Each year I like to get my husband a fun gift that brings out the kid in him. Last year, he received his first RC helicopter that my parents bought him and he’s loved it ever since. So this year, I decided to get him another that is a bit bigger and can be used both indoors and out. Radio Shack has many RC helicopters to choose from in all different price ranges. I chose the Interactive Toy Concepts® Interceptor RC Helicopter because it can be used both indoors and out and has a control range of 30 ft.
I tested it out myself and found it very easy to fly, but if your looking for more of a challenge there is also a pro-mode that can be set with the turn of a knob on the controller. It has a rotor gyro that makes it nice and stable so you can fly around easily up and down, left and right, forward and backward or even do a 360 without losing control. The controller has 2 joysticks, one for take off and landing and the other is for steering. I really like that it comes with replacement parts if in the event you have a crash and one of the tail rotors or connectors breaks.
It’s lots of fun to fly whether your a pro or amateur like me! Just be sure to stay away from the propellers, they go fast and do hurt if you happen to get hit by them which is why the recommended age is 12 and up. I wouldn’t recommend younger children playing with it for this reason.
- Incredibly easy and stable to fly
- 12” length
- Indoor/outdoor helicopter with 3-ch. control
- Control distance: 30 ft.
- Batteries: 1 X 9V (not included), AC adaptor (included)

If your looking for a RC Helicopter for your child this is great for 12 years and up and is also perfect for the big kid on your list!
The Interactive Toy Concepts® Interceptor RC Helicopter is available at Radio Shack for $59.99.
