This power is yours when the Musician gives you the magic flask that activates it. It allows you to fly while
retaining control of your direction. (...)—Manual, Rayman
The Super Helicopter, also known as the Super Helico, is a temporary power in the original game, which is received twice, in Mr Stone's Peaks, when Rayman is given the potion by the Musician, and in Pencil Pentathlon, where he finds another potion. It can be considered as an upgrade to the helicopter power, as it allows him to fly in the air with his hair. The Super Helicopter is also used by flying Antitoons. This ability is also available in the portable version of Rayman 1. There are specific levels where Rayman eats a specific kind of a plant that gives him the ability to fly with the Super Helicopter.
In Rayman 2, when Rayman goes beneath the Sanctuary of Rock and Lava, Ly appears before him and gives him a Silver Lum, which upgrades his helicopter to super helicopter again, so that he can fly in the huge lava corridors. Unfortunately, at the end of the level, he loses this upgrade to Foutch, who thumps him. In Rayman Revolution, this was partially restored, meaning that he could permanently fly only over pools of lava.
The super helicopter ability was revisited in Rayman 3, in the form of the Throttle Copter. The Throttle Copter is, of the five, the power with the shortest time limit, though it allows for brief flying similar to that in previous games. Instead of using his hair, Rayman uses the helices on his helmet.
In the Game Boy Advance version of Rayman 3, Rayman receives the power to fly with his Helicopter so long as he collected a Blue Lum - small ones would let him fly for a little while, whereas large ones allowed him to fly until the end of the level.
In Rayman: The Animated Series, in order to avoid a fatal fall after a steamroller falling off a cliff by accident, Rayman holds the gang and flies in the air in No Parking episode. Since the power wasn't effective for a long time due to the weight carrying of the whole gang, everyone fell and crashed down into a house above Inspector Grub's.
