Anybody ever have one of the TNT Mini Choppers? It was from 1972 and used a Pee Wee with the filler tubes connected together with fuel tubing and a tiny vent hole drilled in the edge of the tank. Later, after TNT sold their stock of Mini Choppers to Estes, in 175, Cox came out with their SkyCoper which used the same torque powered rotor and an .020.

Back in 1972, I had a Trid-N-Tru Mini Copter, it flew great, but the plastic fell apart and cracked after a month or so due to the nitro attacking it. Currently I have one of the Estes Command 'Copter kits which is the same as the Mini Copter, but with no engine, and a NOS genuine Mini Copter which we found in the returned mechanize pile at Cox in 1980 when I worked in customer service.

Hey! I have one of those. Had it hanging from the ceiling until one day the string broke and it dropped to the floor, breaking the landing gear off. Now it's leaning against a Air Wolf for support!
