  Progress Report?
Posted by: Dave R. - 11-09-2006, 05:14 AM - Forum: Fuel and Engine - Replies (4)

How about a progress report on alternative engine development? Also, have you considered the available fuel injection for the MZ202? What kind of lead time do you project for full kit availabiity (XE)? Thanks,

  Mosquito #2
Posted by: grettonma - 11-07-2006, 10:34 AM - Forum: Flight training - Replies (3)

Good morning fellow rotor heads.
Been flying Mosquito #2 for a few years now.
The only real problem I have had is when I push it out for a flight the ramp gets crowded with pilots and looky loos.
They do tend to get in the way. But what a price to pay for notoriety.
I tend to stay at the airport (SEE) and hover taxi with all of the R-22's and 44's.
We also have all the tv newscopters (Bell 206', 212's) and the ASTREA (Sheriff's huey's) unit based here so there is never a shortage of helo's in the air at any given time. But the Mosquito is the one that always gets the attention. Thanks John. A great design and very reliable.

Being a controlled field I fly with a hand held transceiver strapped to my leg and wired into my helmet. Looks goofy but it sorta keeps me legal. Normally I have to land and reduce rotor speed to even hear the tower. Working on that though. A new device will seal the ears and improve the clarity without killing my hearing.

Gotta get to work. Thanks again John. Great job!

  production??...
Posted by: James - 10-30-2006, 07:31 PM - Forum: Pricing - Replies (3)

hi... i was looking thru the pricing details, and i remember seeing a specific section that mentions a smaller deposit for production? instead of assuming i'd rather ask to be sure, what exactly does this mean?


Production may be subscribed to by requesting an application and returning it with a deposit of US$4,000.00 for the Frame Kit or US$8,000.00 for the full kit

thanks

  HORIZONTAL STAB NEEDED WITH FLOATS?
Posted by: GASMAN - 10-30-2006, 07:06 PM - Forum: Performance - Replies (3)

John,
You are the only guy I'm aware of that has flown the XEL. As I look close at the photos, I actually see a small horizontal stab. The drawings in my build package don't show this even on the float view for the XEL.

It seems to me the stab is necessary due to the drag created by the floats and a pitch down tendancy due to the extra drag.

If it is a requirement, there is nothing addressing this in the pricing except that the XEL is $1000 more than the XE.

Is the stab, therefore, part of the float package?

Thanks,
Eddy

  saftey questions
Posted by: Ericcme - 10-23-2006, 12:56 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

I noticed that the mosquito does not have any sort of stabalizors for any axis. I would assume this would make things a little scary in the event of a tail rotor failure, depending on your speed. It seems like it might handle well in forward flight, granted the tail rotor doesn't spin off into the main rotor (A concern for any size helicopter), but when you level off for the run on landing is when the weight will shift and no longer want to keep the nose in front of you. Will we see maybe an aftermarket stabalizer? What are your thoughts on this issue.

Second question...
I noticed that some ultralight aircraft manufacturers structurally test their aircraft/rotorcraft with torque meters to make sure components are not reaching their stress limits. From an engineering stand point, this is important in assuring that finite analysis is close to actual stress and strain predictions. What forms of analysis (Mathmatical and structural testing)were performed on this product to assure structural stability when exposed to long term static and short term dynamic loading?

Sorry for the long post! I'm a first year composite materials engineering student, and am excited to someday own an XEL helicopter and see this company grow safely!
