Brand Overview

Henseleit is a brand of remote control helicopters that are designed and manufactured by Henseleit Helicopters of Germany. The brand is the brainchild of owner and master designer Jan Henseleit who has been engineering, building, and selling RC helicopters for years.

The Henseleit brand has gained much recent popularity (as of August 2011) in the RC helicopter marketplace with the release of Jan's newest variant, the Three Dee RIGID (TDR for short). The TDR is the sole current model that occupies the Henseleit brand; however, there are several predecessors like the Three Dee MP-XL, the Three Dee MP, and the Three Dee NT that made up the brand prior to the newest arrival.

The Henseleit TDR as with the predecessors all built their unique place in the RC market with innovative design features that have always been focus on ultra-light weight design, low disc loading, minimalistic parts counts, high efficiencies of mechanical components, and cutting edge looks ... to name a few.
