RC Turbine Helicopter
RC helicopters are becoming popular among outdoor as well as indoor hobbyists. Adults as
well as children enjoy their leisure time by flying RC helicopters with their fingertips. There are many types of
RC helicopters available in the toys store. We can categorize these radio-controlled helicopters on a number of
bases. For example, people usually search for RC helicopters by specifying its engine or rotor type. Some other
people prefer searching by specifying number of desired channels.
RC turbine helicopters are just like other RC gas helicopters. The size of these
helicopters is also same as that of popular large sized RC helicopters. Many people imagine that the size of a
turbine helicopter would be larger due to its turbine technology. However, this is not the case. The rotor
diameter of typical RC turbine helicopters is around 100 inches. Similarly, the weight of a turbine RC
helicopter does not exceed 30 pounds unless installed with heavier and stronger elements.
RC turbine helicopters can be bought as well as be built by you. It is quiet easy
to build a RC turbine heli. DIY kits can be found in online stores and auction websites. Building a turbine heli
is just like building any other nitro or gas heli. In fact, the engine structure of the turbine RC heli is so
similar to that of nitro and gas helis, they can be easily fitted into a gas helicopter chassis.
You should not purchase RC turbine helicopter without knowing your needs. Toy
helis are the cheapest and safest. However, they might not give you precision like a four or six channel turbine
RC helicopter. So, do a good research on the Internet to find out the best RC heli that also fulfills your hobby
needs. Flying might not be very easy in the beginning. Therefore, spend some time learning the controls and
mechanics of the RC helicopters!
