U-Fly-It was a toy plane made from 1970 to 1975 by Schaper (although you could find it in stores for years afterwards). The toy was simple but exciting for the 70s, the plane was on a string and you could steer and land it.
The Instructor Pilot set came with everything you needed to take to the sky, but they also made some additional toys for the flight-minded kid. This included:
- F-4E Phantom Playset
- Barnstormer Playset
In addition to U-FLY-IT, Schaper also made the U-DRIVE-IT playset. While these toys are appreciated by fans, they are also still very affordable on the secondary market. I have seen working good condition versions of U-FLY-It well under $30.
