Different types of Radio
What is the difference between a toy, model, or helicopter kit?
Basically, a toy helicopter is the type that you can buy in a department
store. These are the HumbleBee, Sky Pioneer, and Air Hogs.
Pro: cheap, simple
Con: limited flying capability
Model helicopters usually refer to static models. These are made of
plastic or die cast metal, and are for display purpose only. Unlike radio
controlled helicopters, model helicopters do not fly.
Radio Controlled Helicopter Kits
Helicopter kits, or more specifically, radio controlled helicopters,
are those that actually fly and can be controlled via a radio control
transmitter. A good example of a radio control helicopter kit is the electric powered
micro Piccolo helicopter, which is also commonly misspelled as Picollo.
Pro: indoor flight capability, realism, fun
Con: difficult to fly, can be expensive

get radio controlled Apache helicopters.
