Blast Off to Extreme Heights
With two rocket kits, the Tandem-X Launch Set offers two unique
launching experiences. The aptly-named is the bigger of the two
rockets: it towers at almost three feet tall and features a
fearsome tiger-stripe decal. When flown with a standard Estes
engine, the can soar to heights of 600 feet.
The Crossfire is a smaller craft, standing just a little over 15
inches tall. In spite of its size, this little rocket can blast
off to seriously impressive altitudes. Thanks to its aerodynamic
fins and nose cone, the Crossfire can reach cloud-bursting
heights of 1,150 feet. Both rockets are outfitted with colorful,
preassembled parachutes, which ensure they can float gently back
to Earth for another flight.
An Introduction to Rocket Building
The Tandem-X Launch offers just the right amount of challenge
for novice rocket builders. The is an E2X (easy-to-assemble)
rocket, and requires no paint or special tools for assembly. It
can be built in less than an hour: simply glue the plastic fins
to the tube, install the engine, and attach the parachute. Finish
the rocket off with a few self-stick decals, and you're ready to
Once builders have mastered the basics, they can move on to the
more advanced Skill Level 1 Crossfire. With its plastic nose cone
and laser-cut balsa fins, the Crossfire requires a little more
finesse. Assembling the rocket can take an entire afternoon, but
it's a rewarding and educational process. Builders will learn
several beginner-level rocket techniques, such as painting and
sanding. Estes has also included an illustrated, step-by-step
instruction guide to help keep the assembly fun, smooth, and
In addition to the thrills it provides, the Tandem-X also has
significant educational value. The set transforms kids into
amateur rocket scientists, encouraging them to think about how
the rockets work. Rocket building teaches kids the basics of
propulsion, flight, and aerodynamics, and can help foster an
early interest in science and engineering. Even failed launches
can turn into a learning experience.
Requires an Estes Engine
Both rockets require a specialized Estes engine to launch. For
the , Estes recommends a B4-2 engine for your first flight. The
rocket is also compatible with other Estes engines, including the
B4-4, B6-2, B6-4, C6-3, and C6-5. For the Crossfire, Estes
recommends the A8-3 for first flight, and the B4-4, B6-4, C6-5,
and C6-7 for more advanced launching.
