great deal
By tkotche January 13, 2013
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 dissappeared; came down 2 minutes later about 150-200 yards away.

Perfect Starter Set
By RocketYoda May 24, 2013
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...
