Radio Controlled Helicopters
Since the first commercially produced helicopter (Schlüter Cobra) as of 2010 there have been hundreds of companies involved in RC helicopters and the total number of helicopter models is in the thousands and climbing every year.
Main focus is currently looking at the 70's and 80's and as I fill in the gaps the focus will move up through the years.
In order to guide the reader though this vast number I have provided search methods accessed by the menu above.
1. Manufacturer Distributor of commercially marketed helicopters in alphabetical order.
2. Country with listing in chronological order regarding date for first commercial production of a RC helicopter.
3. Name of the RC helicopter , separated for scale and trainer
4. Autogyro being in many ways the 'genesis' for helicopters.
5. Own Designs for models either marketed through plans or supplied directly from the individual or model shop.
This website is a 'work in progress' and thus some areas are not as well populated with information as others however,
I would be grateful for any 'copy' you may have that I do not; electronic would be excellent but if not I can scan it myself.
The photos are from many different modelers and they are the owner of the corresponding copyright!
This is NOT a shop and the helicopters are NOT for sale!
