Helicopter Mod – Ever wanted to roam the skies in Minecraft with precision and style? Then this mod is for you!
Helicopter Mod – What is it?
The Helicopter Mod is a mod for Minecraft that adds, you guessed it, a helicopter in-game. I have to say too, that in my opinion, it’s one of my favorite mods. The helicopter is incredibly easy to control, and the crafting recipe makes it so you can get this helicopter fairly early in the game. The crafting recipe is as follows:
See? It’s not hard to craft the helicopter. However, if you ask me, it’s too easy for what it offers. I mean, this helicopter allows you to roam the land at a fast rate, all without depleting your hunger, has incredible precision and flexibility, unlike Flan’s Plane Mod. Don’t get me wrong now. Flan’s Plane Mod is good, but let’s be honest, it’s resource intensive and doesn’t offer much flexibility, as in you have make very wide turns just to turn around. With this mod, you don’t need coal or to craft missiles to use them, and you can make 360 degree turns or more in the same spot. Now for the controls.
Controls of this Mod
This is fairly easy to control. The controls are as follows:
- Press “W” to go forward.
- Press “S” to go backward.
- Press “A” to strafe left.
- Press “D” to strafe right.
- Use the mouse to turn left or right.
- Press “Space” to ascend.
- Press “Left Shift” to descend.
- Press and hold “R” to fire 12 rockets, or “hydra missiles”, in rapid succession.
- Press “M” to fire a missile, or a “sidewinder”. It takes a while for these to reload.
- Press “K” to return pitch to zero. This will make the helicopter stop, avoiding a would-be crash.
It may take a bit of time to get used to the controls, but once you have the controls buckled down, using this helicopter will be a piece of cake! Now for some screenshots of the mod.

- Install Minecraft Forge, Modloader, or any mod dependency listed in the yellow box below using the “Old-Fashioned” installation instructions to the left.
- Start Minecraft up. Close Minecraft afterwards.
- Navigate to the “.minecraft” folder. Once you open it, you will notice that there is a “mods” folder. If there isn’t a mods folder to be seen, create one.
- Place the mod inside the “mods” folder.
- Open Minecraft up and have fun!
For the most part, that’s it when it comes to Modloader and Forge mods. Also, please note that you no longer have to do steps 1 and 2 once you already installed it the first time (you may need to reinstall them however, if you updated your client). Also, just a heads up, if you don’t see the mod loaded into the game, you might have to extract the mod into a folder. Most mods work in their zipped form, but some require you to extract them first. Have fun!
