Some YouTube conments :

I fondly remember my Vertibird in the early 70’s. I spent hours playing with it until the plastic rotor broke, although I think it came with a spare and you could order more from Mattel. There were other makes over the years but none used real thrust vectoring the way the Vertibird did. Other brands just had a rotor that spun for appearance but didn’t provide lift and had a servo that lifted the assembly up/down/forward/backwd

Vertibird was the real-deal and was every kids dream back in the day!
