The Dolby Atmos demo clips are contained on the Blu-ray discs that Dolby has handed out at various exhibitions and industry gatherings. These discs are not for sale on the retail market, but you can buy them (often at jacked-up prices) from third parties such as this one
on eBay. (Note that I can not vouch for the seller and have no way of verifying whether the disc he is selling is authentic, but the price seems reasonable.)
The helicopter demo is included on the 2015 demo disc. I have a copy of this clip, but I don't recall where I got it--probably from someone who had posted it on the Atmos HT thread
. You can find eight other Atmos clips available for free download at Demo World
. Clicking on the demo title (i.e., "Amaze (Lossless)
") will take you to the download page, where you must click on the Dolby Atmos graphic at the center of the page to open the download dialog box where you will want to choose to save the file to your computer and then transfer it to whatever physical media (e.g., thumb drive) you wish to play it on. Note, however, that you must use an external player, since your AVR's USB input will not recognize an M2TS file.
Since you have not installed the Infinity speakers yet you might want to consider that the cut-out they require (11-3/8") is exceptionally large and could therefore make it difficult if you decide to swap them for a different speaker at some point down the line. The RC80i, e.g., is about two inches smaller in diameter and in depth. I mention this just in case you have not firmly decided to stick with this particular speaker in your current setup.
