We’ve been on a pretty serious note the last couple pages, but in reality, what it comes down to is that flying a Remote Control Helicopter is fun. Having the power over a mechanical aircraft in flight is a great feeling. What is really great is seeing young people who may not otherwise be interested in RC Helicopter flying or may not know how fun it is getting into the hobby through an unconventional model. The Guinness World Record holder for the smallest remote control helicopter ever built is called the Picoo Z and is manufactured by a Hong Kong based company. The Picoo Z is 6.5 inches long and weights 10 grams. The beauty of the Picoo Z is not only that it is the world’s smallest functioning Mini Helicopter but that it’s affordability and popularity has brought so many more people into the remote controlled Mini Helicopter hobby.
Mini Helicopters can be a lot of fun for those just getting into remote controlled helicopters or even for the professional who wants to challenge himself using a much lighter, very different handling Mini Helicopter. There is no right or wrong way to get into remote Mini Helicopters, but no matter what size helicopter you are working with make sure to do you research, read your manual and check out various Mini Helicopter sites and forums like this one, to find out as much as you can about your Mini Heli to make sure that it lasts for a long time.
The Mini Helicopter hobby is not cheap. You must have patience to work with and adjust your Mini Heli to make sure that when you take it up in the air it won’t come crashing down, putting you out the money you spent on it. The price and time you put into your Mini Helicopter is why you should begin with an inexpensive remote control helicopter, but also one that allows for tweaking so you can get a feel for how to properly adjust your Mini Helicopter. The last thing you want to do is to test out your skills at flight control on an expensive Mini Helicopter that will likely come crashing (or at least, roughly landing) on the ground your first couple tries.
A micro helicopter is essentially a small rc helicopter. These micro rc helicopter models are just as maneuverable as regular sized rc models but the micro heli is just a bit less expensive and smaller.
But don’t get discouraged if your first few attempts at Mini Helicopter flight don’t go as smoothly as planned. The beauty of Mini Helicopter flying is that there is a wealth of knowledge available to you and many Mini Helicopter hobbyist stores for you to shop at and ask questions of the employees. Not only that, but like riding a bike, once you get the hang of your unique Mini Helicopter’s controls, you won’t forget it. But like every bike, or car for that matter, each distinct type has their own style of handling which takes some getting used to. But don’t ever give up but learn from your mistakes and you’ll be a Mini Helicopter flyer in no time.
