185 - Helicopter


Helicopter with handheld crank control and lever for altitude control on left side. Novelty 1960 - and does no longer appear in the price list 1963. This 3-blade helicopter has already the rotor-brake underneath the fuselage - however no radar-antenna was installed. The Control Panel shows, beside other indicated instruments, a "real" altimeter, which, moved by the lever, indicates the current altitude. This game was available with either red-black or red-white striped base station as well as with white, red or yellow knob on the lever.

The ideal game for a basic student in Air Traffic Control :-)

189 - Helicopter


Most probably a printing mistake in the 1960 price list, since the number is crossed out and the No. 090 is written with a pencil or ball point pen behind. Else the 090 isn't listed.


190 - Radar Helicopter


Novelty in 1960 - presented as "Radar Helicopter" - 2 clockworks - on front side one wind-up key and 2 levers for altitude and direction control. Separate clockwork inside the helicopter for the drive of the rotor. The now installed radar antenna rotates together with the helicopter around the base station. Between the control knobs you can see the "control panel" including the the "radar scope" - and the inserted plastic disc with target rotates together with the movement of the helicopter

The ideal game for an advanced Air Traffic Controller :-)
