Here is a poll for you.

For those of you that have tried the new Quest Q2G2 Igniters, would you like to see these Bulk packed? If yes how many 12,24,36,48 each

I have used these igniters in 2 D12 and 3 C6 clusters with 0 % fail rate.

In my opinion igniters are always needed, so buying a big bulk pack is a good investment :)

Definately if there was a good price break for a dozen or two. At the last DARS launch I gave a young boy a well flown Quest Brighthawk and motors. He made three flights and I had him use the Q2G2 initers for the ease of installation. I had him keep the rocket and he informed his dad that they had to buy somerockets. They had shown up to watch a friend fly.
The Q2G2 is a nice advance on model rocket igniters.

Bulk packs of at least 12, preferably 24 or more would be most welcome. The Q2G2 are great igniters, particularly for clusters, though I'm a bit hesitant to pay almost a buck apiece for them (with shipping, even more than that, since none of the LHS carry Quest around here). If I could get a bulk pack of 50 for something like $25, I'd go for it. I wonder though, from a business point of view, if these igniters are a method to get folks to buy more Quest motors? If we buy bulk packs, we're probably not using them on Quest motors, since they already come with them. And though I like the performance of the Quest (chinese) motors, I need to peel the paper wrap off to get them to fit into standard BT-20 motor tubes.

Yeah, I know, I should have got some Q2G2 during the xmas sale :mad:

Most defenitely they are great ignitors! Used them in the Trois Duex last month..Continuity check with the clubs launcher did not cause a problem with a few of the new Super C's that I flew singly either! I REALLY like the long leads too!

John,

Do you have any word on whether or not Quest is considering offering a bulk pack of these igniters? Just wondered if there was a reason for the poll or if you are trying to get support to show them that there is an interest.

Last week I talked to Nettie and requested that Quest consider bulk packing the Q2G2 igniters. Nettie passed my request on to Bill. I am only one person, so I thought I'd create a poll to see what the interest level in the rest of the hobby would be. I think the rocket community would support Quest doing bulk packs. I feel alot more at ease when I launch a cluster using the Q2G2's

I would buy them. With their low current requirement, they would make a good e-match replacement.

As a direct effort of the input here Quest has as of today posted a Bulk Pack of 24 Q2G2 Igniters at $16.00 . I want to thank you all for taking the time to post and do the poll. And a Big Two thumbs up to Quest:D Thanks Bill.
Rats!

I just got the package of motors I purchased from them. If they had done this last week, I could have saved some shipping and had a bunch more Q2G2's now. :(

...Now get online and buy a bunch...
Thanks! Just ordered 4 bulk packs @ 40% off - even with $10.50 (!) shipping, the total came to .51 per igniter. I'll be using these primarily for cluster launches.

I bought some of these during the Quest 40%-off sale.

Good igniters. :)

Glad you like them .

Was thinking of grabbing some but still lost after some research and value your opinion - do the 8" ones have any value igniting composites ? Or do you have a favorite application to utilize these for ?

Jeff says hi !
:confused2:
