Please note: Rockets require suitable motors (not included - available separately from specialist suppliers).

With the Estes Tandem X model launch set you get two rockets for the price of one. This exceptional set features two extreme, high performance rockets with a launch system. So whether you are new to rockets or a seasoned veteran, a tandem launch can be an unforgettable experience.

The easy-to-assemble Amazon towers almost three feet high. With a tiger-striped body tube, pre-coloured plastic nose cone and fins and self-stick decals this rocket can be assembled easily in about an hour. When flown on standard engines, this huge rocket can reach heights over 650 feet. Recovery is via a colourful 18-inch pre-assembled parachute.

Meanwhile, the Crossfire ISX is a Skill Level 1 rocket that can be built in about a day. This 15.6in rocket features a totally streamlined shape with aerodynamic fins and nose cone. When launched with powerful Estes standard engines, it can soar to heights up to 1,200 feet. A pre-assembled 12-inch parachute returns the Crossfire back to earth to launch again and again.

Q. Hi, can an altimeter be attached to the parashute of the smaller rocket? We are considering purchasing a rocket to generate altitude and may be payload (if possible to attach different weights as well) data for a science fair project.
A. Hi Katya, thank you for your question. 70-0369 is designed to be attached to the rocket to test the height achieved.
