  SWIFT and Air Update
Posted by: jessica.warren - 12-13-2018, 01:06 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

After careful business considerations, Composite-FX has decided to discontinue the manufacturing of the Mosquito Air and postpone the development on the SWIFT to focus our efforts on other projects.  The SWIFT will be released at a later date.  We will continue to manufacture the XE model helicopters and support the Mosquito Air.  We look forward to the future with other exciting ongoing projects and can’t wait to show you what we have been working on.  We appreciate your loyalty and support during this change.

Things have been a little quiet around here, just thought I'd share that I was messing around with our laser engraver at work, and I made me a sweet new Mosi clipboard for doing field service work  Big Grin

I would like to take this opportunity to tell the Composite-FX family about a new addition to our organization. Over the years of growth in our company we have come to the realization our marketing needs have outgrown our abilities to keep up with the duties required to do it properly. 
         I have always been a believer in picking the best personnel possible to complete the task at hand. So once the decision was made to hire some help, the first person that came to mind was our new marketing director Jessica Warren. 
         I have known Jessica for about 10 years and have always been impressed with her marketing abilities and knowledge. Jessica has several years of experience in rotor-wing marketing so she is not beginner at it. Over the next few weeks Jessica will be converting a lot of the digital media over and up dating information on them as well as coordinating fly-ins and air shows.
                 We are looking forward to working with Jessica and believe our customers will see her as a valuable asset to the company as well.

  Mz202 starter
Posted by: heliav8r - 11-30-2018, 03:29 PM - Forum: Fuel and Engine - Replies (1)

If someone out there has the machining tool or contact to machine an adapter to use an inexpensive, readily available starter for the MZ202, I am sure there will be a lot of us ready to buy the adapter.
It is very expensive ordering the starter from Italy and ordering replacement brushes.

lors de mon dernier vol, en montée initiale, il y a eu comme un choc: "bang", mise en autorotation et poser sans problème.
le moteur fonctionne bien, aucun bruit anormal, pas de monté en température.
Je vérifie l'ensemble de l'hélico : pas de courroie cassé, ventilo ok, poutre de queue Ok, accouplement OK, gear box Ok, rotor et pales Ok, RAC Ok. Je n'identifie pas le problème. je décolle  50 cm et retourne au hangar tout doucement. tout semble normal.

j'ai probablement tapé un oiseau=> balade à pied, j'inspecte la piste en long et en large, trouve effectivement quelques plumes mais rien de significatif.

ce "Bang" n'est donc pas identifié. Plus question de partir en vol temps que l’incertitude existe Huh donc mise en maintenance

Déterminé, le lendemain je commence par une visite pré-vol de la machine et trouve le problème. Sad
Plus de roue libre. lorsque habituellement elle tourne libre à la main, plus moyen. j'entraine le rotor dans les deux sens.
je suis bon pour changer Les roulements CSK-30-PP-2RS-C. 
85 heures de vol,   Smile     je vais donc profité de cet hiver pour démonter, inspecter toute la machine, remplacer l'ensemble des roulements et rotules.

bon vol à tous.
