Some are free. Some aren't. Designed for safely learning how to control and fly radio controlled helicopters, they're fun to play as helicopter games too. 14 in all (don't miss page 2

Although you'll find this helicopter game posted on many blogs, I'm going to the source. Developed by David McCandless and Leandro Barrreto, you use your mouse button (click and hold to go up, release to go down) to fly over or under obstacles. Very tricky. While it might not teach you how to fly real or RC helicopters, it can help you develop quick mouse button reflexes.

This is the iPhone game that sold me on the idea of playing RC games on a cell phone. If you're not sure that controlling an RC helicopter in a semi-realistic manner is possible on the iPHone, try out the free version of RC Heli.

With this app you can race an RC helicopter through a 3-story house. I love this game. It has very realistic controls and a realistic environment too (including an fan that will blow you around if you get too close). I'm getting the new Gold version which adds more environments and a 4 channel helicopter. I'll be reviewing the paid versions (standard and gold) soon.

It's a good concept with lots of options but it is not as responsive as it could be. HeliFlyer wants to be an RC helicopter flight sim for the iPhone and it does offer plenty of flying modes with increasing levels of difficulty and realism. However, it just doesn't quite measure up to RC Heli for iPhone in my opinion.
For one stop fun, you'll find several helicopter games here along with instructions on how to play each one. There's Bump Copter 2, Heli Attack 3, Sky Chopper and more. Several of these helicopter games feature shooting objects or other helicopters -- while also flying your own chopper.
Go on an Army mission with Alpha Bravo Charlie. Or choose another Helicopter Game from the sidebar including Heli Attack 2 or 3, Crazy Chopper, or Heli Racer -- which is a simply racing game with many courses and skill levels.

The Air Hogs Havoc Heli Laser Battle from Spin Master comes with two Havoc micro helicopters for double the fun. These special RC helicopters are equipped with infrared receivers and transmitters and firing buttons on the controller so that two people can not only fly together, they can try to shoot each other out of the air.
