RC Helicopter Shopping Guide

When shopping for an RC Helicopter the choices and quality are quite abundant and can get real confusing when one goes to make a purchase of an RC Heli. There are literally thousands of makes and models out there to choose from. So when making a purchase of a Remote Controlled Helicopter one wants to make sure the purchase they make is not only suitable for them but they also want to make sure they are getting a model suitable to their skill level.

When purchasing an RC Helicopter from a local dealer or hobby shop in your area which is probably the best thing to do for most beginners. Things are made a little easier because you are actually talking to a professional face to face and a decision can be made as to a choice of a RC Heli based on your skill level. Reason being is if you are a beginner you don’t want to go and slap down a bunch of money on a Remote Controlled Helicopter that is more geared for an experienced user. Then after purchasing that brand new expensive toy, you go and take it out for a flight then crash and damage it before the day is even over! Start small, spend small.

Online purchases of a Remote Controlled Helicopter are more for the experienced and seasoned RC aviator. The experienced RC Helicopter aviator knows what they are looking for, they know what their skill level is and most of the time will stay within that realm. They also know which sites to frequent and which sites not to frequent, just as everything else online there are sites where you will go to buy an RC Heli and get burned if one is not careful.

Online RC aviation sites are also handy for replacement parts that need to be ordered from the manufacturer, not to say that a dealer or hobby shop could not do this for you but chances are it would take more time to get what you need or want through them. Therefore ordering online, if you know exactly what you are ordering can be a real time saver when your RC Helicopter is down for repairs.

One can also obtain huge savings purchasing an RC Heli online as opposed to a local dealer or hobby shop. Your local dealers or hobby shops have overhead they have to pay to stay in business so those costs are passed onto you and in turn you pay more for your purchase. Online sites have almost no overhead and therefore they can pass those savings onto you.
