RC helicopters have always been popular with kids, but these days many adults are getting involved as well. This is probably due to the fact that these helicopters are becoming more advanced and sophisticated. Many of today’s RC helicopters come equipped with a variety of options, and cameras seem to be a hot trend. The following are a few tips you can use in order to find the best helicopter for you.
If you’re not looking to break the bank, you can still find sophisticated helicopters that are fairly cheap. Since larger helicopters are typically more expensive you should consider something a little smaller. Try finding a quadcopter for around $50-$60. Most helicopters in this price range are fairly advanced and durable. Because it’s a lot less expensive you can’t expect to get too many options. The helicopter camera on one of these devices will work great, but will likely provide only low-quality images.
Again, RC toys have gotten extremely advanced over the years. If you have the extra money, you may want to consider a quadcopter that allows you to stream live video as you operate it. These types of quadcopters are great for sporting events, checking out new scenery, or simply a little backyard fun. Depending on the options available you may be able to choose between living streaming and recording whenever you’d like. Be prepared because these toys can cost well over $100.
There are a number of professional helicopters out there that are mainly for the adults. These helicopters are equipped with built-in cameras, wifi, and the option for expanded memory. Just like the previous helicopters you can also record and live stream with these devices. What attracts most people to them is the fact that some allow you to control the device with your smartphone or tablet. Because of the extra features these advanced helicopters will set you back between $300 and $400.
These are just a few of the options you have available. Remember there are a variety of RC helicopters out there and each one has it’s own combination of features. The less features a device has the more affordable it’ll likely be. Likewise, the more features and options a helicopter has the more it’s going to cost you.
