  FAA Rotor Conference

Howdy Rotorheads,

Got this information from FAASafety.gov and thought some of you might want to participate seeing how us "rotor guys don't get much attention from the FAA.

Take care and Fly Safe!


2020 Rotorcraft Safety Conference Coming to a Computer Near You

The FAA will host the 2020 FAA International Rotorcraft Safety Conference virtually from October 27-29. The conference will include presentations geared for pilots, mechanics, and the entire helicopter community. There is no cost to attend. For more information, including the agenda, speakers list, and registration link, go to www.faahelisafety.org.

  Newly completed Mosquito XE 285

I live in Austin, TX.  Here is a photo of my new Mosquito.  I built it in my garage over a period of about a year and a half while also working full time.  I recently completed the first hover flight of this helicopter.  I really appreciate the advise and help I received from Norbert, Mike Messex, and Dick Campbell!

  ceramic painting exhaust system

Has any person painted their exhaust system using ceramic paint, on the Mosquito range. Have seen exhausts on gyrocopters done and the results are great.   Regards  Darrell.

  Partial build kits available?
Posted by: jb92563 - 07-21-2020, 11:29 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

I was wondering if partial build kits are still available?

I know of someone selling their airframe kit which seems to be just the fiberglass airframe and skids and some hardware.

I was wondering what it would cost to get the rest of the kits so I could complete the build?

The website order form only has a full kit option.

I am taking delivery of an XE-285 tomorrow at Bankstown Airport, NSW Australia. This is a new machine, I have purchased from someone else who who did the build. I am not mechanically minded and other than topping up with fuel and oil will have someone else do any maintenance work. I understand that there is some work required at 500hrs. Other than this can anyone please advise how much regular maintenance will be required? Naturally I wish to ensure that it is maintained correctly.

I would also like to hear if there are any other Mosquito owners in NSW, Australia.

Many thanks

Question Engine Weights
Posted by: Job_CF - 06-02-2020, 06:59 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

Hi all
Could someone tell me the installed weights of MZ202, Innovative/Inntec 800, and Solar T62-T2A engines?
I am looking into 4-stroke alternatives such as the Viking 90, conversions of the Yamaha RX1 (YG4), Apex (YG4i) EFI and the Phazer (YG2)
