"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.

 
"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.

 
"Fantastic starter set"
Nakota1294
This is a perfect starter kit for the parent/kid team, it combines a super easy to build Amazon and a little higher skill level Cross-Fire. The Amazon is a plastic fin/motor mount module rocket while the Cross-Fire is a traditional cardboard tube rocket motor mount with balsa fins rocket. We ended with a slight kink to the Amazon due to the coupling being a little sloppy in joining the two sections of the rocket body together that wasn't realized until the glue had set up, the rocket still flies straight though so I haven't felt the need to correct this cosmetic issue (besides, I'm the only one who can see it). Both rockets fly good with the Cross-Fire being a fast mover and the Amazon launching like it has some mass and building steam. The launch pad that comes in this kit is a pretty sturdy unit and is impressive for the entry price to rocketry, it breaks down easily for transport and storage and makes accommodation to mount other guide wire diameters so you can launch mini's. The launch control we received with our kit was yellow but otherwise is the same as pictured, it has a safety key that my 5 y/o is unable to press and make the connection necessary to launch, as a result it takes both of us to launch a rocket (which is good). We have not had a failure to launch with this controller with one exception that was easily attributed to a faulty igniter.
