"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!

"great deal"
tkotche (my backyard)
This is a great starter kit. The Amazon rocket is very easy to build and goes pretty high with the C6-5 engine. They should sell that rocket by itself (mine ended up in a tree). The Crossfire takes a little more time and skill to put together, but it goes really high for a small rocket (1250 feet with the C6-5). I set if off on a cloudy day and it disappeared; came down 2 minutes later about 150-200 yards away.

 
"Sorry to say"

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!
