Default Why do heli radios

cost more then airplane radios? I was just looking at 2 of my futaba radios, 1 is a 9ZAP the other is a 9ZHP. They both have the same programmimg features. The only difference I can visually see is that the 9ZHP is missing the snap roll direction switches on the back, and the throttle stick is missing the ratchet feature, and the top 3 position flt switch is on the left versus the right side. Usually when items are not installed on most products the price is lower, not so with heli radios. Any explanations?

The heli radios generally come with better (and one more) servos and a larger receiver battery.

In the case of JR (unless you order package different than standard which you can now do) they would have one more servo, next step up quality of servo, larger receiver battery (1000 vs 600) and charger with higher receiver side ma (100 vs 50)
