check out kits
I am not really sure how to answer your question...I understand what you want to know but to name all the components does seem a bit pointless...you need a RTF heli or a kit...either way you should then get everything you need ...the description of the heli kit should actually tell you what else is required in order to assemble and fly. It is likely you will need a gyro and servos ...plus choose a engine and muffler...as well you require starting equiptment like a glo igniter ..wand and starter...there's fuel to purchase and glow plugs too....hope this is what you were wanting to know..if not ask again and we will try to answer

Not this dude :)
Try downloading a heli manual...all the parts (too many to list) are there and how it's built as well.
I'm curious to know what good you feel a list of heli parts would be to you...being a newbie you probally could gain a lot more usefull information by reviewing the hundreds of beginner threads...just a helpfull suggestion.

Basically you will need :

The heli kit itself,
with the manual you can determine the other components needed to build.
Some of these items may or may not come with the kit, most may need
in addition to the kit, engine, muffler,blades main and tail, electronics
such as Heli transmitter, servos,gyro,switch and charge harness,receiver,battery, remote glo adapter, starter adapter etc., along with tools for assembly and setup.
Oil, grease,CA, locktite , paint and other supplies may be needed also.
After the initial build and setup , field gear will be needed to fuel and start the heli.
Try to stop by a local RC heli flying site and check out some heli's and
gear, also a RC heli book like "Ray's RC heli manual" would be a great investment.
It seems like a lot at first but after you gain a bit of knowledge and experience it's a fun and challenging hobby.

Sounds like you need to do a bit of research

Try these links to find out the basics about helis:

http://www.raptortechnique.com/
http://www.natew.com/rcheli/
http://www.cjwoods.com

And of course read these forums.

Have you been to an RC flying field where they fly helicopters? Many of your basic questions will be answered by just watching and it will be a lot of fun too.

There are lots of options (electric, nitro, gas), but I would recommend you study something basic like a Raptor. Try to find an assembly manual and read it along with information in these forums until you understand how it goes together.

Hi nrg30,
were those helicopter components for the i/c(nitro) or the electric motor
Those components were for a nitro heli, I consider that to be a good
way to get started in RC heli's.
Most RC heli's still need the basic components to fly, just different
combinations and parts to suit the particular application.
Get "Ray's" manual and read through it , besides answering many questions it will give you a solid info background , it will make your
quest for info a lot more meaningful to you.
