What is a collective pitch RC helicopter?

Collective Pitch RC Helicopters With collective pitch (CP), the pitch or angle of attack of the main rotor blades changes to control lift while the motor/engine speed and rotor speed stays more or less constant.

How much does a good helicopter cost?

Entry level (not better brand / higher quality / lots of aluminum parts / flybarless) Micro CP Helis are generally under $250 without radio, while FP Helis are usually under $160 with radio and coaxials $120 with radio. Note: This isn’t to say that there aren’t quality helis much cheaper than this upper limit.

What is the best indoor RC helicopter?

Changes to the aircraft flight control system transmit mechanically to the rotor, producing aerodynamic effects on the rotor blades that make the helicopter move in a deliberate way.

Why is a helicopter called a helicopter?

Helicopter rotor chops or cuts the air to produce required the lift and hence the name chopper is used for a helicopter. Incidentally, ‘chopper’ is used for a semiconductor device called ‘ thyristor ‘ because of its ability to chop the sin-osoidal wave at a desired location.
