We really appreciate the time you took to get pictures and videos.

Its nice for those of us that could not come, to see what we missed.

I like the large format of the pics so you can really get a nice close look at the details.

Thanks so Much!

Good job Robert! I loaded "phone video" to the FB page. Hopefully by the end of the week I will have the GoPro videos edited. Phillip shot a lot of footage also and hopefully has it edited in a couple weeks.

By the way, nice meeting you!

Yes it was great meeting you too. I had a great time in Trenton, met a bunch of wonderful people and, most importantly, got lots and lots of VERY good information. I hope to see you and everyone else next year when I fly my mosquito.

Until then, Michael, stay warm.

What sort of questions did you get answered or details about at the Fly-in?
Did you hear or have any, "I didn't know that, but its quite important" moments?

I find that many times other folks seek answers to questions I would not have thought of and find the info very useful.

I think its a case of not knowing what you dont know and the more you get into it, the more questions you would have.
Once you know more then you can start asking more specific and detailed questions.

And all of this is the perfect reason to attend the next flyin. 

My goal is to get my aircraft (Grob 109) sold by then and be in a position to place the order for an XEL kit.

One of my questions was about the carburetors.  I have been told by some to replace the Mikuni carbs that came with the older style MZ202 engine. So I asked, "Why are the Mikuni carbs so bad?  One individual told me to jet them correctly and the carbs are fine.  The consensus of the group that I was talking to was that if an engine isn't set up right - it won't run right.  I got the impression that the jetting of the carb kinda centers around the altitude you will be hovering at before flying.  AND, if you plan to travel between areas of different altitudes - cary all the jets you will need.

Another question was about - what is meant by "unloading the main rotors"? (that's a bad thing)

And another question came out from that answer - "How do I avoid unloading the rotor system?"

I also picked up some information about trailering the heli for road trips on an open trailer.

Many more questions were asked but I can't remember them all, sorry.  I'm pretty sure that the questions that I can't remember were most likely ones that I thought I already knew the answer to but wasn't quite sure.

No, everyone was VERY knowlegeable.

Good luck with your sale.  Hope to see you next year.

I just wish the darned camera would stay in focus. Sony DSC-H300. No manual focus, I'm at the mercy of the auto focus - yuk.

Thanks Michael!  Looks like you put several up on the Facebook page - very nice videos.  I know you had the GoPro running but what was the other camera that you were using.  That camera shot some GREAT video!

Hmmmm, Mosquito Ag-Striker spraying for Mosquito's?  

I guess the crop dusters days are numbered.
Now they just bring their Mosquito in a trailer, program it for the field and sit back and sip a beer while it does its thing.  

Technology is cool and all but where is the fun in that!

They could have at least made it dual mode so a pilot could still fly it manually on occasion.
