Lithium Polymer batteries have been the ultimate game changer in RC, and if you're old enough to recall those dreaded NiMh / NiCd days of endless charge times and ultra low run times (shudder), you will count your lucky starts that we are in the age of fast charge, high power electric performance that is not only epic in power, but affordable as well. Thank you, China.

In the age of LiPo batteries, choosing a LiPo battery for your RC needs can be MASSIVELY overwhelming. Seriously. From voltage, mAh, charge ratings, discharge ratings, dimensions, brands and more, it can be a formidable challenge for an average RC enthusiast and a chasm-like expanse for someone new to the RC mix.

But don't worry - we're here to help, and we've laid out the below info to help demystify the LiPo world and make your next LiPo purchase an enjoyable one, versus a frustrating endeavor that ends in pure Luddite rage.

We love helicopters (our "HeliDirect" brand is kind of a giveaway), and when it comes to choosing our favorite machines, it gets tough - quickly. With a mature and sophisticated helicopter market, there is a large array of high quality choices available, and selection varies deep and wide when it comes to finding the next perfect machine.

Even though it was tough, we have selected 5 of our favorite machines that have been chosen from multiple brand names as a way to spread the love and share our thoughts on these wicked 3D machines. Take a peek at our selections, and don't blame us (too much, at least) if you find one of these kits in your shopping cart, because in the end, you'll love us that much more when you take flight with one of these stunning machines.
