it was a helicopter that had a guide wire atached to a remote car looking box. and a board to try to land on certain spots. the helecopter blades spined fast enough to pick it up and fly around the board, but to land on board it would hit you in the face. im sure it was baned. but would like to know what it was called , and maybe somewhere to buy one. thank you rick

I had this toy, until the plastic rotor broke. It was a great toy. The control box had two levers on it i think and in the center there was a sort of tower that stood about 9" tall. I tried to fix the rotor but had no luck. I don't remember the name.

I remember this game. It was awesome. My brother found a new one several years ago and bought it for my son. A great memory made even greater now that my brother is with the Lord. Sorry Georgia I couldn't help you in locating one.

I had one growing up and I thought the name was ver-dee-bird. I don't remember the manufacturer.

I beleive this toy was called the Vertibird Air Police, I had one and remember it quite well. It was white and had a hook on the bottom so you could pick up road signs and a car that came with it. I also had a Star Trek Enterprise toy like this aswell a few years later, it was pretty much the same but it was the enterprise.

Vertibird Air Police IS the name.......THANK YOU. Wanted this for my granddaughter but unfortunately it looks like it's not made anymore. Found a used one in ebay for $50 +shipping and auction is still not over. Will keep trying to search for one. Maybe my mother still have mine in her attic somewhere....Haha. Probably Do but OMGosh where....

I knew I'd find the name of this toy here :) We just came across one of my favorite family pictures, from Christmas 1974. My brother had received this toy from Santa and my mother got a great picture of my dad, then in his early 30s, playing with it - absolutely enthralled. Not sure if my bro ever got a turn ;)
