  Tall pilots
Posted by: Bernard - 06-08-2017, 01:03 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

Hi, I am "brand" new on this forum and my English is only so and so..
EU Belgian PPL , last years mostly R44 and JR 206.
Looking at the Mosquito XET turbine now, looks an quit impressive little helicopter.
First question I have is, how is a 6.4 ft tall guy like me fit in this machine?
R44 for me is better then the Jetranger for longer flights.
Any tall guys flying the XET here??
Thanks in advance for some info.
Bernard

  Balistic Recovery System
Posted by: joe1826 - 06-04-2017, 06:12 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

So I haven't taken the leap yet into buying one of these, mostly because I am overly concerned with safety.  I did look up all incidents on NTSB and was happy to see there were far fewer than Rotorway.  Even so, I don't think I would be comfortable with just autorotation and was researching BRS similar to what exist for fixed wing.  I stumbled on GRS  https://www.galaxysky.cz/gyro-amp-helicopters-s65-en 

It looks like they rigged up a mosquito with one of these and have mosquito specific instructions.  I was wondering if anyone has experience with anything like this or have heard of this company before.   If it works, it would go a long way toward easing my anxiety!

EDIT: adding a video of how it is supposed to work. I don't know if this is good marketing or if there is some legitimacy to this design. I'm hoping those of you who have more experience can shed some insight!

  Spammer Elimination on myBB systems
Posted by: jb92563 - 05-18-2017, 02:31 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Not sure who the webmaster is here but I'm sure they are as annoyed by that recurring Chinese spammer as the rest of us.

I have a suggestion on how you can block the entire domain qq.com that the spammer uses, to rid us of them no matter how many times their Bot tries to resubscribe.

This is where I found how to make the change for a myBB system like this website.
https://community.mybb.com/thread-88897.html

Its looks very easy and may take only a couple minutes to do.

Another common technique is not to Ban a user, because the Bot can detect that and simply open a new account, but rather just require their postings to be approved (And don't approve any).

I think the domain blocking is the simplest, least work solution for the admin though.

  Colorado Mosquito Air Force Drive-In
Posted by: FlyGuy - 05-13-2017, 04:18 AM - Forum: Flyin's - Replies (6)

            A great weekend has begun with a beautiful day. The almost official Colorado Mosquito Air force had their first get together. Mosquito Field Mechanic Mike Messex recruited to assist Tom Olson and  Jim Lynch to assist in the completion of their XELs and me with my fuel mapping and general inspection ( a fresh set of experienced eyes). I am just a regular guy but to have three helicopters in my garage with  like minded people working on them and loving every minute of it is unreal!

Day two starts tomorrow hopefully the weather will still be great and we will get another engine dialed in. This is good stuff!

I picked up a rebuilt Turbine that Dwight purchased for me at this year's (2017) fly-in but due to my current situation, have decided not to pursue building a Mosquito Helicopter at this time. This turbine was and still is in the box it came in and is available to be purchased for $20,000.
