Playing remote control helicopters can be a pastime or a hobby for many enthusiasts but these toys can be used for far better applications in the real world. Because they are small in size and some of them have a very good range, these helicopters can be used as a tool for many practical applications which include filming, military requirements, and photography. They can be used for law enforcement purposes such as remote surveillance as well. These tasks can be accomplished by them easily since they can go places and do thing that humans or real life helicopters cannot do.

There are several companies that specialize in manufacturing remote control helicopters for applications in the real world. When people talk about these helicopters the name Dragonfly comes up immediately. Dragonfly is one of the companies that pioneered the world of these toy helicopters with their innovative approaches to take the fun of flying to another level. One tool the police use for their surveillance requirements is the Dragonfly X6 UAV. They use it to capture HD quality aerial pictures and videos. It has become so popular for its ability to be used as a tool when responding to emergency situations and investigations.

Most remote control helicopters that are used for surveillance and photography can be operated manually as well as automatically too. GPS units are fitted on to them enabling it to be in any position or on a route without any user guidance. Maximum stability is gained by the sensors onboard, allowing it to take more accurate pictures and videos. These helicopters can be maneuvered even without much training due to its stability, making it easy for new users.

Most remote control helicopters that are used for these kinds of applications are made to be durable because collisions may occur unexpectedly. That is why these machines come with six motors included for uninterrupted navigation even in the event of a collision. Several other features are added on to them depending on what is required of them. Night vision may be fitted on to them for night time flying which feeds the data direct on to TV monitors or on to goggles that the user wears. Most police departments in the US as well as Canada has made great use of these toys to help them in their services. A Dragonfly was the first helicopter to be used as an aid to investigations of a homicide which happened back in 2002 in Ontario.

What’s more, the newer versions of the helicopter include inbuilt computer processors that are linked to ground control stations which run on operating systems used by most computer users today. It will be something that most hobbyists and enthusiasts find great joy in since most people are familiar with computer OS’s nowadays.

There has been a recent increase in the use of remote control helicopters for commercial applications as well. It is predicted that these machines will open the gates to future jobs that require the assistance of remote surveillance. It may be true because many private investigation firms already resort to using these toys as tools in their arsenal of investigation techniques.
