It's Fightin' Giant Robot Friday the 13th with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. This series has a young man piloting the Red Baron robot, rather than a robot controlled by a small device. Here is episode 5 from the first season titled, "Smash The Mysterious Rocket Operation!" It's about the SSI (Secret Science Investigation) Team who find out the reason behind their enemy's artificial rain experiments. The 'poster' here is actually a Polydor 45 record sleeve of the theme.
