Welcome to Helicopterjohn.com

Over the years I have manufactured several items for the R/C Helicopter Community mainly Swashplate Leveling (Setup) Tools for various makes of helicopters.  I recently purchased a new HAAS TM-1P 3 Axis CNC Toolroom Mill and have started to expand my product line.

I also decided to create this web site to enable potential customers to better view my products and associated documentation.  Check out my gallery for interesting pictures and videos.

Also, to make it easier for people to purchase my products I now offer Pay-Pal as the option for payment which will also allow you to use your current credit card.

Furthermore, I also offer international shipments to other modelers around the world.

Enjoy the site and if you have any questions please use the Contact button at the top of the page to send me a message.

Testimonial

"I had the personal pleasure of having Helicopter John demonstrate the proper method of using his Swashplate Leveling Tool for my Raptor 50 at our local flying club field the other day. Helicopter John set it up just the way he explains in his Instruction Sheet. It was quick, simple and couldn't be easier. Now my Raptor flies the way it should and you know what? I didn't even have to turn one link.... the blades were in perfect alignment. What a great little tool!"

John,

 Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know your Tx balancer is the best thing that happened to my flying since I bought my Futaba 14MZ three years ago. Prior to that, I had a Futaba 9Z. I use kind of a weird arrangement where I use my thumb on my left hand for rudder/throttle and pinch with my thumb and index finger on my right hand for aileron/elevator. The season I got the 14MZ, I started having problems with my fingers going numb about 3/4 of the way thru the Masters (pattern) schedule. I didn't realize that I was holding the radio different because of the imbalance and really had my right hand stretched out and strained. I thought I was getting carpal tunnel. Worse yet, my flying was deteriorating which I attributed to  age (55) and the switch to electric power.  Long story short, your balancer fixed everything and within two flights, I was back to my old style of holding the Tx and flying better than ever. Thanks for a great product!!!!!
