"So much fun!!!!"
jmshelton01
We purchased this set last Christmas (2012), unfortunately it took us until October to finally get them built and boy were we missing out! I do have to say that you need to purchase some modeling glue and the recovery wadding. I am new at this and not realizing I needed these things held us up a bit. I have 4 boys (ages 10 and under). They loved putting the rockets together with their dad. We finally launched and it went perfect. We set it off 3x and had our neighbors watching from across the field. A week later we got them out again. I love to see the excitement on my kids faces as it launches and to see them run to recover the rocket. Buying more engines this Christmas!!! This brings me back to 8th grade science class - the first time I built my own rocket. Would definitely recommend!

"My first starter kit."
jasonpitman74
Great kit! with everything you need to get rocketing except glue paint motors and batteries. The Amazon was an awesome rocket and very easy to assemble. Loved the easy fit plastic parts , finally wore out the motor retainer but repaired it with super glue and left over plastic lugs after about 20 launches , great value. Good combination of a large and small rocket included with a launch pad and that is still going strong. Launcher failed after 30 flights due to safety not engaging , purchased another one for approxamately $7 on sale to keep the kit going.

 
"Tandem-X Launch Set is Excellent Choice!"
jeverson
How can you go wrong? For a beginner set, this is perfect! You receive a giant Amazon rocket that is super easy to assemble (to get your feet wet). Then, after building the Amazon, you can progress into building the Crossfire. The Crossfire is a wonderful rocket. Reliable and well designed and built. This is a great pair of rockets. Plus, you receive the launch set for future rockets in your fleet. Definitely recommend!

 
"Excellent buy for those starting in the hobby"
wallyum (Ft. Thomas, KY)
With the exception of motors and batteries, this set has everything the first timer needs to get started in the hobby. The Amazon is a credible almost ready to fly bird that can be built the night before your first launch, and is a decent performer on small fields when loaded with a B6-4. Once you wet your whistle with the Amazon, move on to the Crossfire, which adds beginning construction and painting techniques to the mix.
