I have a Mini-Typhoon II and a regular Typhoon I. Do you know where I could pickup a skirt/airbag for the Typhoon I? I bought it with a damaged skirt, but is otherwise working.

I am thinking one day, I may build my own version of this:

I saw replacement skirts for the II on ebay the other day while looking at some older tyco models. Might try there.

I can't remember but one of the Tycos/Nikkos was actually a Tamiya Grasshopper/Hornet. It was yellow. This was a personal score for me as it was free and I was able to wire it to full speed until the battery died. Trying times!

The Typhoon only seemed to work on flat ground.

The Typhoon Hovercraft was my first Taiyo/Tyco RC which I still have today and it works!

I've got 2 NIB turbo jet hoppers (a Red&black one, the black one is the second version with the oval block tires), 1 NIB 2wd jet fighter (white) and 1 NIB black mini hopper.
I really like these cars a lot.

Here are some pictures of all the NIB&used cars i had bought in one lot.
Most of the cars have been sold on, earlier i said that i still have a NIB mini hopper but that's incorrect. About 6 months ago i did sold the last one along with one of my 2 jet fighters.
So now i only have the black&red turbo jet hopper and 1 jet fighter.



Back into their boxes

And both jet fighters i once had, but one has been sold.


Hope you all like the pictures.

The Jet Fighter looks a lot like the Tamiya boomerang !
