He began as a skill level 1 Estes "Hi Flyer"
but as components were drying on our "Fliskits
Farscape", he became wrapped in this nifto leftover holiday wrapping
paper and was rechristened SPIKE! That's right SPIKE! Full caps with
an exclamation point! He's 12" tall, can be launched with an engine
up to C power (that's about 15 newtons of thrust) which will drive SPIKE!
about 1600 feet up. He descends to Earth on a streamer so even if its a
little windy he'll find his way home.. He's SPIKE! Since SPIKE! has been
named SPIKE! we've become aware of a model by the Starlight Company named
"spike". Don't be confused like us...This is a one of a kind "odd
roc"...planet andy's SPIKE!
