The RCHA offers a new fresh, and creative
approach to serving the rc helicopter community in the UK.

We set the Guinness World Record in 2010 with the ‘Most Helicopter Flown in one instance’. We believe we are the first dedicated helicopter association to do this we aim to do it again and again. This years fly in will be bigger and better.


A crash in any circumstances is painfully frustrating, but when a crash leads to injury or damage then things can get a little complicated. RCHA did provide its members with the opportunity to recieve insurance cover for such circumstances. In 2011 we have had to remove this element - but we will be looking at returning this back into our member packs in the future at somepoint along with the lanyard, decals, car sticks and membercard that goto members already.

For further information on the club package and more please follow the link below.

had its explosion and is now the norm"

So far Align launched the G3, Beast-X was released, the pioneers V-Bar have either launched or updated there systems, Curtis is about to launch his system more and more heli's now come either with or without flybar. Therefore the RCHA has decided to lanuch a site dedicated to flybarless.

"A structured Reviewing

System with Pilots at its centre"

RCHA will be reviewing products differently, we are looking for UK volunteers to be our reviewing group. They will be required to fully review and give and NCAP style rating on products from suitability, durability, value for money and overall position. Once complete the items will be auctioned.

"Safe, Monitored and Secure for all to use"

As well as the method used by RCHA to sell its recently reviewed items, the auction site can easily act as a more traditional classifeds function with a simple "Buy Now" button. With more flexibility and with a very robust rating system as well as secure you are safe in the knowledge that as much as possible is being done to make sure members can trade as safe as possbile.

Safety Alerts

Its imperative that flyers are aware of any safety issues concerning the equipment they might be using. In some cases this will effect electronics which can cover all forms of flight, as a recent example see how Nitro fuel could effect your Spektrum receiver if your not careful.
