You can also have lots of fun with an electric rc helicopter. These are powered by small electric motors and rechargeable battery packs. There are scale models for beginners as well as experienced modelers.

If you are looking for realism, the best choice would be to buy an rc gas helicopter powered by small  (.30, .50, .60 size) fuel burning engines. The sound and smell of nitro fuel in the air makes these models so realistic.

For indoor flight, the best would be to buy a mini rc helicopter, also referred to as a micro rc helicopter. These micro scale models are the size of your hand and can hover indoors!
