This is a vintage "Electromic Flash" Battery Operated Plane, still in its original box. This plane was first manufactured in 1958. It has a great vintage look with futuristic space age graphics on the wings. The plane is made from a very light plastic and has detachable plastic wheels with a wire axle.
A flashlight-sized plastic remote is connected to the plane with a plastic covered wire 58" long. Find an area clear of trees and other obstacles, put the plane on the ground and point the remote control at it, press the control button down and lead the plane in a circle, it will pick up speed and launch into the air.
The plane did NOT power up when I put batteries in the remote. Plane is in very good condition with light wear on the edge of one wing, wire appears to be in great shape (please see photos for close look at condition). Plane measures 12" long, wingspan is 14 1/4". Comes in original box which is in poor condition missing 1/2 of the lid and showing normal wear, some creasing and discoloration. This is the earliest version known due to the METAL HOUSING remote control with original label.
This plane is a fun toy that would be an excellent showpiece for your collection! I had one when I was a child.
