Great RC Helicopters for Beginnersby Motion RC
Radio-Controlled (RC) Helicopters are a great way to get your feet wet in the wonderful world of model aviation. RC Helicopters are more than just toys for big boys and girls - they can be tools for teaching, great introductions into engineering and technology, as well as vehicles for traveling and meeting like-minded aviation enthusiasts like yourself at local RC flying clubs and RC events. Choosing the right RC helicopter can be tricky though. There are so many options on the market that it can be difficult to find the best one for you. Whether you’re looking to create an experience that will thrill your kids or just want something that flies well out of the box, here are some of our favorite RC Helicopters for beginners available at Motion RC!
RotorScale C127 100 Size Gyro Stabilized Helicopter with WiFi Camera - RTF
The RotorScale C127 includes everything in the box to begin flying, except four AA batteries for the included Radio Transmitter. Sized small enough to fly indoors or outdoors in light winds, the C127 is a great helicopter for beginners thanks to its gyro stabilization and small size. Adding additional “cool factor”, it also emulates the smallest RC helicopter in the world, the US military’s PD100 Black Hornet. Providing ten to fifteen minutes of flight time, and an included 720p WiFi camera to record your flights, there is plenty of fun to be had.
RotorScale F03 160 Size Gyro Stabilized Helicopter - RTF
The RotorScale F03 is the perfect choice for beginner pilots looking for an easy to fly, gyro-stabilized helicopter in a RTF (“Ready To Fly”) package. Thanks to its larger size, the F03 can be flown more easily outdoors in windier conditions than smaller helicopters. Its on-board gyro system and barometric pressure sensor allows for hands-off hovering and altitude hold to better help you learn how to properly orient and control an RC helicopter. Constructed from a blend of semi-rigid materials, including plastic and carbon fiber, the RotorScale F03 resists damage from hard landings and tip-overs. An extra set of rotor blades, tail blade and main gear are also included in the box, just in case.
RotorScale EC135 100 Size Gyro Stablized Helicopter - RTF
The RotorScale EC135 includes everything you need to start flying, except for four (4) AA batteries for the radio transmitter. Thanks to the equipped 6-axis gyro and barometer, the heli is easy to fly, even in more confined environments. Its LED battery monitor makes it easy to check the flight battery’s charge with the simple press of a button. If you’re looking for a helicopter that looks like a real helicopter, but is still easy to fly, the RotorScale EC135 is just the ticket for you!
RotorScale AF162 SkyHound 120 Size Gyro Stabilized Helicopter with WiFi Camera - RTF
The RotorScale AF162 SkyHound includes everything you need to get flying, except the four (4) AA batteries required for the radio transmitter.

Simply press a button to activate a brief auto-pilot mode that will either takeoff or land the helicopter for you! The AF162 also includes an FPV camera, and an accessory to mount most mobile phones to the radio. Using the free Android app, you can watch the FPV camera’s feed on your compatible Android phone screen while you fly! The AF162 packs a lot of value in a convenient “everyday flyer” package, that makes it the perfect choice for beginners.

Perfect for a large room or back yard use in calm conditions, the RotorScale C129 Firefox is an easy to fly gyro-stabilized helicopter that includes everything you need to get it flying, except the four (4) AA batteries for the radio transmitter. One of the best features for beginners with the C129 Firefox is the helicopter’s ability to stop and hold a hover, including the altitude, if you release the controls.
