We’ve spent a long time looking and finally we’ve found what we were looking for! Behold; the V911 is here and it’s ready to take you inside or outside for some ‘4 channel flight’ action. Forgive the drama but we’re quite excited as this little craft will take your piloting to the next level!
If you’re looking for something more advanced than the standard Syma 107 or U4 helicopter then look no further. Although trickier to fly than its more basic cousins, it’s much more rewarding as it requires much finer control to fly. It’s perhaps not the helicopter to start with but if you’ve flown these craft before and you’re looking for an upgrade then the V911 is what you need.
This rc helicopter is the perfect introduction to 4 channel control (which means that you can now sidestep with ease, as well as all the directions you are used to). The upgrade to 4 channel flight means that not only can you control the pitch, yaw and height of the helicopter but you can also bank as well.
Most 4 channel, outdoor helicopters need you to have a brain the size of Russia in order to fly them (and a wallet to match) but not so with this fella. It’s well priced for its technical ability and the fact it can fly outdoors on a calm day is a bonus. The 2.4GHz controller means that you shouldn’t have interference issues like infra-red control and you can fly as many as you like in the air at the same time, unlike traditional radio remotes (you know, the ones with the telescopic aerials).
There’s some clever design features that we simply must tell you about before you decide though – not only is this fixed pitch a really simple design to repair but the elastic design makes it pretty durable although trees and walls are still best avoided ;) The left landing skid is also slightly higher than the right, making it easier to take off with a much more stable lift-off.
If you’ve never flown an RC Helicopter before then this little chopper might not be the best place to start, but if you’re looking to advance to an higher level, then you’ve come to the right place!
