. They are simpler in design, and are easier to fix when damaged.
6 Channel collective pitch (CP) helicopters control lift through the angle of the blades, they have 3 servos instead of 2 (like the fixed pitch models) allowing you to alter blade pitch. This will let you perform more stunts and inverted flight, but they are more suited to an experienced flyer.
