Default Crossfire ISX just finished

This babe is ready for launching perhaps tomorrow if the weather cooperates. An easy build, although painting took awhile with the on and off wind and rain here. Estes was very wise to start selling this as a stand alone kit. From it's appearance, it looks like it could hit Mach.

High on my list, but my HL doesn't restock or reorder anywhere near as often as they should. Most current kit on the shelf is the Mini Red Max.

I ordered mine direct from Estes for about $10, but shipping made it nearly twice that. I couldn't find it anywhere else either except when it is included in the Tandem X launch kit.

They have that. I just don't feel like paying for the extra stuff I don't need. I'll have to check Hobbylinc.

I have ordered items from Hobbylinc before. They offer great service and reasonable shipping costs and their prices are far below MRSP.

It's a great little kit, I couldn't believe it when I opened it up to see TTW fins!

The TTW fins are one reason why this kit is a quick build. I would say that this is a great SK1 kit that is also a good introductory kit for someone that is wanting to get into the model building part of the hobby as well as the sport rocketry part. I looked at the Hobbylinc website and they are selling it for something like $8 bucks plus shipping.
