    Default Where to buy helicopter controlled?

    Where to buy helicopter (or others flying things) controlled in Singapore? Thinking to have it as another hobby. Battery one is preferred.

    Thanks!

    U know where is hong lim market ?

    There is an old shopping complex (forgot the name liao) besides it and a Standard Chartered Bank (southbridge rd branch) on the ground floor. It is between the Great Eastern building and Hong Lim market. There are some shops that are specialized in remote helicopter.

    If u are those on budget types, SIM LIM SQUARE gnd floor are selling those battery operated types at $69.90. Just saw one ah beng demonstrating the chopper to an angmoh yday.

    "U see har, the plane crashed spoilt oso no heart pain. Just $69 dollars only. Cheap cheap" as quoted.

    I think just learning to hover the heli alone can take up to 1 month (if you are a fast learner).

    Maybe you can pop by HWZ under classified forums. Seen some there occassionally.

    Depends on what u use it for and how serious are you.

    If u're a beginner or just play play, go metro, there's a tiny helicop for $39.90. x-rotationals are very stable. pay not more for $70 for a cheap 3 channel. Able to up/down, left/right, forward/backward.

    If you want something more advance, get at least a 4 channel, not more than $220. Will do the job.

    If you gungho type... got alot more parts/set-up to configure from $500 and above.
    Typically, get at least a good controllor, 6 channels and above.

    You can spend up to $10,000 in modding a turbine heli/place.

    A bit of OT... This site has some of the smallest RC helicopters I've ever seen, too bad they're not for sale.
