What on earth to do with box of RC helicopters?

I just got a box of RC helicopters and parts. Its has 2 complete helicopters in pieces ( BIG ONES) a ParkFlyer step charger (?) a battery, a ratio, and a whole bunch of crystals and servos and wires and rotors ect. Even a carbon fiber cloth rod that the tail rotar attaches to.  *shrug*

I don't know anything about RC helicopters, except that they are very difficult to even takeoff. What do I do now?


RC helicopters are really cool to fly, but if you don't want to get into that, you could always use the various parts for other projects. (Servos are especially fun to play with.)

You could rig a small camera to it and make use it to spy.

Fly them or sell them.  If they are fairly nice you could make alot of money.

Do you think its possible to use the servos with an arduino?
Yes.
Flying RC helicopters is a great hobby that really helps with your reflexes. I would keep them and learn to fly them. They may be difficult to learn at first, but you will learn. My first helicopter crashed many times, but you have all of those parts that you can use to repair it. Good luck, and have fun!

Make friends with someone who flies rcheli.  There's almost no way to do it alone without any help.  It can be done but it will probably take more than two helicopter you have.
