Just got back from the first few hours of setting up our booths at the AMA expo. AMA had boxes of fresh Starhawks delivered. I opened one to see if anything changed.

No Astra Book in the one bag I opened, but there was a very colorful card sized slip encouraging a visit to the Quest website. Since there are so many resources on their website, this is probably a wise move.

Nose cone was once again of a decent weight to provide additional stability. For a while, there were some that were a bit on the thin and lightweight side - they cracked easy and would accasionally not fly so good with a B motor. We reported our observations to Quest and they apparently made the necessary improvements.

The new cones appear to be just about twice the weight of the previous.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!
