This is the first mention of Expert micro helicopters on this website. And for good reason. You see, so far there hasn’t been a micro helicopter that meets my definition of the expert skill level.

By: admin | In: Intermediate | On: December 3, 2010

These three micro helicopters are arguably the most popular indoor RC helicopters of any class.

Micro Helicopters for Intermediate Pilots

By: admin | In: Intermediate | On: November 26, 2010

The intermediate level of Micro Helicopters is for people who have gotten the hang of basic flying skills such as orientation, and are now looking for something a little more challenging. Intermediate helicopters are not recommended for first time pilots. This is because without confidence in basic flying skills, it will be very difficult to […]
