Product Reviews RC Helicopter Review

My husband and our children love to bond together while playing with their remote controlled toys. We recently discovered a wonderful online source for remote controlled toys including helicopters, cars, boats, flying saucers, airplanes, trucks and even tanks.

We surprised our son, Adam on his 8th birthday with a U13 Electric RC Helicopter 2.4 GHZ GYRO 3CH Infrared Metal Alloy RTF. This “awesome” (as described by my son) RC Helicopter is a very nice quality and been lots of fun. My husband and son really like all of the extra features and functions including the working LED body lights and turbo button. The remote control is very user friendly (with adult supervision for children under 14 as this is the recommended age for use) and it has rise and descend, turn right and left and forward function. It even has a LCD display on the remote control. RC Helicopter Review

I appreciate that it is durably designed with a higher strength metal alloy frame so it is not quite as fragile as other brands we have purchased in the past. It also has an extra set of rotors as a spare just in case it is needed. The gyroscopic feature helps it to fly with a smoother control and the coaxial rotor design feature has a balancing bar for the maximum stability when flying. RC Helicopter Review

We also like the larger size with the helicopter being 12” long, 6” high and a 10” wingspan which is quite impressive when in flight. This RC helicopter has a rechargeable wall battery and charger and the remote control itself uses 4 AA batteries. It didn’t take very long at all to charge it up initially and my son was ready for flight…..he absolutely LOVES this helicopter and declared it one of his favorite presents ever.

If you are looking for a great gift idea for a RC enthusiast then I highly recommend the RC toys from! You are invited to visit the website to browse the vast selection of RC toys. I am very impressed that you can save a bundle off regular retail prices. For example, this U13 Electric RC Helicopter has a SRP of $89.99 but is currently available for purchase at for only $44.95 which is an excellent value in our experience.
