A variety of RC helicopters are on the market, and how your helicopter maneuvers depends on the model you fly. Most RC helicopters aren’t manufactured for commercial use, but some companies use them for inspections or remote observations. They may be used in aerial photography or by film production companies. Remotely operated helicopters have become more popular in the last few years. Technology is always advancing to make the helicopters faster and more maneuverable. Though some may argue that RC helicopters are dangerous, this isn’t true at all as long as you use caution when you operate one.
A lot of hobbyists start with a 4CH remote helicopter, then choose to upgrade to a 6CH. The only difference between the two models is that the additional channels on a 6CH helicopter are controlled by an automatic mechanism in the helicopter and not the operator. On the 6-channel helicopter, the speed of the blades picks up when you push the throttle as it does in the 4-channel. However, the 6CH provides more lift due to the angle of the blades.
One of the most important safety rules is to turn on your controller before you operate your helicopter. When you’re shutting down, make sure you shut down the helicopter first, then turn off the controller. Always make sure you have plenty of room to operate your helicopter and allow enough distance between you and other people.
It’s difficult to maneuver your RC device on a windy day. Always use caution and if you’re not sure whether to fly, you should probably wait until another day. Always remember that RC devices aren’t toys and should only be flown by responsible owners. A good tip is to join an online forum or discussion group for RC helicopters. You can learn a lot of useful information from experienced operators.
Most RC helicopters are used by hobbyists for leisure or competition flying. 3D flying is a form of advanced techniques of flying in competitions and should only be attempted by expert flyers. Flying 6CH helicopters in competition or for fun is a fascinating hobby and can be as safe as any other hobby. It’s important to make sure your helicopter is in good working order, and always follow safety rules to ensure that you and others nearby are safe.
