While I am sure that this commercial is overselling the coolness of the Lakeside’s Flying Devils!, I still wanted them. I had made a friend who had a massive slotcar setup in his basement and I had the bug and would dream about strange racing sets that had nothing to do with cars, things like boat based racing canals and of course flying model planes. The Flying Devils looked to deliver on that promise. Sadly I never received a set. despite my pitiful pleading.
This commercial, which I think is the only one for the set, features Kevin’s older brother from The Wonder Years, Wayne (Jason Hervey).
