I have just sent a request for 10 hours of flight training to a heicopter school in Whitecourt, Alberta. Canada. I explained why I wanted 10 hrs only and what I was going to do with it when it becomes legal. Their answer will be very interesting, I hope, and I will pass it along on the forum when I recieve it.

  Is the Mosquito cleared for city travel.
Posted by: Rico - 04-22-2006, 07:58 AM - Forum: Flight training - Replies (1)

Hello. I saw the Mosquito on the Discovery Channel.

Can you fly the Mosquito in the city? And how much fuel does it use? (I live in Canada.)

How long does it take a beginner to learn how to fly this thing? And how are you taught?

Thanks!

  Oregon area Mosquito?

Hi,
I'm very interested in the Mosquito but would like to actually see one before buying one.
I live in Grants Pass, Oregon. It's in Southern Oregon, just north of California.
Does anyone know of a nearby Mosquito by chance?
I often travel to Portland, Oregon as well.
Thanks in advance to anyone with any information!

  Info Pack
Posted by: seabillco - 04-17-2006, 02:25 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (5)

Hi,
I recently purchased, received and reviewed the DVD Info Pack and enclosed materials on the Mosquito and was disappointed that it contained very little useful substantive information.
I had several questions that weren't addressed in the packet. For example:
1. What are the differences between the XEL (floats) as opposed to the XE (no floats)? Specifically, what are the floats made of, what do they weigh, how do they attach, how long does it take to attach/detach them, etc. Also, does the XEL really come with only a 5 gallon fuel tank? If so, what if someone has a helicopter rating AND wants the XEL (to land on water)? This person doesn't care about the ultralight rule limiting fuel to only 5 gallons and probably would like the extra fuel. Can you get the XEL with the 12 gallon tanks as is standard on the XE?
I think this float/no float issue is important because, in the US, one can fly the XEL without a pilot's license but this is not true of the XE. As a result, many people will probably opt for the XEL. It's hard to make that decision intelligently if you don't know the differences.
The DVD was a perfect place to highlight the differences and show someone installing the floats and using them on the XEL. Sadly, this was lacking.
2. How do you move the Mosquito variants on the ground? Is there some optional dolly you can buy (as with an R-22)? There was no information about ground operations or storage.
3. What does the factory look like? The DVD is the perfect way to show the potential buyer the facilities and people that make the components that keep his butt in the air. I would like to tour the plant but it's not practical to go there. I was really hoping the DVD would cover it. Sadly, the DVD didn't even touch this topic. Same for the engine plant.
4. What are the options for factory assembly, painting, etc. The DVD and enclosed materials don't even mention this option. I was hoping to learn the benefits of factory assembly as well as exactly how this is done, the painting options, crating methods, shipping methods, time periods, etc., etc.
5. Close up shots of the cyclic, collective and other essential moving parts would have been nice. Sadly, the DVD is just 20 minutes of footage of a couple of Mosquitoes flying around a field. I was hoping to see video of the crucial controls up close and learn a little about the unique design aspects.
6. The paper documentation in the package consists of 4 pages of "not to scale" line drawings. There does not appear to be even one sample page from the construction manual. 3 of the drawings are just top or side views of the chopper. I was hoping the kit would include some sample pages from the construction manual so I could get a feel for the quality of this crucial aspect of the kit.
7. What does the future hold? There is no mention in any of the materials about the 4 stroke engine, turbine progress, a 2 place kit, etc., etc. It would help to know what the company is planning to have some sense that early adopters won't be left out if they want to upgrade.
8. Sadly, the Info Pack had much less information than the web site. The Discovery Channel video on the web is much better than the DVD in the packet. (Surprisingly, the DVD doesn't include the Discovery Channel video. It would be nice to have all the video on one medium.) Also, the Info Pack did not include a reprint of the various magazine articles that have reviewed the Mosquito. You can read some of them on the web but, again, you're better off spending time on the web site than spending $20 on the packet.
Overall, the DVD packet was a major disappointment and was simply not worth the time or the money I spent on it. Sadly, the Info Pack didn't make my decision to spend nearly $30,000 any easier. I'm still wondering about a lot of things...
I hope my comments help.
