Much like the O scale one, there's a lever on the side to launch it. I guess it powers up, then you move the switch lever and it takes off. I have 2-3 of the flats w/o the helicopter, with the box that's a nice high-dollar seller. 80+ I'd say

after you crank the base up. You can manually trip is anywhere, but they can come off quite rapidly....and hit you in the face.
