New Quest looks a lot like the old Quest based on a peek at the website. I didn't hate old Quest, but there was not a whole lot I'd have been tempted to gush over.

And having done so I can say I learned something today, thanks again. I tend to judge the present offerings by browsing the website (there is no "parts", "tubes" or "cones" categories - I really can find them only through the search function) and the past offerings by reading the old catalogs (very few seem to be available).

I built the Courier and the Magnum Sport Loader egg lofters), both of which were decent, but nothing at present looks very interesting to me.

I likely will buy (via AC Supply) and build the Quest semi-scale Nike Ram later this year, and see how nearly the Quest parts compare to the correct ones from Semroc. I'd love to be able to get the "classic" motors from AC Supply as well.

So yeah I agree this is a good development.

Those motors... otherwise... same old crap. But I'm not looking at the kits.

You had me worried.
