  Setting up your profile
Posted by: Daryl - 08-22-2018, 03:38 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

It was mentioned that it might be nice to have some instructions for setting up your user profile so others will know a little more about you when reading your posts.  You do not have to do this of course, and I recommend you don't provide too much personal information (no phone numbers or addresses).  For me, I use a pseudo birthday when online (identity theft is everywhere, unfortunately).

To get started, open your web browser in your computer and navigate to the Mosquito Forum - http://forum.mosquito-helicopter.info/  if you are not already logged in, please do that now.   Sorry, the images don't show full size so you'll have to click on them to see them better.

You should land on your Portal Page, which look something like this.  To edit your profile, click on the "User CP" link found in the upper left corner (circled here)  
   


You should now have a screen similar to this. Click on the "Edit Profile" link to access your personal information page:
   

Here you can enter your birthday (or close approximation) and choose to show the date or just your age, If you own a Mosquito, you can enter your machine's details.  Please enter your location so others will know where are are located.  There's also a place to write a short narrative about yourself - include the who-what-when-where-why of your connection to the Mosquito.  Be sure to click on the "Update Profile" button at the bottom of the page to save your changes
   

You can also add your Avatar, the little photo icon next to your User name by clicking the "Change Avatar" link

Let me know if you have any questions.

  Request to members
Posted by: FlyGuy - 08-19-2018, 03:16 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (11)

Mosquito Nation,

Over the past few months we have noticed and seen a few things that have been lacking in the forum. We have seen too many folks join our forum and proceed to post "spam" threads throughout all forum topics except owner/builder specific topics. I have also noticed that there are  a number of owners that do not have the wing by there name which would give owner/builders access to Owners Manuals, ADs, and other owner privileges that can not be accessed without them. I believe this is the reason for the rash of questions that every owner/builder should know but may not have the access that they need. 

I would like to request a few things from you members that will help the Admin. of this Forum to get things ironed out, make it easier to get rid of the spammers more quickly, and help members with questions:

  1. Put information in your profile.
      In many cases there is no information in this area. This lets them and other members know your name, where you are located, and thus makes it easier to find support in your area or even get a chance to see a Mosquito in person. I so dislike calling someone "sdveck25". There is also a Mosquito Owners Map but because very few of our membership supply name, location, and serial number the information is incomplete and that is what all of you want, incomplete information! That serial number is very important. By including it in your profile the wing can be added to your name when all this recent chaos settles.

  2. Lack of participation by many members has come to an all time high. I look at some posts and see that it has been viewed   47 times and yet no one replies to it! Try to help members with questions. I remember when I joined the forum and asked a question. I was great to get a response with information that was usable. But lately many members want information bout will not help others. I have tried to spread information that I have learned but I am starting to draw the like on questions that already have threads or ones that members haven't tried to research at all (did you take training, how much fuel does it hold, or any other question that can easily be answered with the slightest amount of effort). If a person is too lazy to do any research I don't know if I want them flying around in a machine that can kill them or others.

I hope you will help to keep the forum on track and moving forward. Be safe.

Michael

  bent landing gear
Posted by: johngheli - 08-09-2018, 09:19 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (8)

First post! Pulled the trigger and bought a 60 hour XE, went out and got it, trailered to its new home late July.  So heli had just had it's annual done, but I have discovered a few things I need to address.  Like, well the previous owner had one or two rough landings and bent the landing support struts.  Heli now leans to the left 2 or 3 degrees. It was bad enough to require repairs. The repair looks like a downgrade from original design.  Support cables were replaced with like a local hardware fix.  Wire rope wrapped around post eyelets and clamped down without any protection from abrasion at eyelet. The mounting posts are seriously bent.  Also, when airborne one cable becomes loose and has major oscillation.  It's flexing like 6 or 8 inches in the middle.  Bad news.

So, I decided to do the right thing and replace entire assembly. Built the assembly jig.  E-mailed Composite FX with order, going on 2 weeks now, and haven't gotten a response.  Made a couple of calls and (I think it was Dwight I talked to), said to copy him and he'd check on it.  Well so far no response. 

So here's the question, has anyone tried to straighten these tubes?  I can get hardware from Wicks or somewhere, but not the strut tubes.  If they were straightened would they be strong enough?  

Really wanting to fly.  Didn't expect such poor customer support.
