Radio-controlled helicopters (also called RC choppers) are model aircraft which are distinct from RC airplanes because of the differences in construction, aerodynamics, and flight training. Several basic designs of RC helicopters exist, of which some are more maneuverable than others. The more maneuverable designs are often harder to fly, but benefit from greater aerobatic capabilities.The RC chopper being covered in this workshop is a complete design with AVR based RF controlled base station and a mosfet based onboard driver chip which is specially designed for choppers.
