  Mz202 was sold to a guy in China. I can't get parts! Help!
Posted by: Jaredgrosvenor - 11-04-2017, 02:25 PM - Forum: Fuel and Engine - Replies (9)

Over the summer, Leon of compact radial engines sold everything to a guy in China(Gray Zhu). I have been trying to rebuild my MZ202 But I cannot get ahold of the new owner and Leon seems to be of no help. 

Where are people getting their parts from?  I need pretty much all of the gaskets and seals. I also need piston rings. 

Has Anyone else had any problems getting parts? Are there any other options as to where to get parts from? Any help is much appreciated.

looking for a simple build of helicopter rotor and mast head... total blade length between 10'-16'

ideally a person familiar with H2O2 jet drive tips

just need the rotor and drive for a prototype application... doesn't need to fly, just rotate up to flying speed in a fixed to ground stand... will pay for materials as needed and final payment upon final successful demonstration 

please respond with experience, location and approximate cost

Thanks...

  Training in the Kansas City area
Posted by: kenny craig - 10-31-2017, 07:59 PM - Forum: Flight training - Replies (2)

its amazing how hard it is to find training unless a person wants to go to a high end flight school that the minute you mention you want to fly a mosquito they act like your an alien with no brain, Kansas City is a horrible area to find rotary training. Looks like I will be doing some traveling if I ever want to fly my XET   Angry

Did anyone else have similar struggles when you mentioned transitioning into a mosquito

  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
Posted by: jb92563 - 09-14-2017, 10:14 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

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?
