Default Quest Falcon kit

I noticed on the Quest website that there is a new Falcon kit with a new livery. Canít seem to find it anywhere though. Has anyone seen this kit for sale anywhere?

I purchased the revised Falcon kit direct from Quest several months ago.

I picked one up at a HobbyTown USA a couple months ago. Built it, launched 3 times, D22-7, E26-7, D22-7. The last flight was never seen coming down. It's an improvement over the old kit, but the cool looking decals were the best part. Though I got them on OK, the vinyl they're made of is really too stiff. The included 18-24mm adapter doesn't work if built to the instructions, and has the soft yellow 18mm motor tube, but I didn't expect to use it anyway. The chute material is improved, less stiff than the old material, but the included shock cord is way too short. And I really wish the fin can was white instead of yellow, could've got away with no painting if it was white.

Anyhow, it flies nicely on the 24mm Q-Jets.

I just finished up the Quest Falcon build on my blog:
http://modelrocketbuilding.blogspot...abel/Q%20Falcon

I address a concern about the stickers and how to fit them around a
molded "rod" at the fin root edge.

The 18mm engine mount should be made with the centering rings at the
ends of the motor mount tube. The lower ring would need a notch cut out
to allow engine hook flex.
