  RotorFX Scam
Posted by: mosquito - 03-30-2018, 03:34 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

I would like to post another warning about RotorFX after hearing of another case where they have taken peoples money and are feigning sales of the Mosquito even though I fired them many years ago for their underhanded ways.  Please make sure anyone you know of that is interested in a Mosquito contacts myself or one of our legitimate dealers and does not deal with RotorFX.

Are there any ladies flying the Mosquito in any capacity?  I have talked to SEVERAL gents about flying skeeters but there have been, (to the best of my knowledge), no ladies flying these machines?

  Mixing Oil and Gas for MZ202
Posted by: swashplate - 03-28-2018, 01:15 PM - Forum: Fuel and Engine - Replies (7)

Hello fellow skeeter lovers!  2 strokers in particular.

Back in my early days (the 70's) of 2 stroke dirt bikes, I would mix gas and oil in a can (yes a metal can), pour the mix in the fuel tank (a metal fuel tank) of the dirt bike and away I'd go.  If things had sat for days/weeks I would always shake the fuel can to remix the oil/gas before pouring it into the fuel tank.  I do the same for my chainsaw.  Likewise, if the tank didn't need fuel, or I didn't have new gas/oil to pour in, I would shake the motorcycle side-to-side to "slosh" the mix together in the tank.  As I think I understand what I believe I have read - Premium gas weighs in at about 6.2 lbs. per gallon.  2 stroke oil weighs in at about 6.12 lbs. per gallon making the oil a tad lighter.  This means that over time (not sure the duration) the two will separate as the oil floats to the top.  (my facts and figures may be off a little)

Alrighty then - I can shake the plastic jug I have for the Mosquito.  I will be operating an XEL with a  5 gallon limit of "onboard" fuel.  What's the best way to "slosh" the fuel in the machine?  Do I gently work the tail boom around a 'lil' bit to mix the fuel?  I guess another possible way would be to attach a paint mixer to an old style hand crank auger drill, stick in in the fuel fill opening and give it a spin.  Sorry guys, no electric drills with flashing motor sparks at the opening of the fuel tank.  I don't ever want to be come an NTSB statistic but I would REALLY hate to become a statistic and not even be flying!

So, what do you other 2 stroke fellers do to remix the fuel in the tank(s)?  Can you remix in the machine?

  XE Rebuild
Posted by: Kellster1 - 03-25-2018, 01:53 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (5)

I recently acquired Kerry’s XEL (Lamborghini Orange). I’m sure the majority of you are familiar. I will be rebuilding as a XE. Anyone know how it was wrecked. Seller was vague. I’ll be needing several parts so a parts list & prices will be needed as well. I don’t know Kerry but from what I’ve seen in pics & vids, Quality,Pride,Humorous Personality. The Heli will be back in the.......Look Up In The Sky. Any info would be much appreciated. My brother who lives in Palm Springs has picked it up for me so I won’t be seeing it in person until I make the trek from SE Ohio in a couple of months. Hope to make the fly in at Trenton to check out some Skeeto’s.

  Inntec 800 reliability
Posted by: Sigi - 03-07-2018, 08:51 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (14)

Hi XE285-Owners,
can you tell me something about the reliability of the Inntec 800 in your Mosquito?
How many hours have you on it? 
Has there ever been any problems and if so, which ones?
I would be particularly interested in a comparison in terms of reliability with the Rotax 912/14, which I know very well. Can one expect a similar reliability of the Inntec 800 in the XE285? Answering this question will decide,whether to buy a MOSQUITO or not (and I have the XE285 in mind ).
Honestly: I am alarmed by the accident recently in Odessa!
Thank you for your answers.
