Welcome to the world of Micromaxx®
and the only Micromaxx products endorsed by Quest Aerospace,
the originators of the Micromaxx product line. If you are new to the Micromaxx line
or an established fan of these tiny flying models, we STILL "welcome you to the world
of Micromaxx", because even if you have been flying Micromaxx models for years, you
have never seen Micromaxx models the likes of what FlisKits will be producing. True
builders kits with the quality, innovation and support that you have come to know
and trust from the folks at FlisKits.
There have been rumbling; there have
been rumors; there have been hints and sneak peeks. It is now time to "spill
the beans", as it were!
of Quest Aerospace, FlisKits has been contemplating a small line of Micromaxx based kits
or, at the very least, a line of parts for the scratch builder.
Then in early 2005, Quest announced that the Spring '05 rollout of the new
Micromaxx line had been put on hold.
FlisKits became interested in what
Quest was up to as this could have an impact on any line FlisKits would announce.
Quest became interested in the depth of the FlisKits line and how serious FlisKits was
about its support.
This common interest
lead to some casual conversations between Bill Stine and Matt Costabile of Quest Aerospace
and Jim Flis and Brian McCarthy of FlisKits. As the
discussions continued two things became apparent. First,
Quest Aerospace wanted to move their R&D budget away from Micromaxx and toward their
Educational and Motor development projects. Second,
FlisKits had the unique set of talents and capabilities that would allow for the design
and creation of a successful and exciting new line of Micromaxx kits.
||As it came
to be, Quest has decided to discontinue their efforts with respect to the Micromaxx line
of kits (see
the Quest Qblog of 07/18/05) and to endorse the FlisKits line of Micromaxx
kits and products. Quest will still provide their line of Micromaxx motors to the
hobby community, however.
this decision and endorsement, FlisKits has made the decision to expand their initial
plans to include 4-5 exciting new
kits and a slew of new and exciting parts and accessories and, further, to accelerate
their release schedule to the early Fall time frame.
This series of events,
discussions and decisions is a clear example of Quest Aerospace's dedication to their
customers in that they would not discontinue this sought after line of kits until they had
secured a reliable solution for the many Micromaxx enthusiasts they have nurtured over the
this is an example of the dedication of FlisKits, Inc. to the growth and health of model
rocketry as well as the importance they place on the Micromaxx modeling community.

supplies, to be displayed on this site in the coming weeks.
