Saturday Film Club: Mattel Vertibird Toy Helicopter

The Vertibird helicopter is firmly in the realm of toys I looked at in my mum's mail order catalogue, but knew I'd never actually see. To be honest, I'd still rather have had some Lego or something for the train set at the time, but that didn't stop me wondering. 

This video is fun because it's recorded by someone into RC helicopters who can explain what the controls really do, and also shows us how the toy works, which is very ingenious. If I'd had one, I'd probably have taken it to bits and broken it anyway.
