Just finished a Quest X-30 kit and plan to fly it soon. I noticed it came with 2 18" parachutes and was wondering if anyone had any experience with it. The model doesn't seem that heavy to need 2 parachutes and I hate chasing these things. The winds are typically 5-10 mph so it hard to find a day where I can fly this time of year.

X 30 is not the best flying model quest has made. i would swap out the quest parachutes, as they are hard to cramp both in without them setting. i would go for a single 18 inch chute

oh really... Do I head to do a heads-up 1st flight? I think I will stick with the 1 18" 'chute.

I have flown several of the X-30s several times... All have been picture perfect flights. I believe the model comes with 14"-15" not 18" parachutes so if you are going to go with only one, make sure you have a full 18" of parachute.

C6-3 off of a 4 foot long steel launch rod is best. If you have a standard launch rod (usually 30 inches) then make sure therre is no wind.

You can also use the Aerotech Valuerockets D10 motor.
