RC helicopters are a ton of fun to play with and provide hours of enjoyment.
When you are looking for the best model, you will find a lot of traditional helicopters and quadcopters listed.
The following 7 models are deemed best-sellers by Amazon and are ranked based upon Amazon’s own internal best-selling algorithm.
The best part is that many of these copters are extremely affordable and have numerous reviews that will let you know what to expect when making a purchase.
7. UDI U818A
A quadcopter that comes in at $69 and has had its priced slashed by 86 percent. Rated a 3 and a ½ star by 365 reviewers, the U818A is a great entry copter that comes with a slew of features users will love. Among the great features seen are:
- 6 Axis Gyro
- 4 channel flying for superb stability
- First-person-view camera
This copter has a modular design to allow for easy part replacement, but users should note it is not as durable as more expensive models. With a built-in camera, this is the ideal inexpensive copter for new pilots.
6. The Hubsan X4
The price is not just the major selling point for the H107L. There is a lot to love about this tiny quadcopter. The standout features include:
- 6-axis flight control
- 4 channel flying
- 4 LED night lights
- 4.6×2.3×1.3 inches
This copter is very small, fast and nimble. It does not come with a camera which may upset some users, but it is able to be flown indoors and outdoors as long as the weather permits. You really can’t ask for more as a pilot of this small, yet very agile copter.
5. Syma S107G
Any shopper knows that this is an astronomical amount of reviews for any product, especially a helicopter. The low price of just $17 is also a major selling point for this beginner helicopter.
As far as features are concerned, the 107G provides the following:
- Brushed motor
- Stable flight
- 10 minute flight
- 30 minute charge
- Outdoor flight
There is a very short learning curve for new pilots and this traditional RC helicopter is very durable. You will also love the gyro which allows for the utmost control when flying.
The cons of this model is that outdoor flight can only be done when wind is not present as the weight of the copter allows for it to be easily blown out of control.
4. Syma S109G
The 1,100+ reviews are nearly all positive with a total rating of 4 out of 5 stars seen. For $18 and change, you get an indescribable flying experience with the S109.
As far as features are concerned, this helicopter offers:
- 3.5 channels
- LiPO battery
- Small learning curve
- Flight time of 5 – 6 minutes
- Green color
- Charging cable and USB charging cable
This copter is also small and the ideal choice for new pilots. The controls are easy to learn, and there aren’t really any major complaints from users seen. Users should note that this helicopter is too small to carry a camera.
3. Syma X1
Syma also offers a neat quadcopter that is dubbed a UFO by the maker. This is a neat copter that offers a stylish look and great control.
An average of 4 out of 5 stars is seen and 540+ people have left a positive review for the X1. At a price of $32, this is a bargain for a copter with the following features:
- 2.4GHz signal
- 3 way control
- Indoor/Outdoor flight mode
- 40-meter control distance
- Battery life of 5 – 6 minutes
- Charge time of 40 minutes
The only issue seen with the UFO is that new pilots will have a difficulty flying at first. The instruction manual lacks concise instructions on how to fly this copter, but this should not be an issue. Give it some time and keep trying to learn to fly at a low altitude to avoid any falling damage.
Users will really enjoy that this model comes with an indoor and outdoor mode. This allows for flying in low wind conditions and for the price, the control is excellent.
2. Syma 16.5Cm
The Syma 16.5Cm provides an amazing flying experience. Users will find that this copter is designed like a military copter and comes with 4 spinning blades that allow for great stability while flying.
This model costs just $25 and is backed by 500+ user reviews.
Syma has included:
- Auto stability systems
- 6 – 7 minute flight time
- 20 minute charge
- 150mAh battery
Users ages 8+ will enjoy the flying that the S026G provides. The one note of caution seen when flying this model is that the user will need to be concerned about wind. By no means can this model withstand even light wind with any form of control.
1. WLtoys Large V912
This model has some impressive features, starting with its design:
- A single blade with gyro stability
- LCD screen transmitter
- Landing skids
- 850mAh battery
- Aluminum frame
- Tail rudder for smoother flight
The tail holding ability of this model is exceptional. The engineers have really put a lot of thought into this copter with the tail rudder providing one of the smoothest flights of a single blade RC helicopter I have ever tested. While you do not have the control or balance needed for any video recording, an agile, fun flying experience is still had.
