With this magic device, a Small-sized pilot and up to 50 lbs. of gear gains the speed: fly 25 ft. (poor). A leather harness straps this device to a pilot’s back. A turbopter is essentially two propellers mounted on a “V” shaped metal beam. At the ends of the propeller blade are magically enchanted torches that spew orange flame. These boosters power the vehicle. In flight, the machine sounds like a nest of hornets. The pilot must be strapped into the harness and have at least one hand free to operate the levers at his waist to direct the craft. When not directed, the turbopter descends 5 squares per round. If it hits the ground while out of control, it is destroyed. The device travels about 3 miles per hour, and 72 miles per day (if the pilot does not sleep).
