As with probably every licensed product Remco made in the 1960s (with the exception of the Doctor Doolittle Ugly Mugly Projector, but I digress), this flying Batcopter seems to be an item they were already producing, with some new stickers put on it... once the Batman license ran out, they could just continue selling it as a flying helicopter!
Speaking of the Ugly Mugly Projector, that product was intended to compete with Kenner's Give-A-Show Projector, much like the Marx Picture Pistol from 1966 was! This is probably the reason it was the late 1970s or early 1980s before Batman would appear in a Give-A-Show Projector set!
The daily blog featuring photos of Batman-related merchandise going up through the 1970s, with a few 1980s items thrown in here and there! Your comments are welcomed!
Please note that I do not have any of these items for sale, and the vast majority of them are items I do not own at all. The photos were collected from eBay auctions over the years, and I wanted to share them with you all!
If you're interested in tracking down any of these items, I wish you luck, and hope that these posts help give you the information you need to find them offered on eBay! If you do purchase any of these items as a result of these posts, I'd love to hear about them -- and if you have better photos of anything I post here, I'd love to see them, too, and share them with my readers! You can email photos to me at waffyjon at comcast dot net. And if you link to a Batcave Trophy Room post, please let me know, and I'll add your blog to the blogroll!
