    I had one of those Vertibird helicoptor things, but mine was the Starship Enterprise from Star Trek. I have to say, I thought it was one of the dullest toys ever. Barely more interesting than the compass set I got from education-minded relatives that year!

    on-line prices 60-145 I've seeen quoted. Picked up mine battered for a tenner, as I wanted it for cannibalisation purposes. But the result has served on an exhibition model railway for ten years.

    A couple currently on eBay, cheap, (so far).

    We did have fun when I brought in a vertibird clone (Chopper Patrol) to work, and set it up in an empty room. That was seriously popular but only a minority of us really got the hang of it... Which made the rest want to get better, and those few want to show off.
