The easy-to-assemble Leaper is an exciting addition to the Estes Destination Mars collection. You’ve never seen a model rocket like this before! Constructed from durable EPP foam, the Beginner-Level Leaper is a prefinished rocket that can be ready to launch in minutes. No gluing, sanding, or painting required for this kit. Simply insert the stabilizer rods and your model is ready for the launch pad.
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.
On launch day, prep the Leaper for flight with the recommended Estes A10-0T engine. 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 – high enough to impress but still low enough to track. Modest altitude flights also make the Leaper a great choice for small flying fields. At apogee and engine ejection, the Leaper rights itself and lands safely on its tripod legs. Mars survey mission completed – ready to launch again!
WHAT YOU NEED TO LAUNCH IT (sold separately): Estes Porta-Pad II Launch Pad or Klima Launch Pad, Estes Electron Beam Launch Controller or Klima Launch Controller, motors, starter and protective pad for the parachute.
You also need four high quality 1.5V AA or 9V alkaline batteries for the launch controller (not included).
