This is the first I've heard of this.

any info on it
Can anyone tell what engine that is?
the engine is the one on the xe285...
I am wondering about all the modifications needed to make it a two passenger. Changing the engine is only one part of the equation. I would think a blade change is also needed. Wider skids to go along with the new body, how much weight does that add?

Hello Michael,

Quelqu'un a-t-il pesé réellement son mosquito XE ou XE 285 ?
Moi je l'ai fait avec des balances très précises (utilisées pour la compétition Karting et Automobile).

Hello Michael,

Someone he really weighed its Mosquito XE and XE 285?
I did it with very precise balance ( used for racing  Karting and Autmobile).

Well, I think I noticed at the factory a rather robust gross weight on the 285 powered agg ship, with engine speed of 7,000rpm. We know the engine is loafing in our configuration, and capable of so much more. Sure looks like the firewall forward part of the swift to me, attached to a modified air frame.
How am I doing factory???

Its called the Air2. I designed it about 3 years ago as a European ultralight. They have completely different regulations there than in the US. It utilizes the front and top of the Swift as a shell but the structural airframe, controls, running gear and rotors are all a growth version of the Air. It is currently being powered by a sped up version of the Inntec 800 motor to produce 120 hp but Didier is currently struggling with the fuel map at that speed.
So, did I win the prize???
Could be registered experimental here. How about keeping us up to date on this?
Would like to see one completed in Trenton sometime.
