In the world of radio-controlled aircraft, few things can match the enjoyment that is provided by large RC helicopters. Regardless of your age or level of experience, operating these devices can be a fun way to spend your free time. As the popularity of these helicopters rises; the quality of the available options increases with it. If you are looking to buy one, this article will help you find the best RC helicopter on the market today.
My personal favorite thing about electric helicopters is the noise they produce. Watch/listen to that Goblin 700 video and you'll know exactly what I mean.The quiet electric motor really allows you to hear the rotor blades interacting with the air and "barking". That sound is hard to beat! It's why most of us want to get into larger RC helicopters as you don't get that wonderful noise with small ones. Tail rotor noise is also more noticeable. Not dealing with messy nitro goo, engine starting & tuning hassles, running hassles, excessive vibrations, starters and glow drivers, or shipping costs associated with nitro fuel are all other electric helicopter benefits.
True, LiPo battery shipping is starting to become a hassle & costly as well, but it's still much easier and less costly than shipping nitro fuel. Electric RC helicopters are simply more convenient and vastly more reliable in most cases.The other neat thing with electric helicopters is the motor and gearing spinning sound somewhat similar to a turbine powered large RC helicopters making them increasingly popular in scale RC helicopter applications providing a more realistic sound.
