Rotolite 3 Head Helicopter Units

These are the classics here!! Circa 1978 - 1979!! These units are really from the disco era!! There is a single power cord that operates the lamps and rotation motor. These units actually take a bit to get up to speed. It's amusing to see them start slow and get up to speed after a few seconds. The unit is actually a piece of plywood with 3 individual pin spots bolted to it. Each lamp has its own transformer and power switch. The base unit only has a single power circuit so there is actually a power tap used to connect all of the pin spot power cords together. Very primitive!! Units made here in the US. I have a 6 head version coming soon that actually has an adjustable speed control!! There units are for sale!!
