Also, are they fun to drive, seems like it would get boring because of lack of changing terrain. Sorry if this is not the right place to post, figured its nitro and electric.
Radio controlled helicopters are the S$@t. However they are very technical and require a lot of practice to fly. If you think setup for rc cars is tough, helicopters are three times the work. The "micro" revolution has also taken over planes and helis. There are small electric powered helis that can be flown indoors (by an experienced person). If you are looking into getting a helicopter, check out runryder.com or rcuniverse.com. Good luck.
BTW, planes and helicopters are not at all boring. They can do everything surface vehicles do and they can be flown 3D (in capable hands).
