Quest Resources are returning!

When we changed our website in July 2009 there were several features that did not make the conversion. As time has gone along we have been updating the information to the new format.

If you check out the Quest Resources in the left-hand column you will see that the various features have returned. We are hoping to have all of these resources back by the end of the year.

If there is a resource that you need and it has not been placed on the website yet, please email us at: and we will email you the item your are looking for.

In addition if there is a resource that you have not seen on our website and you would like for us to provide it, please email the same address and we will see if it can be done.

Quest - Paypal - New Products

Things have been busy at Quest. As many of you have noticed we have a new look on our website. The new website is easier to navigate. There are a few features that customers have been looking for that are missing. We are in the process of changing those pages to be more user friendly. Also some of the missing features are available in the "more info" of the product. An example: Starhawk value pack has the instructions, student worksheet & the flight diagram towards the end of the page.
If you can't find what you are looking for contact our customer service at or 1-800-858-7302

We are happy to announce that
Quest now accepts Paypal!

Rubber Band Powered Glider - Brings Back Memories!

Thank you Nettie!

My order arrived yesterday [Mon]. I was not expecting it for another week. Only 4 days, the Post Office must be getting better, and everything was intact. I've already began assembling the Micro Maxx and am awaiting a nice day to fly. I am used to flying very large rockets to extreme altitudes - this will be a real switch. Instead of loading the truck with all my gear and driving to the club site for the weekend, now I can get my "fix" right in the back yard.

I was pleasantly surprised with the little extra you threw in. It has already flown up and down the hallway a couple of times. I didn't know they made them anymore.

That little rubber band airplane brought back many memories of my childhood. When I was 6 my grandmother gave me one of those for my birthday, they cost a whopping 50 cents, back in 1958, I had been eyeing one in the 5 and Dime store [Woolworths] for months, begging for one every time I visited Grandma. She lived right behind the fire station. When I would come visit on weekends, I would go over to the station house and polish the brass on the old antique fire truck, for which the firemen would give me a nickel, and then let me slide down the pole as much as I wanted. In those days a nickel would buy a lot of penny candy. [several pieces for a penny!] But I was saving my nickels for that airplane! Turns out, one of the fireman walked over to her house one day and suggested that if she wanted to make a little boy happy on his birthday that would be the thing to get me.
It was the first present opened, after that, the others didn't matter. I was out the door playing with it in the firehouse yard. They had to forcibly come and get me to go back inside and open the rest of my presents. I could not tell you what any of the others were, but I shall always remember that little toy airplane. As they say in the old time movies “Thanks for the memories!”
