Despite the fairly large for a private multi-purpose aircraft size helicopter, the aircraft has a rather light structure, which is the main cause of high maneuverability.

As a fundamental principle when creating a model helicopter Quest AVQ, used military helicopter NHI NH90, however, aircraft manufacturers have used only some of the individual design elements, and in general, Quest AVQ aircraft design is unique.
