I found Quest during my first time as a BAR in the 90s. I really liked them for many of the same reasons I like Centuri as a kid. One of those reasons is what I will call "paper shroud" rockets. Centuri seemed to pioneer this, at least in my memory, and Quest seemed to have taken on the mantle. In this case, the rocket is very similar to an old Centuri design I remember fondly as "the Bug". I thought it looked cool and I think Quest's Lifting Body looks cool as well. You can do things with paper that simple tube do not lend themselves to. The Bug and the Lifting Body are both gliders. That means, in my case, that I was flirtly with disaster every time I brought either one of them out but it sure looks nice! It is meant to fy on 18mm C motors and glide back down. It is new and unopened.

I am asking $40

This kit is offered for sale in an effort to liquidate my collection of kits and is being offered via cross postings on The Rocketry Forum and Ye Olde Rocket Forum. The price indicated is what I have determined by looking for evidence of similar sales but, admittedly, might reflect a poor judgement on my part. I'm just doing the best that I can. The price does NOT include shipping. Interested persons are invited to contact me via PM and I will calculate the shipping. Payment is expected by means of PayPal, Zelle or Venmo. My intention is to make shipments twice per week after confirming receipt of funds. I will try to give the most accurate descriptions I am able to provide and will happily answer any specific questions either by PM or within the post thread.

I'm trying to be fair and honor a "first come, first serve" precedence when dealing with inquiries. That invovles juggling messages I see while at work at the hospital coming from both TRF and YORF. That started out easy but got more complicated as there were more and more rockets listed. I made some mistakes and for that I am sorry.

I also don't mind holding rockets as you wait for more to become available. This does help with shipping costs and nobody has been more horrified than I over the current postal rates. That said, I am going to have to change one thing. I am only going to set aside "sold" rockets. I tried it the other way and a few times I was left in the lurch when others were interested in a rocket. That was only a mild annoyance. What I cannot tolerate is the mistakes that I made in selling something that had been promised. With my faulty memory and hectic schedule, the only way to prevent this when so many rockets are up for sale (with hundreds more to come) is to strictly segregate the sold stuff from the unsold stuff. A hold with an intent to buy now gets 24 hours, barring exigent circumstances, after that, it's back on the market.
