Hello everybody, thats my first post. This helicopter is really amazing !!!

Which are the worst weather conditions that the Mosquito can fly ?

I dont know if this helicopter can fly with light rain. If so, there is some protection for the blades, I mean a plastic cover or something like that ?



P.D. Sorry for my english

  Price slashed on the "Mosquito Giveaway"
Posted by: Operation - 09-10-2006, 06:28 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

Great News,

The cost to enter has been slashed in half for the "Mosquito Giveaway".

You can now enter into the draw for AU$50 - that equals approx US$37.00

If you already owned a "Tile", or a block of "Tiles", you are in luck because we have given you a 1 for 1 deal (so if you owned 1, you will now have 2, the second has been placed randomly by the system). That doubles your chance of winning straight away.

We hope somebody will be in the pilot's seat sooner rather than later.


Good luck with your Tiles.

  great to read about all the training
Posted by: dsandrus21 - 09-07-2006, 09:52 PM - Forum: Flight training - No Replies

Hey guys,
Lots of fun to read about all the training. Just finished up my instr. and CFII here in St George Utah. Did all my training in 22s and 44s. i agree that the 22 is a touchy ship, but here in Utah only one school has Schw. There was a huge price diff. also. I've been lucky enough to fly a MD500 and a few hours in a Huey and after flying 22s, both were incredibly easy to fly. Just a hell of a lot bigger and heavier, which leads to a lot more stable. Good luck with training, I'll be watching the posts.

  builders needing help
Posted by: warespower - 09-03-2006, 05:55 PM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

I'm a Continental Airlines tech with 10 years sheetmetal exp and 9 years heavy check exp in Houston I'm planning on buying the XE. I'm looking for someone close to help build one to see if I like its construction .

Today, I stopped procrastinating and scheduled some flight training starting tommorrow. I'll be flying in a Hughes 300c at Helicopter Adventures Inc. in Titusville , Florida. The school has over 20 Hughes 300c's, several R22's, and a Jet Ranger. The school is busy 7 days a week and has helis in the air continuously. I've known the company owner for several years and have always been impressed with the operation, safety record, and maintenance.

The cost for dual is $245/hour. Right now, I plan to train until I solo.

Really looking forward to the experience....YEAH BABY!

  Build Level of Difficulty
Posted by: c141ip - 08-24-2006, 12:47 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)


I know the plans must have a procedure outlined for balancing the main rotor and tail rotor blades, but just curious what that procedure is? Does it require purchase of special equipment, or is it less difficult than that. Could you also briefly describe the method for ensuring proper alignment of the tail rotor drive shaft, techniques etc? These, at least in my mind, seem as though they would be the most demanding parts of the construction process.

I think I have read most of the posts on the site to avoid asking questions that have already been answered. I am a helicopter pilot interested in the Mosquito if I can convince myself that I could use it regularly. From other posts I have gotten the following impressions:

Autorotations are acceptable
Regular maintenance consists of pre- and postflights, grease every 10 hours, major overhaul at 500.

My questions:

Specs indicate a cruise speed of 70-75. Is that realistic?
How much unscheduled maintenance is typically required?
Has any Mosquito exceeded 200 hours yet?
Is anyone using one on a daily or near daily basis?
Where is the nearest place that I could go to see one and watch it fly?

I think I am leaning toward an experimental "air" but I will look at the XE as well.
