Transport Mosquito On What? - tedirelan - 08-03-2018

How do you transport your mosquito?  Does anyone have anything that encloses it? Thank you.

Tedirelan,

There are several owners with enclosed trailers. It takes a lot of worry out of long hauling your heli when it starts to rain. When I went to the fly-in this year I had to pull over for three hour because of a thunder storm. There are some trailer that are visible in a few of the fly-in videos but folks usually don't see them because they are too busy watching the helis. I have some pictures of mine here on the forum. Here is a link. I hope the helps to answer your question.

That is an awesome trailer - some great ideas for securing the heli and blades

    Thank you very much. That's exactly what I was after. I was hoping to fit an XEL in one. Could be tricky. This would be hailed all over the US.

In this configuration I made the round trip from Colorado to Trenton, FL. with no mishaps. The trailer towed well and my truck did a great job.

I went for semi enclosed (open at back). Trailer worked out very light and easy to handle. Some photos in my gallery. Good if you live in town/city and need to transport to a nearby airfield.
