  vibrations
Posted by: customair - 10-03-2017, 02:37 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

Hello, I am a new mosquito xe285 owner. I am having trouble with rotor vibrations. I have rotor tip lights  and trim tabs, I have set the tracking with the lights at hover and in forward flight and it is very close to perfect in both. In a hover it is smooth but at 70+mph there is a dog house shake that is coming from the rotor. I have added and removed weight in the front and it gets worse when I add or remove weight from the front. It seems to be fairly smooth if I am slightly decending at 80-90mph but if I am trying to fly level or ascend it starts shaking. Any ideas?


Thought I would add this detail. The more collective I add the more shake there is. Thanks for the help.

  Ag Spray system for Mosquito
Posted by: TS Rupcich - 09-23-2017, 11:02 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

Good Day,

I'm a flying farmer in Saskatchewan and I'm in the process of purchasing a XE (thanks Darren and John) to "crop/fence check and chase livestock''.

I have spoken briefly with John U about the using the Mosquito to do spot spraying (5-10 gal for small weed/insect infestations, farm yards etc..).  Has anyone looked into buying/building/designing a spray system for the Mosquito?   While not adverse to spending some money on a gps flow control system, I'm not prepared to spend the kind of cash I did on the AG Nav for my S2-D. Perhaps based on high clearance guidance package and individual piston tips?  Worst case, go old school with gallon tips and working pressures.

I got some time this winter to do some leg work and would like to get a sense how much interest there would be from the Mosquito community in this.

Thoughts?

  Hurricane Irma vs Mosquito's

Just mirroring a comment from the Mosquito Facebook page.

How did the Mosquito factory fair with Hurricane Irma?

Hopefully just rain and not too nasty winds.

Did any of the Heli's get evacuated by owners just in case?

  MZ 301 exhaust
Posted by: Hannah - 09-06-2017, 09:53 AM - Forum: Fuel and Engine - Replies (1)

Hi all,

Urgent. Our local seller sold us a MZ 301 without manifold exhaust, and we DIY one.

It fits well, but resulted in oil leaking today. I guess it should be the imbalance pressure problem. 

However, we couldnt buy or get one locally. Neither do we have drawings or instruction for exhaust.

Sad

help me Sad

Many thanks for your reply in advance.

  Trade Your Mosquito for Rotorway?
Posted by: 67 N 20 - 08-29-2017, 04:19 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

I have a RW here with 14 hours on the air frame and components.
No damage history, all RW\parts, never rolled over.
lots and LOTS of upgrades.
A new 35 MM secondary.
But you would have to know the RW lingo and linage to notice them.
The engine developed problems and is at the shop for surgery.
Irt will take another couple thousand to fix it.
I will and am gladly going to pay the repairs.
It developed water leak between the wet liners and water jackets.
I have e a new improved cam for it.
New pistons , rings and ETC

I have decided I do  not need a two seater and a single seat would fit 
My needs just fine.

  Pilot Operating Handbook (POH)
Posted by: GSARMedic - 08-13-2017, 01:42 AM - Forum: Flight training - Replies (5)

Has anyone compiled a basic POH for the Mosquito XE line?

I would venture to guess that with most of the aircraft being home-built individual models that there would be variations in final weights and balance numbers, but is it safe to assume that, post flight testing of the XE models, that some sort of information was put together including weight and balance charts, performance envelopes, In Ground Effect and Out of GE performance charts?

My R-22 POH has safety procedures that may be standardized across many lightweight piston helicopters, but also has some more detailed/specific procedure set up guidlines, such as when entering a practice auto, it is preferred to be at 65KIAS (my CFI always said 70 knots) and at or above 500ft while maintaining main rotor RPM between 97% and 110%. I have the mantra "Down, Right, Roll, Aft, Bump", ingrained in my head. Drop the collective Down, simultaneously apply Right pedal, Roll off the throttle, pull the cyclic Aft to enter glide downdraft configuration, and finally Bump the collective to keep the main rotor from overspeeding.

I am interested in purchasing an XET in the near future, but I do not have any turbine experience and would want to read through the procedures that are specific to the operation of the turbine.
