I like this one Clickymick said:I like the look of this one what sort of things should I look out for if I do decide to get somethingColSonders said:If you wanna give them a try I would strongly recommend the WLToys V929mick said:awww ive always wanted a RC helicopter.My latest hobby is RC helicopters - my wife got me a little toy one for my birthday in January and since then i've had 3 other heli's that have either failed or just been a bit crap and i've sold on, but currently have a Blade 120SR and a Blade MQx and am really enjoying learning to fly them.
It's basically a cheapy replica of the Blade MQX that i've got. Almost all of the parts are interchangable between the two, but the V929 has different electronic on board with much cheaper gyros and the facility to do a pre-programmed flip!
It's not a helicopter, but is far more forgiving yet still a very capable little machine, it can handle wind that would keep helicopters several hundered pounds more expensive on the ground and has few moving parts and is therefore dead easy to maintain/replace parts for without any complicated setup of new bits. Also comparatively indestructible compared to any helicopter I've seen.
That would give you a real taste of whether you'd get on with the hobby or not.
Note that the above quadcopter isn't comparable to the 3.5 channel heli's you'll see in gadget shops, those can't fly in ANY wind, lots of them can't even fly outdoors due to using infa-red transmitters and they don't have the depth of control or stability of this little quad. That quad is the best RC flying device you'll get for under £100.
