I bought a pack of Quest 6-3 motors from my local store today. I flew
them in my VB24 Ex. Windless day, blue sky. Good flights in all. But I have
some minor gripes.
1. The recovery wadding is not as good as the Estes stuff. I used 3
squares and burned my***hole in the chute on the first flight of the day.
This was the about the 13th flight for the rocket. (a new record) For the
next two flights, I had to use 4 squares, no problems. On the fourth and
last flight, I used 3 squares of the Estes and no problems.
2. The labels SUCK!!! After the first flight , I pulled the motor out
of the adapter and the label stayed behind. What a gooey, sticky mess. Ugh..
And always trying to come off. Very poor, IMHO.
But what nice flights! No problem with the Tiger Tail 2 igniters. All
fights landed within 30ft of the pad. Even with these small things, I will
buy more Quest motors, and soon I will try some Quest kits.
