This is a toy airplane made by Remco I think in the early 60"s. THE FLYING FOX AIRPLANE WITH BOX. This is a beautiful toy airplane made to represent the cockpit of an airplane and also a working airplane to pretend you're flying. It takes 4 D batteries. Had to play with this a little myself. Works great!

Everything works on this plane. The lights come on left and right side. Has a control to make the lights blink. The landing gear goes up and down. Dual controls left and right also goes up and down, The propeller speed varies with throttle controls on the dash. All the propellers have their blades. Compass knob on the dash is not broken. Turn indicators work on both sides of the dash. Battery compartment is clean and still has the battery holder.

This came from an Estate Sale so your buying as is. No returns. But its a great toy.

's what I found wrong. T is a chip missing in the black plastic on the co-pilots side toward the front of the plastic (see picture) Also I repaired the screw that holds the plane to the control stand. I think it's stronger then the original now. Plastic chip is missing around base of screw but mounted plane covers this up. (see picture of screw) Some of the decal is missing on the tail and also some of the window decal toward the rear of the plane on the pilots side only. (see picture)

Looking at other flying fox pictures, I don't think the wing nut on the top holding the plane is original. Otherwise I think this plane is in great shape for its age.

The box is is ruff on the top flaps. But the sides are in good shape. Has nice graphics. T are no inserts inside the box.

Shipping this UPS and letting them do the packing and shipping. I don't trust my packing on such a fragile toy.
