  Merry Christmas Skeeters!
Posted by: mosquito - 12-25-2016, 08:24 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (6)

Merry Christmas fellow Mosquito Flyers!

  As a firm believer in the real meaning of Christmas first I thank God for who he sent us many years ago.

  I would like to thank all our customers for building the Mosquito helicopter into a fleet that now numbers 402!  I know we are not always as fast as you would like and some have had to wait longer than expected to receive their flying machines but we continue to try to improve both the Mosquito and our service.   With new developments currently in testing I hope to be able to provide new and exciting products in the near future while always trying to improve the existing fleet.

  So have a Merry Christmas and here's to a great new year!

  2017 Factory Fly-In
Posted by: FlyGuy - 12-22-2016, 06:30 PM - Forum: Flyin's - Replies (27)

Ok Guys,

With the end of the year just around the corner my mind starts to think about the Factory Fly-In
in Trenton! To some of you I may be jumping the gun but I have found that if I plan early, my
plan always seems to work out. I am sure John is about to post dates and information about it soon.
I have just started to look up airfares but have not ruled out driving (1,700 miles each way).

My first fly-in was 2009 as I wanted to just see this little heli and see what all the buzz was
about. I met another guy on the Forum and we ended up making plans on meeting and
splitting the cost of a room in Chiefland. My next on was 2012 after I moved back to the
Mainland and two months later I put down my deposit for "Myrtle" my 285. Unfortunately I 
will not be bringing her along on this trip. It will be great to see the old friends I made there
and meet new owners and other folks that are coming to get information and their first glimpse
of this neat machine.

If you haven't been to a factory fly-in, start planning now! There is a wealth of information to be had 
and some of the greatest folks that you will ever meet will be happy to answer questions. My thinking
is it will be held March 31st through April 2nd (usually the weekend before Sun n Fun).

Let's start this year off with the anticipation of a fantastic Factory Fly-In. Chime in and tell us if you
are planning on going, how you are getting there, and where you are planning on staying.
This is a perfect way meet like-minded rotor-heads and possibly cut expenses!

Time to get excited!

  Air vs other Models rotor size
Posted by: jb92563 - 12-20-2016, 09:08 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

I noticed that all the Mosquito Models have a 19.4' rotor diameter except for the Air which is 18'.

I was wondering what the reason is, and what impact this has on performance and auto-rotation?

I did read an old thread from HawkIP on rotor speed vs diameter, which does help understand some of the interactions but is not specific about the Mosquito.

My thoughts are that since the Air is lighter it just did not need the extra lift from the increased diameter and I'm thinking that it would be turning the main rotor blades at the same rpm as the others?

Perhaps shorter rotor diameter makes it more nimble as well?

  Improve 2 stroke performance and reliability at next rebuild
Posted by: jb92563 - 12-15-2016, 03:07 PM - Forum: Fuel and Engine - Replies (2)

I have used a few 2 stroke engines over the years on non Heli planes I fly/flew and came across this article that would apply to the Mosquito's 2 stroke engine.

The thing I like about this advice is that its an enhancement to the existing engine and not a really a change to any of the parts. Just adding a coating to the cooling fins and exhaust, piston balancing etc.

It should increase HP by reducing temps and overall improve the reliability of an existing already reliable power plant.

I'm not saying the entire article is 100% applicable but much of it is.

Something to consider if you are doing a rebuild of your 2 stroke engine and want to improve its operation/reliability with minor additional work.

(Link and same attached as a PDF in case the link stops working)

  Trying to find the XET in Wilmington DE
Posted by: Walker - 11-25-2016, 11:36 PM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Hey everyone, I'm past the tire kicking stage and trying to decide between the 285 and the XET. I saw there is an XET registered in Wilmington DE but no other info. The FAA has it registered to RR Heli Inc, at an address no where near an airport. I'm guessing it's a PO Box.

I plan to be in driving distance of Wilmington next week (visiting from Alaska). If anyone knows that owner would you mind putting me in contact with them? Thanks for the help.

Soon to be a Mosquito builder/owner,

  Cost of operation
Posted by: AerialMapper - 11-19-2016, 06:36 PM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

I am writing a technical paper that makes the case that the Mosquito XE285 would be an excellent option for aerial data collection.  To better make the case I need an estimate for fixed annual costs.  The more specifically the cost can be itemized the more convincing it will be (e.g. overhaul every some many years costs so much, storage costs so much, liability insurance costs so much, etc.).

I appreciate anyone willing to take the time to help.  Please specify if the information is from your personal experience or an estimate.
