Game appearances

Sonic Lost World

In the Wii U version, PC version and Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Lost World, Helicopters are small remote control vehicles created by Miles "Tails" Prower to aid Sonic throughout his journey. In gameplay, they assist the player by dropping a bomb at their location, destroying all nearby enemies. Once the bomb hits the surface, the Helicopter disappears, requiring the player to use another one if they want to use the effect again.

Like all other RC Vehicles, they come in five different varieties. The variants of Helicopter RC Vehicles are mostly camouflage-based. The Materials needed to craft each one can be found below:
