Vintage 1950s Electromic Flash Remote Control Model Plane Battery Powered
Vintage Electromic Flash Battery Operated Toy Plane
You don’t see these around too often! 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 heavy wire axle.
A flashlight-sized plastic remote is connected to the plane with a plastic covered wire. This wire is about 58″ long. Instructions for operating plane are on the back of the box, in a nutshell, you 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 power up when we put batteries in the remote, we have not given it a test flight though. Plane is in very good condition with light wear on the edge of one wing, tape that held wire on a wing has also come loose, wire appears to be in great shape(please see photos for close look at condition). Two additional propellers are included. Plane measures 12″ long, wingspan is 14 1/4″. Comes in original box which is in very good condition showing normal wear, some creasing and discoloration.
This plane is a fun toy that would be an excellent showpiece for your collection!
