1968 Sega Helicopter

Description: Helicopter, Sega, 7/68, similar to Midway's helicopter game Whirly Bird (1969) and Choppper (1974), and Amusment Engineering's Helicopter Trainer (1968). Sega Helicopter used an 8-track tape for background sound for the helicopter engine and rotor sound effects. But the the speed of the tape player changes to roughly correspond to the throttle setting of the model helicopter, so the sound gets faster as the helicopter goes faster. Sound effect can be heard here (thanks to M.Clayton for this file).
