If you are like me you ( or not ) in having to many rockets and no way to properly display our finish model rockets. Unless you
build you own display stands . Would you buy a Quest display stand if it were sold separately and how much would you be willing to pay.

At This time I do not know the answer to your question . I hope to get a good response to this poll and forward results to Quest to see if this would be a good marketing Idea.

I could definately use some more, but would only buy them if they were $0.50 or less, like a 3-pack for a $1.
Any more than that, and I'd rather just glue a spent casing to a CD or something like that.
I like the Quest stands, and those parts probably costs Quest less than a nickel each, so maybe they'll offer a 3-pack or something sometime.

I hear ya I'd like to see these display stand cost next to nothin' myself . But in reality maufactures gotta make a buck. and as you know all Quest item are packaged in Mexico and I'm not sure if any or all of there injected molding plastic parts are also made in Mexico. If that be the case, I'd pay less than 1/2 the price of Quest cheapest kit tops. But to do this poll I had to set the dollar figure somewhere . So lets hear from you all Pro or con input is important so VOTE. Thanks

Personally, I've bought a couple Quest Rockets just for the display stand. I've considered resin casting a master so I'll always have some on hand. I really like these for low powered stuff. Would I buy them if seperate ?

Sure would, just because it would save me using my 60 dollar resin kit for such a small item. 8)

I got my first Quest display stand in the Penetrator quick-kit I built last weekend. The stand has NO CHANCE of keeping the 1.1 meter long Penetrator upright, but it does a beauty of a job displaying my Custom Razor.

IMHO the best, comercially available, rocket stands are the ones from Semroc.

Yeah, there not much good for the tall rockets, but I've got about a dozen of them holding shorter rockets on top of my bookcase now. I think the one from my Penetrator is actually holding my Estes Cluster Bomb. :)
