Once upon a time not so long ago, flying remote control aircraft is considered too difficult and expensive for all but the most ardent enthusiast. Remote control helicopters were more demanding and expensive, nor is it an appropriate hobby for non-adults. However, in recent years, with the introduction of toys and mini helicopters and airplanes, everything has changed, especially when it comes to Helis. Today, kids remote control is, excuse the phrase, really taken off.
Toy Helis and planes are stable and have less control than a hobby grade models and easier to fly for kids and beginners. They will not go so fast and to perform all the maneuvers that are bigger, more complex models can be, but they are inexpensive and make great starter kids remote control airplanes. Many toy helicopters costing less than $ 50.00, with a toy RC planes going about it, or not much more.
Micro or mini-copters and planes fall somewhere between toys and hobby-grade. They cost more, a little less easy to fly, and will perform and manage better than toys. Micros are cheaper and less difficult to master than a hobby class, and some are performed, as well as lower-class gas-powered aircraft. Some toys can be flown by children as young as 6 or 7, and the minis are more suitable for 8 and up.
Most of the toys and MICROS are ready to fly, which means that they are fully assembled and come with everything except the batteries. They are very quiet, non-polluting, and require no maintenance by building airplanes do. Tons of fun and very affordable, mini rc helicopters and airplanes are a great way to scratch your kids remote control itching.
