Default Estes Exo-Skell parts

Never thought I'd say this, or even think it, but I'm looking for an Exo-Skell that is no longer flightworthy to try and make flightworthy one that a friend gave me. I have some personal history with this one as it once flew with me at B6-4 Field and wound up spending some time in one of the trees. (The EX-trees, as they've all been cut down.) My golf partner brought a bunch that belonged to his son back in the early 2000ish time period. I'm now the proud owner of an Estes Bandito, Hi-Flyer, Chrome Dome, Death Star, Lucky 7 and Big Dog, as well as a Quest Brighthawk and the remains of the aforementioned Exo-Skell. (Plus 39 motors and a barely used Xacto knife set. Pretty sure I can make most disappear at the next club launch as they belonged to a kid and will likely still appeal to a kid, especially for free, but I'm going to fly them at least once. Anyone have a ragged out Exo-Skell that's collecting dust that they wouldn't mind seeing gone? I'm short a leg and although I could likely gin something up, I'd like to try this route first.

Load fireworks atop the motor in the body tube.
A big "Buzz Bomb" with the plastic spinner removed is good for destroying unwanted rockets.
Send them off with a BANG atop a D12-0

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask what is "NORMAL" , you probably aren't

Failure may not be an OPTION, but it is ALWAYS a POSSIBILITY.
