How do you think the future heli's and radio's are going to look? What functions or specs will be added?

beyond the year 3000

the controller will become V-gloves.
you'll controll the heli by moving your hands and legs.

Just don't leave the gloves on when you go to bed with the missus or you could cut the head off the cat or something!

I smile, cause I've no idea what's going on.

beyond the year 2007

but seriously though, i think the CSM/Flybarless system could be one of the next big things. I'm seriously considering converting one of my raptors just to have a play around with it.

I have recently read an article, where a company is developing a fluid which can change its viscosity through the application of different voltages .

And someone has mentioned that it's feasible to apply this into the Rotor-head for variable dampening.

I.E increasing the voltage stiffens the liquid, and therefore the dampening rate can be changed during flight.

sounds like a good idea to me.

colsy fluid in a head spinning at 2-3000 rpm would create diffenet kinds of CG issue. especially if the fluid was turned 'solid' in some parts

no kidding you know that this weekend we found out that 'gas' r/c helicopter are illegal to fly in mecklenburg county nc.
so luckily when we were being told we all had electrics out. but the smart guy remark was oh the other helis aren't gas they are nitro. & we all know thats not gas right??!!

only you have the power to make no difference!

You will not need a seperate TX...just your cell phone.

RC heli's by 2030 will probally be banned by homeland security in the USA...we will always welcome you to come fly here in Canada with us .

Pilotless helis - just show up at the field, type in the sequence of manuvers in your laptop portal and press enter. The heli ascends and proceeds to carryout the pre-defined set of manuvers. You just set back and have a drink and enjoy your expertly programmed sequence.
Have fun sharing sequences with your buddy pilots and see who can collect the best ones from the top pilots...

Any sign of helis using anything bigger than a 90 (nitro) engine.

I remember coming across something like that 30 years ago. At the time it was for use in car clutch systems.
As for the future of helis, electronics will gradually replace mechanicals as well as new technologies to replace current servo functionality.

This is already in use, in shock absorbers. Different voltages control the viscocity of the oil inside the shock to make it stiffer/softer. I had a set of these made by Koni.

realistically?

my guess, judging by the advancements that have really changed the hobby: more affordable machines, better electronics, lipos, internet, and simulators...I think we will see more improvements in the next decade, but not any really radical new hardware.

I think social problems will affect the hobby more than technology:

theres a lot of people in the world and not as much space to fly anymore. development near existing fields or finding open spaces will be a big part of the future.

I also think the next big shift will likely come on the price front, from battery technology.
