Destination Mars™ Leaper™ Starter Set

Destination Mars™ Leaper™ Starter Set

Officially it’s the LAMPMU – Low Altitude Mars Personal Maneuvering Unit – but no one ever calls it that. To most people, on Earth and on Mars, it’s simply “The Leaper”. Developed for the first Mars Expedition of 2035, the jetpack was envisioned as a way to rapidly travel between surface habitats. What the engineers didn’t count on was just how fun it would be! Why walk when you can leap!

Officially it’s the LAMPMU – Low Altitude Mars Personal Maneuvering Unit – but most people on Earth refer to it as “The Leaper.” The easy-to-assemble Leaper is constructed from durable EPP foam, and can be ready to launch in minutes. No gluing, sanding, or painting required for this kit.

There’s no engine hook, just add a few layers of masking tape around the middle of the engine for a friction fit and engine retention during flight. At launch, balanced by the extended stabilizer rods, the Leaper can reach up to 75 ft using the recommended Estes A10-0T engine – a great choice for small flying fields. The lightweight Leaper features featherweight recovery – at the peak of flight, the engine ejects, shifting the rocket’s center of gravity for a gentle, upright landing without a parachute or streamer.

LAUNCH SYSTEM includes Mini Launch Pad and Electron Beam Launch Controller.

WHAT YOU NEED TO LAUNCH (sold separately): Starters and recovery wadding. Four 1.5V high quality AA alkaline batteries are also required for launch controller (not included).
