X-tra value is what you get with the Tandem-X two rocket Launch Set. The Amazon is a huge rocket standing nearly 3 feet tall yet it's from our E2X Series and easy to assemble! The Crossfire ISX is a Skill Level 1 kit that soars to 1150 feet and both launch on standard Estes engines! LAUNCH SYSTEM INCLUDED Skill Level 1 – Crossfire ISX The Crossfire ISX is a Skill Level 1 kit that can easily be built in about a day. This rocket features a totally streamlined shape with aerodynamic fins and nose cone. It stands 15.6 inches tall. When launched with powerful Estes standard engines, this bullet can reach cloud busting heights up to 1,200 feet. A preassembled 12 inch parachute returns the Crossfire back to earth to launch again and again.
Excellent Starter Kit for New Rocketeers

These are the first rockets I have purchased as an adult (I had one as a kid…..over 25 years ago), and I love them. This kit was nice for 2 reasons – it came with its own launcher, and there are 2 different levels of rockets to build. The taller “Amazon” rocket was much easier to build and took me around an hour or so to build (with the help of my 5 year old). The smaller one took a bit longer (plus the time needed to wait for the paint to dry).
Great model rocketry starter kit

If you are interested in model rocketry, this is definitely the right place to start. This kit includes everything you need to send you rocket to the heavens, such as a complete launch pad system with launch controller, and two different rockets. The only things you have to supply are plastic cement, white glue, and the engines, which you can purchase at most hobby shops or sometimes your local WalMart. The best part of this kit is the fact that the rockets are two different skill levels so you can determine exactly how involved you wish to get into the model rocketry hobby. The larger “Amazon” rocket is skill level E2X, which only requires glueing a few pieces together and slapping on the decals. The smaller Crossfire ISX is skill level 1, which requires a little bit work to put together and you have to paint it yourself. This set is perfect for both adults looking to get into the hobby and children/teens with the appropriate adult supervision.
Fathers, sons and rockets!

It’s just one of those great moments you remember: going out with your dad to set off your rocket for the first time. So cool when it takes off. Crossing your fingers that the parachute will deploy. Then running to see if it landed in one piece. My wife told me that she overhead my son describng our first launch to his friends as if we had set off an intercontinental missile.
Great Starter Set

I bought this starter set for me and my two boys (Ages 7 & 4) to build together and launch. The Amazon was quite easy to build, with only some plastic cement, sandpaper, and a hobby knife needed – everything else is included. Some of the parts (threading the parachute and shock cord) are a little hard for small children to handle, but they can certainly participate in the gluing and applying the plastic cement and labels. I haven’t tried the Crossfire yet, but I do know it will be a little more complicated.

You won’t get the Porta-Pad II and Electron Beam controller as shown in the picture, you’ll get the Astron II pad and controller, which, according to the Estes website, is the newest launch set in their line-up. Doesn’t really matter one way or another, unless you’re purchasing batteries specifically for this set prior to arrival. The Astron II controller uses a 9V battery instead of the 4AA batteries that the product description tells you that you need. Also, you don’t really need “plastic model cement,” I use Loctite Control Gel super glue and it works great.

this product is awsome! the only downer is that it takes a while to put the little rocket together. the only supplies u need are scissors and super glue. i would definately buy this product again. (hint:check what engines your rocket uses, the big one usually uses a C6-5 and the small one a B or a C).
a great starter kit for a great price

This kits is excellent and at an excellent price. It comes with everything you need to launch minus batteries, engines and wadding. The thing i like the best about this kit is that the two rockets are from different skill ranges. The big one “amazon” is really simple and requires no painting or cutting. My 9 year old neice could of put this together just use a little glue and put on stickers. The smaller one “crossfire” is a skill level 1 kit. You will have to cut, sand, measure and paint but is more enjoyable since you actually have to make the rocket. This kit is great for kids getting interested in rockets cause in a few hours they can launch the big easy rocket and if they’re up to it spend a day building the smaller one and then launch that one. Also great for dads who are going to build it with their son cause the son can build (and will want to cause its so big) the “amazon” and the dad can start to build the crossfire. Also the two rockets are very differnt the amazon will go about 600ft (depending on the engine used) while the crossfire will go 1200ft at lighting speeds. pros and cons on the differences are that the higher it goes the harder it is to track down after cause it can drift farther while decending and is hard to follow on its way up but is exciting. while the amazon will never leave your sight and doesn’t drift that far due to its larger size and weight, just not quite as fast off the pad but still cool cause your launching a 3 ft rocket up. all and all if your looking to get a starter set you can miss with this, just remember they will need engines, wadding and AA batteries. happy flying
Excellent starter kit for the novice

This rocket set is great! My 8 ye old son and I built the larger Amazon Rocket (didn’t have time to get he Crossfire ready for today), which calls for a B size engine, but after reading several of the reviews, I opted for the larger C6-5 engine. It did not disappoint. Went out with my son today for his first rocket launch experience. He was in awe at how well his rocket did.
