A bit late (or early?) for Halloween, sure to be a hit with gothic rocketeers at any time! Ozzy Osborne's pet rocket?
Estes says "Inspired by gothic legend (which one? - ed.), and making an imposing sight on the launch pad, Estes' Hyper Bat is the super-cool goth hero rocket that's here to take on the bad guys! (Do they mean RC airplane flyers? - ed.)
Launched either as a single or 2-stage rocket, Hyper Bat is capable of incredible ascents up to 2,125 feet using Estes standard rocket motors (surely only this high with two stages? -ed.). With mission accomplished, Hyper Bat returns to base under its 30.5cm preassembled parachute. (how close to base depends on the wind, doesn't it? - ed.)
This Skill Level 2 kit assembles easily and features a quality body tube, plastic moulded nose cone, laser-cut wood fins and waterslide decals to create a crusader for rocket justice! Paint Hyper Bat how you like, but we think that black has the edge... (and if you paint it white for better find-ability, you can't see the decals! - ed.)
Hyper Bat requires a launch system; (launch controller and launch pad), rocket motors, igniters and recovery wadding to operate. You can get it all right here from Europe's biggest model rocketry specialist!
