RC Aircraft - Planes and Helicopters

Loop-the-loops. Barrel rolls. Inverted flight. If these kinds of moves give you thrills then radio controlled flight is what you're looking for. Indoors or outdoors, find an airplane, helicopter, or even out-of-this-world spacecraft that you don't need a pilot's license to fly.

RC UFO Hoax - Have You Ever Faked a UFO Sighting Using a Radi…
Have you ever faked a video or tried to fool a friend into thinking they're seeing a real UFO using a radio controlled blimp, helicopter, or other flying RC? Were they fooled? Have you ever been fooled yourself by a radio controlled toy masquerading as an alien aircraft?

Radio Controlled Flying Saucers and UFOs
Whether or not you believe in the existence of visitors from outer space, UFOs and flying saucers are real. Consider getting one of these RCFOs -- radio controlled flying objects -- for all your skywatching friends.

Flytech Dragonfly
The FlyTech Dragonfly is the most entertaining of all the RCs I have in my collection. You can fly in either beginner or expert mode. The dual settings make the Dragonfly suitable for both novice and more experienced flyers and let you start slow and improve over time. Not only is it easy to fly, the Dragonfly has a unique look. It flaps its wings like a real insect and even sort of sounds like one.

Cool RC Flying Toys
Some of the coolest radio controlled toys for this holiday shopping season are flying machines. From air battles to flying robots, take a peek at some of the newest RC flying toys that you might want to put (or find) under your Christmas tree this year.

Air Hogs Helix RC Helicopter
The Air Hogs Helix from SpinMaster is a toy-grade, electric indoor micro RC helicopter aimed at ages 12 and above. The manufacturer gives it an intermediate skill flight difficulty rating. Does that mean it's hard to control? Yes and no. Hovering is fairly easy but due to sluggish response to the controls and the heavy body design, the Helix can be slightly difficult to maneuver in flight.

Fly Wheels XPV
For those who have had difficulties flying other RC vehicles, the Fly Wheels XPV provides a rewarding flight experience because it really is easy to get up in the air and keep it there. Lightweight but durable, the XPV gives you around 20 minutes of driving across grass, dirt, or pavement and high-flying fun in the air on a single charge.
