While it can be quite tricky to get the hang of, it does click into place far quicker than you might imagine. Either way, there is one thing guaranteed with an RC helicopter: a huge amount of unmitigatedfun.
Flying an RC helicopter (especially one from the renowned Blade brand) is an experience that no other RC vehicle or craft will give you. You get a very real sense of connecting with the skies, almost like youalways belonged there. Seriously. It's just so incredibly unique, this hobby!
At Align Trex, we offer pilots ofall skill levels the opportunity to experience the sheer thrill of RC helicopters. Whether you're taking your first step in the game or have years of flying under your belt, you too can experience that connection.
We have a perfectly curated range of Blade and E-Flite choppers, ranging from beginner sets to pro-level choppers, and we can't wait to show you what we have, so let’s take a look.
Blade helicopters are easily the most popular choice amongst RC enthusiasts who visit ourstore. These are not just your standard RC helicopters; Blades have been a favourite of ours for decades and are all about precision, durability, and superior performance.
Their designs are engineered for both newcomersand seasoned pilots. Blade helicopters are considered a go-to in the UK and with good reason. They tick all the right boxes forallRC helicopter hobbyists, regardless of level.
At their heart, blade helicopters function based on a series of mechanical and electronic components that work together to achieve stable flight. When you control a blade helicopter, you are essentially communicating with these components, guiding the aircraft to soar, dive, turn, or hover with a distinct smoothness that has become distinctive of the brand.
Who Are Blade Helicopters For?
If you've ever felt the urge to soar like the proverbial eagle with an RC device but have never done so before, then blade helicopters will be a good fit for you. They are perfect, nippy little machines that are also quite easy to handle. But first, you have a decision to make - because the Blade helicopter comes in two distinct model types. You will need to decide which is the best for you personally.
To do that, let’s quickly look at the options:
Ready-to-Fly (RTF) Models
RTF models are perfect for beginners or anyone who wants to take to the skies quickly. As you might have guessed, ‘Ready-to-Fly’ means the helicopter is fully assembled right out of the box. Just charge the battery, and you're all set to take to the skies with your new chopper. It's the easiest way to get into the world of RC helicopters, especially if you see the build process as a hassle.
Bind-N-Fly (BNF) Models
Bind-N-Fly models are for people who enjoy the fun of the build, with more customisation options. While these helicopters come mostly assembled, they don't include a transmitter, allowing pilots to bind the helicopter to their preferred unit. This gives a more personalised flying experience and is great for pilots who already have a preferred transmitter.
Building Your Blade
If you love tinkering, fixing, and building, BNF might be for you. The sense of accomplishment when you see your chopper take off for the first time and command the skies…..There is Nothing like it.Trust us on that!
Assembling the chopper is all part of the fun. Whether you appreciate the immediate flight readiness of RTF models or enjoy building your own blade RC helicopter, the process is rewarding either way, but there is something about building your own that gives that extra bit of satisfaction when you see her soar for the first time.
E-Flite RC Helicopters
Apart from the popular Blade range, we also have a top choice of E-Flite helicopters. Known for its advanced engineering and design lines, E-Flite is another good brand for beginnersand experts. A lovely flying experience is guaranteed with E-Flite choppers, and If you're looking for precision and durability without spending absolute fortunes, they are a great choice.
