A radio controlled electric helicopter can provide you with hours of fun. Unlike an airplane, you are able to hover in one spot, or move from point to point at will.
Firefly and BladeRunner Helicopters:
Both the Firefly and the BladeRunner helicopter use counter-rotating blades to achieve incredibly stable flight. These helicopters are for indoor use and are perfect for beginners. On the transmitter, the first control stick gives you fully proportional throttle control allowing you to move up and down with precision. The second control stick operates the steering, left and right. The helicopter achieves this by changing the speed of the counter-rotating main blades, creating more torque in one direction, causing the helicopter to spin.
The Draganflyer is a professional, hobby grade, radio controlled, electric helicopter, suitable for flying outdoors. Unlike a standard helicopter, the Draganflyer has four rotors, one at each corner. With four channels used to control movement, you have fully proportional control over throttle, yaw, pitch, and roll.
The Draganflyer’s power source, a three cell lithium polymer (li-poly) battery, gives you 12-15 minute flight times. The Draganflyer is available in five different models, the Draganflyer V Ti, V Ti Pro, SAVS, TSU, and X-Pro. The Draganflyer V Ti is available with or without a wireless video camera system. The Draganflyer V Ti Pro adds frame bracing, a computerized transmitter, and a 460 line high-resolution wireless video camera system. The Draganflyer SAVS (Stabilized Aerial Video System) is the top of the line for professional video use. Equipped with our highest resolution 480 line wireless video camera system, anti-vibration camera mount, hard shell transport case, and Diversity video receiver in its own base station case. The remaining two models fall into the industrial category. The Draganflyer TSU (Tactical Surveillance Unit) is customized exclusively for military, government, and law enforcement use. The Draganflyer X-Pro is a larger version, about twice the size of the other four. It is intended for applications that require a larger payload.
Which Draganflyer Helicopter Is Best For Me?:
If you are starting out, and would like to focus on flying rather than video, the Draganflyer V Ti would be a good choice. It is also available with a wireless video camera system perfect for taking amateur video. If you would like to get into higher quality video, the Draganflyer V Ti Pro with its 460 line 1/3″ CCD video camera is for you. For the highest video quality and all the extras, the SAVS (Stabilized Aerial Video System) is your best choice.
