  Hello and some Newb Questions
Posted by: Dick Campbell - 12-29-2017, 02:34 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

Greetings Mosquito World;

Just received my private helicopter add-on rating last month.  Aero Engineer, EAA member and long time aviator, so have been researching ultralight and home-built helos.

I can definitely see a Mosquito of some flavor in my future, and I am planning to drag my travel trailer to Florida for the Trenton Fly-In, and then on to Sun n Fun.  In scouring the web, and searches on this forum, I have a few questions.

1.  What is the relationship of Composite-FX to Innovator technologies?  Are they an authorized dealer or factory rep?

2.  What is the relationship of Rotor F/X to Innovator Technologies?  I found one thread from 2012 indicating that they had been fired?

3.  Innovator Technologies appears to only supply kits to be built by a home builder.  Whereas both Composite FX and Rotor F/X seem to offer fully built aircraft?  How can they do this for an experimental aircraft?  Do they have A/W certificates?

Appreciate your patience with these questions.  I am certainly interested in building an XE or XE 285, my reason for going to Trenton, but I will also be interested in acquiring an already built Mosquito.

Any Mosquito flyers in TX?

Waco, TX

As a firm believer in the real meaning of Christmas I thank God this season for his gift to us all.

Merry Christmas Mosquito owners and flyers and all other visitors to the forum.  May you have many hours of safe and fun flying in the coming year!

  Average TT for Mosquito Helicopters, Maintenance, Owners please answer.
Posted by: Radar - 12-18-2017, 03:37 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (5)

I am curious to know if Mosquitos have a high average total time, or if they are like some other exp. Helos with a low average total time...

Do you own one of those ? Would you consider doing regular 170 miles trip (lets say once a week) Do you need to put in alot of maintenance ?

How do you like your Mosquito  ?

Has anyone even seen a pic. on this site that shows a set of doors installed or at least the hinge and latch location? If you know of one I can eyeball I'd like to know about it. I'm just prepping mine and the instructions blow so bad in the manual, that I'd like to have a look before I start drilling holes in the cabin. I'm documenting mine with lots of photos so I can post them for anyone else that is interested. Thanks and stay safe!

  Hypothetical commercial application
Posted by: FlyingJhog - 12-06-2017, 03:42 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (5)

Does anyone know of any owners out there using their Mosquito for commercial ops?

I have always wondered about the possibility of it's use in power line patrol, frost protection, cherry drying ect..

It seems like the cost per hr would be so low that you could undercut the competition ...though range/endurance might be an issue..

Photo Trenton 2018 Fly-In, Get ready!

You all have an idea of what I am about to say. April will be here before you know it and if you don't start planning now you may miss another Mosquito Fly-In. It is such a great feeling to be around like minded people! I had the pleasure of meeting and putting names with faces to even more people on this forum as well as reconnecting with old friends. One of the best things is the ability to have a face to face chat and discuss things without typing! The Composite FX crew is comprised of a bunch of regular folks. It is a Mom and Pop operation and that is what makes it  so desirable to be around. There is a wealth of knowledge at this event and it flows freely.

As I stated once before, I have always dreamed of having a helicopter and I am one of the biggest cheerleaders for the Mosquito. I have already started preparing for the up coming fly-in because if I start to prepare early I always attend. Last year I was not able to take my heli due to lack of a trailer. That problem has been addressed as l have purchased an enclosed trailer that hopefully will also be my living quarters. So if you are wanting to go to the 2018 Fly-In start preparing NOW! It will only solidify your desire.

John or anyone else in the know, can you tell us what the status of the Swift is? From what I had last heard, intentions were to have it in the air by now. How close is that reality, and can you shed light on any holdups? Any news would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
