A black body tube, precolored plastic nose cone and fins, and tiger striped self-stick decals make building this rocket easy to do in about an hour. When flown on our Estes standard model rocket engines, this huge rocket can reach heights over 650 feet. The Crossfire ISX is an intermediate level 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 model rocket engines, this bullet can reach cloud busting heights up to 1,150 feet. A 12-inch parachute returns the Crossfire back to earth to launch again and again.
