Traditionally, most pilots agree that RC helicopters are the single most challenging RC models to build and operate. They’re mechanically complex. They require you to master two distinctly different skills, forward flight and hovering. And to pilot them successfully, your FULL attention is required.
However, flying RC helis is becoming easier than ever. Recently, manufacturers such as Blade have made some impressive advances to give more hobbyists a better shot at getting a heli in the air and keeping it there. Pilots new and old alike will find that Blade helis are ultra-durable and easier to fly than an airplane.

Skill Level 1 "trainer" helicopters are perfect for beginners and first-time. Skill Level 2 helicopters are a great choice for intermediate pilots who already have some experience with previous aircraft. Skill Level 3 helicopters are suitable for more experienced pilots who already have experience with similar class models.
There’s never been a better time to find a heli that’s just right for you. Thanks to advances in batteries and motors, choices in electric RC helis are at an all-time high. RC helicopters are available in Kit and BNF (Bind-N-Fly) forms, almost all RTF (Ready-to-Fly) helis are electrics. RTFs are a huge convenience, especially for new pilots: it’s not only assembled, but almost all required items are included!

RC helicopters can do so much more than hover in place or even loop the loops. It’s aerial acrobatics at the flick of a finger. Highly skilled RC helicopter pilots can make their flying machines do tricks and turns that would be impossible in a full-scale helicopter. It can be a dance of high-flying precision.
You might be awestruck by its potential if you’ve never piloted a helicopter. Maybe you are one of these incredibly skilled pilots looking to add to your collection of professional-grade helicopters. Perhaps, you just wanted to get started by taking up a Ready-to-Fly helicopter for the first time. No matter your starting point, there is an unbelievable range of hobby-grade helicopters designed for first-time pilots all the way to seasoned veterans and likely the one that’s perfect for you.
Our remote-control lineup features helicopters for novices all the way to powerful helicopters designed by experts for experts.
For new pilots, there’s a path to build your skills from small indoor helicopters to premier performance machines featuring the latest technology, incredible flying performance, and strong carbon fiber frames.
The easiest way to get started flying RC helicopters is by picking up a Ready-to-Fly (RTF) model and heading out to a flying field or an open room. Straight out of the box, RTF helicopters are complete and fully equipped, including a radio, motor, charger, and batteries.
If you already own a radio transmitter, there’s no quicker, easier, and more successful way to get you in the air than with Bind-N-Fly® (BNF®) RC helicopters. Each BNF RC helicopter can be flight-ready in the time it takes to charge a battery. All a transmitter owner needs to do is choose the BNF RC helicopter they want to fly, bind its receiver to their transmitter and hit the skies.
Kit hobby helicopters feature very little prefabrication, and you'll do most or all of the building. Open the box, and you’ll find a well-packaged assortment of parts plus a detailed instruction book to guide you step-by-step through the assembly.
Tower Hobbies has a full range of radio control transmitters and receivers to fit every budget and need. From high-end Spektrum™ Smart radios with telemetry information to beginner models perfect for new enthusiasts just starting out, Tower Hobbies has you covered. Plus, all accessories needed, including servos, blades, motors, engines, and electronic speed controls, are readily available.
Blade, one of the leading brands, offers top-of-the-line beginner helicopters to hobby-grade aerobatic machines. Of course, with Blade, pilots receive Spektrum technology, including the proprietary SAFE® (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology, which allows pilots to learn at their own pace with multiple protected areas, including the exclusive Panic mode.
