2016 Best Kids’ RC Helicopters and Quadcopters

 
Flying RC HelicopterOne unique “feature” regarding the top 10 R/C helicopters for this year is the variety of ages of people who love them — both young and old “heli” fans tend to enjoy the vast majority, or perhaps even all of them.

What’s here:  On this page are the ten best remote control helicopters and quadcopters for kids and teens (many also loved by adult “kids”) through the spring and summer of 2016. These are the picks that are not only popular, but also have at least an above-average overall rating.

For shoppers:  For each of the RC helicopters on this page, multiple shopping resources are recommended to buy it online. Each recommendation is known for its lower price as well as its ease of shopping and trusted on-site security.

1. Air Hogs Axis 400X RC Helicopter

Ages: 8 and up

Rising right to the top of the top 10 RC helicopters for kids in 2016 – Air Hogs Axis 400X.

I am all about Air Hogs because their choppers seem to be easier to control. Of course, that opinion is coming from an RC amateur. The Axis 400x is a serious high-performance high-flier with internal stabilization and a 4 channel, 8 directional control pad. The construction is crash-resistant for beginners.

Ages: 8 and up

The HAK303 Mini from Haktoys makes it as the next up among the best R/C helicopters for kids.

Stable and solid, the HAK303 has lots of great features, like a built-in scope, crash-resistant frame, 50-feet skyward flight range, and 6-8 minutes of flight time on a 30 minute charge. This one is recommended for indoor flights, but it can be used outdoors for short periods of time too.

The Sky Viper Nano Drone also manages a strong position among the best RC helicopters for kids this year.

This miniature chopper is small enough to base lift-off from the palm of your hand. Agile, impact-resistant, and simple to control. This little trickster performs barrel rolls mid-flight with the one-touch tap of a stunt button.

7. Sky Viper Streaming Drone

Ages: 12 and up

The Sky Viper Streaming Drone is another popular pick among remote control kids’ helicopters for 2016.

8. SkyRover Phoenix 4-Channel RC Helicopter

Ages: 14 and up

One from SkyRover makes it to the top R/C kids’ helicopters this year with the Phoenix.

The Phoenix is an instant favorite of mine because it travels faster and lasts a bit longer on a charge than the other choppers. While all of the copters have their good points, this one boasts power for long-range flights.
