Once upon a time RC helicopters were nothing more than flying lumps of polystyrene. They required a fair amount of trimming to stop them constantly spinning and you were limited to the amount of control you had. However despite their flaws, they were still a great way to learn how to fly.
So why a trip down memory lane we hear you ask? Well we understand that kids are particularly good at ‘pester power’ and despite our best efforts to persuade them otherwise, we know the floodgates will open if the answer is ‘no’! That’s why we decided to stock the Easy Fly – 2 Channel helicopter.
2 Channel - In our opinion this is the best way to learn how to fly. There is no backwards direction, and the helicopter will automatically fly forwards at a comfortable pace. That means you just need to control the height and direction.
Gyro – The holy grail of RC helicopters. The addition of this piece of tech has kept trimming to an absolute minimum. Even the most advanced helicopters now have built in gyro’s as standard.
Phasing LEDS’s – OK so this has nothing to do with how easy it is to fly, but it does look cool in the dark! The Easy Fly’s body features phasing LEDs that change from red to green to blue.
Plastic bits – With it being a ‘learning’ helicopter crashes are going to be inevitable. Although not indestructible, the Easy Fly helicopter has a robust plastic body, no tail rotor to break and easy to replace blades.
Like most RC helicopters of this size, charging is done via the remote control and takes around 30 mins. Once fully charged you should have 8-10mins flight time to practice your flying skills.
