Nitrotek Helicopters – Superb Quality for the Best Price!

Nitrotek  is stocking the best radio controlled helicopters from around the world including Esky and Copter-X. Our helicopters are made of  highest quality materials like aluminium alloys, carbon fibre and best quality plastic. We have something to offer to all pilots.
Our rc helicopters are divided into four categories:
  1. 1. Micro RC Helicopters – These little gems are lots of fun and easy to fly. They are crash resistant and can be flown with only a few minutes practice. Our micro radio controllled helicopters are 4 channel, meaning you have full 3D control and unlike the 2-3 channel toy shop ones, you can also bank left and right. As an example I have selected this Z008 Mini 4ch RC Helicopter RTF with Gyro and USB. This palm size 4 channel RC helicopter is amazing! It is able to move in all directions: up-down, forward-backward, left-right, bank right and left, spin on its axes just like the real thing!
Our Price £34.99
  1. 2. Co-axial RC Helicopters – Featuring two sets of main blades which rotate in different directions. These radio controlled helicopters will make ideal starting model for a beginner in this fantastic hobby before moving to single blade model. As a good example I have picked the Esky Co-Comanche 4CH RC Helicopters – 2.4Ghz Version.You can have all the fun and thrills of flying a proper rc helicopter but without the hours of practice. There are many twin blade RC helicopters on the market now but the Comanche is in a league of its own with much better performance and agility.

 

Our Price £89.99

 

  1. 3. Fixed Pitch RC Helicopters – The next step in the RC helicopter field is flying a single blade remote control helicopter. These are more difficult to fly so the training set is recommended. Fixed pitch means the blades are at a locked angle so they are simpler in construction and therefore cheaper and easier to repair if you crash. We have extensive choice to suit all demands, as an example I have selected our best selling model Esky Honey Bee V2 4ch Rc Helicopter – 2.4Ghz Version. The Honey Bee V2 is the latest version of this worldwide famous beginners RC helicopter. If you want to learn how to fly a proper single blade helicopter then this is the best choice. The Esky Honey Bee Series of radio controlled helicopters feature good performance for superior strength, stability, controllable flight and durability.
Our Price £89.99

 

  1. 4. Collective Pitch RC He licopters – It is possible to learn how to fly a radio controlled helicopter on a collective pitch model although not recommended, this type of models is the last logical step on your learning curve. Collective pitch means that when you increase the throttle the blades automatically also angle upwards to give massive amounts of lift. It’s this extra lift that allows these rc helicopters to perform stunts such as flying upside down and doing loops etc. The best model we have on offer is this CopterX 450 Pro Torque Tube RTF 2.4G Rc Helicopter. You will never need to spend money upgrading the 450 Pro as all upgrades come as standard with full CNC aluminum or carbon throughout. A lot of parts on the rotor head are over sized or hardened. 4mm feathering shaft, hardened aluminum alloy washout, oversize main shaft lock collar, one piece swashplate, etc. All these allow high loading for extreme 3D maneuvers.

 

Our price £279.98
