Anybody remember these? I had something like this back, oh, 30 years ago, I think! I seem to remember it was bigger and not military themed, but the basics were the same, and it flies about the same.

These are called Command Force Chopper Patrol, and come in at least three versions. I got it for my son for his seventh birthday last night. They're at Target for $10. I'll probably go back and get another for my daughter, and/or for myself... :)
