the crossfire ISX is a very cool kit that builds easy and flies perfectly straight every time. an A8-5 will put it to 300 feet and a C6-5 to over 1000 feet. great kit that is for everyone.

One of the few medium-sized rockets, this kit has a really stylish look to it. The stabilizers on the fins and the engine cone are a nice touch. Construction is nice and straightforward. Be careful to test fit the fins into the engine mount before the glue sets on the mount; otherwise, the fins won't fit properly into the slots in the body. Don't underestimate how high this guy flies! With just a B engine and a calm day (at ground level, anyway), this rocket managed to drift 250 yards and get stuck in a tree. (Posted on 5/23/13)
Straightforward to build and paint, this rocket is a good choice for a mid-range skill 1 set. The fin design and engine mount are quite stylish, too. It doesn't fly as high as some of the smaller kits, but don't be fooled - even a B engine is big enough to send it up high enough so that its parachute descent will take it several hundred yards from the launchpad. I wouldn't try a C engine unless it was a perfectly calm day and you have a mile of space to work with. (Posted on 5/19/13)
