Skill Level 0 (E2X) & 1
Two is better than one! You'll get extra value with the Estes Tandem-X flying model rocket launch set. This exceptional rocket set features a pair of extreme, high performance rockets with a launch system for launching them. Whether you're a new rocketeer or a seasoned veteran, launch in tandem for an exciting model rocket experience!

The E2X (Easy to Assemble) Amazon is as imposing as the name sounds. This giant towers almost three feet high and is quick and easy to build! A tiger-striped body tube, precolored plastic nose cone and fins and self-stick decals make building this rocket easy to do in about an hour. When flown on our standard engines, this huge rocket can reach heights over 650 feet with recovery on a colorful 18 inch preassembled parachute.

The Crossfire ISX is a Skill Level 1 kit that can easily be built in about a day. This rocket features a totally streamlined shape with aerodynamic fins and nose cone. It stands 15.6 inches tall. When launched with powerful Estes standard engines, this bullet can reach cloud busting heights up to 1,200 feet. A preassembled 12 inch parachute returns the Crossfire back to earth to launch again and again.

Launch sets are a great way to get started in model rocketry! They include a rocket (or two), versatile launch pad and reliable launch controller. Plus, you get to choose what Estes rocket engine(s) you'd like to use to launch your new rocket(s) by purchasing them separately.

Skill Level E2X (Easy to Assemble):  No paint or special tools needed. E2X model rocket kits contain parts that are pre-colored, easy to assemble, plastic fins or fin units and plastic nose cones. Glue the parts together as instructed, apply the self-stick decals and attach the recovery system.
