New & Used Quadcopters For Sale

  • Listed: April 21, 2018 11:32 am


To summarize my Quadcopter blog below: Quadcopters are weapons.  The Quadcopters for sale offered on this site, and every other site, are rc helicopters with cameras, not real Quadcopters.  It seems like the word “Quadcopter” is turning out to be one of the best marketing gimmicks of all times! RC mini helicopters, tiny rc helicopters and palm size rc helicopters are usually too small to carry cameras or video cameras. But all other kinds of remote control helicopters, regardless if they are indoor rc helicopters or outdoor remote controlled helicopters usually have the ability to carry a camera or a video camera.  Once an rc helicopter for sale has a camera attached to it, it becomes a “Quadcopter“. Some of these “Quadcopters” are just rc toys for sale, and some are a more sophisticated hobby model flying rc helicopter for sale with a better overall quality, but do not confuse rc helicopters for sale with real Quadcopters for sale.  Every “Quadcopter for sale” on this page and on the market is just an rc helicopter for sale, real Quadcopters are not for sale on consumer websites!

Originally the only kind of Quadcopters were military Quadcopters. But these days Quadcopters have become very popular, and include multiple kinds and categories of Quadcopters, like: rc Quadcopters, toy Quadcopters, hobby Quadcopters, commercial Quadcopters and professional Quadcopters, and they vary in quality and equipment from Quadcopters that are just toys, to real aircraft quality. An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a Quadcopter and referred to as a Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard. If a Quadcopter does not have a camera or video capabilities it is not considered to be a real Quadcopter. Its flight is controlled either autonomously by onboard computers or by the remote control of a pilot on the ground or in another vehicle. The typical launch and recovery method of an unmanned aircraft (Quadcopter) is by the function of an automatic system or an external operator on the ground. Historically, Quadcopters were simple remotely piloted aircraft, but autonomous control is increasingly being employed. Quadcopters are usually deployed for military and special operation applications, but also used in a small but growing number of civil applications, such as search and rescue, policing and firefighting, and nonmilitary security work, such as surveillance of pipelines or bridges. Quadcopters are often preferred for missions that are too “dull, dirty or dangerous” for manned aircraft.  The toy and hobby industries went through an “earthquake” in 2005 when the first rc helicopters came on the market.  Once the action moved up into the air, it was obvious that rc helicopters were the most exciting and most fun kind of toys, and the mini rc helicopters became hot and popular toys.  From that moment onward, rc helicopters continued to EVOLVE in quality, precision and equipment.  Moving from a remote control helicopter to a Quadcopter was a natural step.  Take a radio controlled helicopter, put a camera on it, and now it is a…Quadcopter.  The line between rc helicopters and Quadcopters is a thin line.  Any rc helicopter with a camera or a video is in fact a QuadcopterQuadcopters appeal to the mass market as rc toys, and will no doubt continue to be the hottest toys forever, as nothing beats a flying helicopter with a video camera.  What makes the Quadcopters so unique is the fact they come in so many shapes and sizes, and vary in quality from rc toys all the way to aircraft quality….real airplanes!  And besides being very exciting and fun to fly toys, Quadcopters have so many useful practices.  Quadcopters are and will be a very hot selling product forever!

I was in the toy manufacturing business for about 25 years.  At a certain point it became obvious that the best selling category of toys is the rc toys, also known as remote control toys or radio control toys. Kids love rc cars, particularly rc stunt cars, but also rc boats, rc trucks, and of course rc airplanes.  Flying an rc airplane is a lot more exciting than playing on the ground with an rc toy, but, it is still somewhat boring, similar to flying a kite that just sits there.  When the rc helicopters came out in 2005, they came as a tsunami….The factories in China were not able to produce enough to supply the demand: mini rc helicopters, tiny rc helicopters, palm size rc helicopters, indoor rc helicopters and outdoor rc helicopters….it just went on and on. It was crystal clear that remote control helicopters and radio controlled helicopters are the next big thing…for a very long time.  But who could imagine that the craze of flying rc toys, would turn into the “Quadcopter craze”?  All the toy factories in China need to do is attach a camera or a video camera to an rc helicopter, and this helicopter now becomes a Quadcopter.  The number of uses for Quadcopters is unimaginable and unlimited. First, just like the rc helicopters, the Quadcopters come in multiple sizes and shapes.  Large Quadcopters, mini Quadcopters, outdoor Quadcopters, indoor Quadcopters, expensive Quadcopters, cheap Quadcopters, it just goes on and on.  Now I tell my dog to fetch the newspaper, it is just a question of time before indoor tiny Quadcopters will be able to fetch and move things from one place to another inside a house.  Just think of all the aerial photography opportunities the Quadcopters offer! Land surveys, agriculture use, search and rescue, spying and tracking movements, delivery of goods, and last but not least, just fun….As time goes by, the Quadcopters will be put to use more and more for commercial and professional use, but the largest sector using Quadcopters will always be the consumer market, Quadcopters are the ultimate toys!
