Now keep in mind this was the 60's.
There was no controller. It had a string tied to it (you can see the eyelets for the string is located were the axle meets the chassis) and it ran in a circle, either off a pivot stake or you laid on your back and held the string and let the string pass over you.

Had a McCoy 60 on a control line airplane. That thing would bring up a blood blister if you were to slow.

Yes they were called Shrikes. Had one, loved that era of toys, busted my fingers many times but never lost one. the one listed above is cool. Not sure you could get a hold of the "glow fuel" that they ran on, but that stuff was awesome..... Me and a buddy put that in a lawn mower engine once. Ran away before the engine blew up - turn red hot. if you can get her started somebody will pay you for it.

Had several of these back in the late 60's. If you sent in Sprite bottle caps (50?)...they would mail you one. I'd hit the local college Coke machines with a magnet on a string and clean up! Guess I should have kept a few...
