    I just finished building my Quest Super Eagle :). I modified the motor mount so it can withstand the forces of an Aerotech motor :D. Don't worry... I wrote an EMRR review for it :).

    The way quest had the kit, the only thing holding the motor tube in the rocket was two plastic tabs. This was very weak, and I was afraid that the tabs would eventually melt from ejection charges, so I redesigned the motor mount. It still has a 18mm motor mount... but I was looking for a good D13 and D24 bird :). I might get another one and make it 24mm... or maybe 29mm.... hmmm :kill:

    The kit came with pre-colored parts, so I did not do any painting (just to cold for paint up here). :rolleyes:
