The Tandem-X Launch Set includes two high-performance rockets, PLUS a complete launch system all in one box. Start with the Amazon, an easy-to-assemble rocket. Designed with plastic fins, a pre-colored body tube and self-stick graphics, this Beginner level rocket can be built in under an hour. Add a C-powered engine, and the 29 inch tall Amazon soars upwards of 600 feet. The Crossfire ISX is your introduction to an Intermediate level rocket with a simple balsa fin design. This rocket can be easily assembled in a few short hours. The conical nose cone, broad fins, and self-stick decals creates an exceptionally sleek rocket you’ll be proud to fly—and with a C-powered engine on board, the Crossfire ISX can reach 1,150 feet before deploying its 12 inch parachute. Both rockets take off from the sturdy Porta-Pad II launch pad by push button command from the Electron Beam launch controller. All you need to add are building supplies and Estes rocket engines.
