RC Helicopters Expand Range of Remote Control Helicopters


San Fransisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/02/2012 -- Helicopters are an amazing bit of design innovation; their history goes all the way back to DaVinci, who attempted to design and build an early prototype helicopter but could never get the mechanics to work. The first helicopter was first mastered by Igor Sikorsky, a Russian, in 1939, and begun full scale production in 1942.

The products are available to every scale of ability, size and price range, allowing new enthusiasts to try their hands at piloting the craft while offering new and exciting challenges to experienced, expert RC pilots.

A spokesman was eager to pull in new advocates of the hobby, saying, “A lot of the trickiness in the flight mechanics of a helicopter is the rotation of the blades creating torque-force that constantly tries to pull the vehicle around in a circle with it. The rear rotor offsets this, but for beginners, we have a two-rotor, contra-rotating helicopter that eliminates the torque factor and makes the control interfaces much easier to use.”

The rc helicopter selection available on the site range in price and come in a wide variety of styles, from the fantastical and futuristic to the historically accurate scale model.
