    A radio-controlled (RC) helicopter is a fun toy for kids and adults. It can behave just like a real helicopter and also do tricks that an actual helicopter can’t, such as flying upside down. An RC helicopter remote has channels, which refer to controls that move a part of the toy. Beginners should stick to 3 or less channels to avoid frustration. RC helicopters can be made for indoor or outdoor use. Battery life is important because if it runs out too quickly, it will not only ruin your fun but can also cause crashes. These toys should be made of durable materials, since sometimes unexpected hard objects can get in their way before you have time to save them.
