Fun for Everyone!

Whether you are looking for a great gift to give to someone of any age, or if you just enjoy having fun in your free time, you should check out remote controlled helicopters. The Syma RC Helicopter is an easy to use model that is so small it can fit in the palm of your hand. Don't be fooled by the helicopter's size though, these little toys can do all sorts of aerial tricks and are completely safe to operate indoors. These helicopters come in a variety of colors and have many available accessories such as replacement blades, rapid chargers, and frame upgrades. Remote controlled helicopters offer endless fun for both kids and adults.

Why should you buy a remote controlled helicopter?

RC helicopters offer fun for people of all ages because they are easily operated and can be flown "right out of the box".

The fact that these remote controlled helicopters are so easy to use is really what makes them so great for such wide variety of people. Kids and adults alike can enjoy flying through the air with their very own RC helicopter without worrying about damaging their chopper and having to pay for costly repairs. The basic RC helicopter models are cheap and easy to fix with readily available spare parts.

Easy to Use

The ease of control is also very appealing to all ages and skill levels. The remote controller is easy to use as it only has three basic controls or "channels" on it.

These 3 basic controls are:

  • Up/Down
  • Forward/Backward
  • Spin Left/Right

Fly with a Friend!

The easy of use and the fact that these remote controlled choppers are fairly cheap, makes them great fun for all ages. You can finally be a helicopter pilot, and the best part is that you can do it from the comfort of your own couch. With this remote helicopter you can have countless hours of fun alone or with friends. Just make sure that they get their own so that you don't have to share! With a friend you can also do cool stuff like try to fly both of your helicopters in formation, or be creative and make up fun challenging games.

Fun Challenges and Games you can Play with a Remote Controlled Helicopter!

One game that I have found especially fun and creative is to hang circles made of paper from the ceiling or light and try to fly the helicopter through them. You can create entire obstacle courses if you like. There really is no limit to the amount of fun you can have with a remote controlled helicopter and a friend.

Another game that you can play alone or with a friend is one that I call "landing pad". The name is pretty self-explanatory. You basically construct a landing pad that can be placed anywhere and be made out of anything. More challenging placements for a landing pad can include; the top of the TV, on a shelf, the top of a can or jar, or on a deck of cards. The harder the challenge you create, the more exciting it is when you successfully land your helicopter.

Why are remote controlled helicopters better than other toys?

RC helicopters are the one of the newest, most popular toys on the market. Why is this you ask? Its because they offer instant fun for everyone! These toys offer endless hours of entertainment and are popular with people of all ages, young and old alike. There is no other toy that offers as much excitement and joy as a remote control helicopter. The "zoom!" sound that the props make and the way that they gingerly take off and land with ease makes the entire remote controlled helicopter experience a great one that you should try out in your home.

Syma RC Helicopters are Great for Everyone!

Positive reviews by myself and countless others who have purchased a Syma S107 RC Helicopter demonstrate that these helicopters offer fun for people of all ages. The helicopters preform well and fly with amazing stabilization. Response of the remote control system is quick and precise which makes the helicopters handle great. Even if you have no experience with remote control helicopters you can basically pick up the controller and start flying. This model of the Syma RC Helicopter is also only around $30, so you can see how much you enjoy it without having to make a large financial commitment to it. These remote control helicopters are amazing in that they fly great and are not expensive. If you have any interest at all in the Syma RC Helicopters you should order one today and start having a blast!

      My son has two Syma copters, I enjoy them more than him. We wore out the internal batteries and I modded a 1S lipoly hookup on it with a bit of soldering...let the fun continue.

      I've ordered Syma before, but the control was not as precise. I mean, you get what you pay for. I would suggest the Wonder Chopper from A little bit pricer, but better in quality. I've had mines for a year and it's still working fine.

      2012 new arrvial syma 800G Palm size Micro Toy Helicopter, with length only 21.5cm. That is the first indoor helicopter with 4 Channels from the Syma factory!

      This one is better than the s107!

      GREAT hub. Voted up and all across the top. My grandson has one of these copters and he, for age 8, is a wizard, that said without bias, and can easily beat an adult with his dexerity and focus. Keep the great hubs coming. Peace.
