New Addition: Heli-Baby RC Helicopter

Schluter’s Heli-Baby was one of the first RC helicopter kits on the market.   This particular Heli-Baby, which is complete and partially assembled, was purchased in the mid-1960s by Arthur R. Pelous.  Arthur managed to overcome the instructions (written in German) and got the model fully assembled, but he never quite got the hang of flying it.

The partially assembled Schluter Heli-Baby kit in its original box, complete with the canopy and pilot dummy. The pilot dummy sports a very bright orange jumpsuit and a headset.The Heli-Baby was donated by Arthur R. Pelous, In Memory of His Brother, Louis M. Pelous, Jr.  Thank you for helping to grown the museum’s collection!
