We have had several inquiries about Aero Pack’s rocket retrieval buggy. Here is some general information that covers a few of the questions we have been asked: The buggy’s name is ‘Landshark’. It is not a mobile rocket launcher. The rack is just for securing a spent rocket, in place, for transport. The Landshark took a year for us to build. It weighs only 875lbs and has a 6 speed 195HP Hayabusa engine. This gives a high power-to-weight ratio for dramatic performance. The suspension travel is 18” front and rear. It was featured in and on the cover of Sand Sports magazine. The onboard GPS receiver allows for easy location of rockets with GPS transceivers.
