"Perfect Starter Set"
RocketYoda (California)
Simply, a great value for any rocket starter set! WOW...two rockets and a launcher for this price...you can't go wrong with this kit. The Amazon rocket assembly is very easy for any age. Cardboard rocket tubes, plastic fins, plastic nose cone, self adhesive decals...minimal gluing. Heck,you can have this one out of the bag, constructed, and flying within 30 minutes even if you're slow... ;-)! Instant satisfaction for the kids (and adults). Lots of oohhhs and aahhhhs. The 2nd rocket, the Crossfire is also easy to build, but will need a little bit more time if you want to make it like the picture. The fins with this model rocket are balsa wood which will require a small amount of effort to paint. However, the end result is a beautiful rocket that will raise your skill level above the first rocket, the Amazon. However, if you don't want to paint it, that works too. It's just not as pretty as it disappears into the daylight sky...lol. Both rockets fly very well, so no issue there. Remember, this kit does NOT include rocket motors so don't forget to purchase a few. B6-4 or C6-5 would be my recommendation...around $8 for 3ea. Now, quit reading these reviews and go order/build your rockets. If these are your first rockets, you're going to have a blast!!! Have fun...

"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!

 
"Sorry to say"
OGPlayer1 (Sacramento CA)
I bought this starter kit so i could get back into model rockets on a budget. Unfortunately this does not come with the launcher and starter shown, i received the Astron II starter/launcher. This is a step down from the launcher and starter pictured, it uses a 9 volt battery opposed to 4AA batteries, plus they are both bright orange. I don't want to write a negative review but this has pushed me to write my first negative review, for anything. I do feel that this is worth the price but its not what i thought i was going to get.

 
"So much fun!!!!"

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!
