"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.

"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.

 
"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.

 
"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). 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...
