How To Choose The Best Outdoor RC Helicopter

There are many reasons to buy an outdoor remote control helicopter and these are just a few. As you read the list of great reasons have your gift list handy so you can decide who on your list will enjoy this kind of gift.

Durability -- Be sure to check for durable construction when you are shopping for a flying remote control item. There are many which wouldn't survive a crash but you would like to have one which will survive a few bumps and bruises

Consider the following:

  • Check the power needs of the item. Is it rechargeable, are there extra batteries, how long will the battery last, and how long will it take to recharge it when it is run down. If charging time and play time are not enough for your plans then consider charging up two batteries so you extend the play time.
  • What age is the item considered suited for. Many remote control items will show the youngest age appropriate and it is highly recommended you follow these guidelines for safety as well as skill ability levels.
  • What styles do these come in? When you are buying any kind of electronics you want to check each of the available styles and find one the recipient can relate to. For example the examples shown on this page showcase Gyroscopic, Military, and Spy-Cam (built in or mounted cameras for aerial photography opportunities)
  • If the helicopter is equipped with a camera, check the camera abilities and quality of the photos it will take. If your spy-cam model also uses wi-fli (where you can use your smart phone or other apps to control the vehicle) check to see if the camera will also allow an internet connection so you can see online and perhaps transmit photos over the internet the way a web-cam would work.

Stand alone these would make great afternoon or weekend activities, but, when you start adding the opportunity for community, competition, photos, and the wi-fli options, you begin to see how dynamic something like this can be and how much fun, entertainment, and social time it will provide for anyone who receives it.

Note: When you have a wi-fi capable device you will need to consult the possible additional charges which may incur from the company providing the internet or wireless service. If you have your own wireless equipment you may need to connect your control device (when applicable) or the helicopter's controller to your network (consult your equipment owner's manual and the helicopter's guide to learn more about how to do this).

You can also use this flying camera to hover at various views above your house and use these pictures to help sell your home.
