Electric Indoor RC Helicopter for Boys

Perhaps you're looking for an electric indoor RC helicopter as your son's gift, or a guy interested in buying one for yourself. Either way, I give you a warning: these toys are very addicting.

RC Toys and Boys

No matter what type of vehicle (or creature) it is, any boy enjoys playing with remote controlled toys. It may be because when driving them around, it's the feeling that their in charge that makes them so easily attached to these toys. Or perhaps it is because guys are naturally attracted to pretty much any type of machine.

Regardless what it is that makes boys and, for this matter, men also so fascinated by RCs, it is a fact without question that they love playing with them and may be asking for one as a christmas or birthday gift. If so, you may be wondering what type of RC toy to buy.

RC Helicopters

Perhaps one of the most thrilling RC toys of all time are remote controlled helicopters. They are very fun to fly around and will captivate a kid's imagination. Most RC helicopters are meant to be flown outside and are powered by gas. This makes it very difficult to fly during bad weather and makes it a potentially harmful hobby for youngsters.

Indoor Helicopters

To make it a little bit easier for beginners to begin this great and fun hobby, there has been created small RC helicopters made for indoor flying. These helicopters are perfect for young boys because it can be flown inside, instead of outside where the wind, rain, and snow can prevent people from flying. It is also a much safer RC helicopter because you only have to charge it's battery up and it's ready to fly.

When you get one, you won't have to put anything together because RC helicopters for indoors usually comes fully assembled, ready to fly right out of the box. All that must be done to prepare for flight is give it's battery a fresh charge. The battery can usually charge not only by AC power outlet but also directly off the RC controller.

Two Types of RC Helicopters

There are two types of indoor remote controlled helicopters, co-axial helicopters and micro helicopters. Co-axial helicopters have two top propellers which are on top of one another but spin in opposite directions. This creates a gyroscopic effect that makes for a much more balanced flight. Micro helicopters, on the other hand, are not quite as easy to fly but they do have a much more realistic flight pattern. When turning, this type of remote controlled indoor helicopter actually banks into the turn, and co-axial don't do this.

Which type did I buy?

I personally have a Syma S107G helicopter. This RC heli is co-axial, and like I said before, this type is specifically designed to be an easy-to-fly helicopter. I was very pleased with my S107G and would very likely recommend it to anyone who is just beginning to fly electric indoor RC helicopters.
