"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!

"Nice combo kit"
bonomijoe
Nice kit but the launch system is different than the one pictured. Two great rocket to get started into the hobby. Built them with my son and it was great. Great directions everything we needed but the motors and a battery. Wish the launch was the one pictured as the one supplied is a cheaper version.

 
"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.

 
"Tandem-X Simple Mod Upgrade to Amazon Rocket"
champfluff
The Crossfire ISX is a very nice rocket and the Amazon rocket in this kit is fine, but under powered. A simple upgrade is to purchase Estes Booster-55 Part no. 2257. The plastic fins should exchange, cut and peel off the black paper staging coupler on the booster. After removing the factory glue, scuff the plastic with course sandpaper and epoxy to the base of the Amazon tube and they are both black in color. Now you have a 24mm motor mount fin can in place of the 18mm motor mount fin can, but an 18mm motor adapter can still be used. Swap over the rubber shock cord for 150 inches of 80 lbs. stranded nylon fishing line and mount with epoxy. Add nose weight to compensate for the increase in engine mass, add extra wadding and your now C-11 ,or D-12 powered Amazon rocket will reach up to 1200 feet, surpassing Estes Top Shot, or Show Stopper. The launcher is adequate for the D motor mod, so record with video for better chance of recovery and have fun with this trick upgrade.
