  O-rings in fuel tanks of my air
Posted by: 77jbob - 05-03-2019, 01:54 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (9)

I’ve read the assembly manual but do not see a reason for these rings. I started to take one I found out but then noticed there was one in each tank. So I thought there might be a reason. Any ideas? The gaskets seemed to all be on the caps. [Image: f0b79af7c67d5532fd26d743378b3281.jpg]

  XEL for sale
Posted by: surjim11 - 04-30-2019, 04:44 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)


I'm selling  my recently completed XEL (Never flown). I have another opportunity that I'm pursuing so I need to grudgingly part with this ship. The XEL has a programmable belite electronics fuel computing and probe system., The MGL encoding aviation altimeter with serial output and airspeed indicator model ASX-2, The MGL Velocity TC-2 one to four channel thermocouple (EGT/CHT indicator., The MGL Dual Rotor/Engine Tachometer Model Rotor-1,. The TINY-TACH Model 2-A from Design Technology Inc. Optional doors. Optimate lithium battery from Tec-Mate, with special charger, The Pro Series 606, 60 Watt 6 outlet strobe system. A David Clark headset and mic set up with a portable nav/com. RCI pro, five point seat belts. Included is a light duty tandem trailer with steel ramps. Anchor for the tail boom and 2000 lb winch with wired remote control for one man loading. 
The ship also features a tuned exhaust for flying at higher altitudes. Collective friction control and wheel kit. 

As the ship was being built a factory REP. came out and corrected all the mistakes that I made. He made suggestions which I changed to improve the workmanship.

The ship will include the cost of  airfare  by the same factory  Rep.to come to your location to do a final inspection (after having been shipped )and its first flight if you live in one of the 48 contiguous states.

If you are a serious buyer and interested in owning a ship right away and not interested in building one, you can  email me  at surjim11@msn.com and I can answer any questions you may have and send several photos of the ship.   .Thanks, Jim

  XET Operating Limitations "Densely populated area"
Posted by: rotorlyfe - 04-08-2019, 07:22 PM - Forum: Registration and Licencing - Replies (2)

To the USA Mosquito owners, especially XET: Does EVERYBODY have on their PHASE 2 Operating Limitations item #5 "Except for takeoff and landings, this aircraft may not be operated over densely populated areas or in congested airways." ?

Would anyone be willing to please look at their specific tail number's PHASE 2 Operating Limitations and report back, pretty please?
I would like to know if there is any Mosquito out there that does NOT have this limitation, or if they ALL have it? If there is a Mosquito out there that doesn't have it, I would be very interested in getting mine removed as well. The DAR who signed mine is Earl A. McCarthy Jr. If the factory could chime in, that would be awesome! Wink

Are there any Experimental/homebuilt aircraft that DO NOT have OL #5?

Not here to debate to meaning of "densely populated area", I am going with the EAA website's explanation on that, and do not wish to get into the weeds on what that implies or doesn't imply. Only looking for answers to the above.

  Mosquito Basics
Posted by: Adeel184 - 04-07-2019, 04:41 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (7)

Hi All,

I am brand new here and have recently developed an interest in the mosquito helicopters but have no knowledge of the machines and all the processes that go along with buying and training etc.

Can someone please guide me as to whether a private pilot license is needed in order to buy and fly a mosquito helicopter?

  France: Café croissant at Bourg-en-Bresse Saturday 27 April
Posted by: Jacko - 04-05-2019, 08:29 PM - Forum: Flyin's - No Replies

The AFPM and FFPLUM are doing “café croissant” at Bourg (LFHS) on Saturday 27 April.
There’s no mountain rating needed for LFHS, but chance of a ride to Corlier or St Claude once we’ve demolished Bernard’s pastries and coffee.


The airfield LFHS is also home to Mosquito Europe, although it seems that they and the factory have fallen out with each other - which seems a pity considering the effort that Didier put in to getting the type accepted by the DGAC (French equivalent of FAA).

  Where does the electrical energy come from in the 285?
Posted by: Casey - 04-05-2019, 05:28 PM - Forum: Fuel and Engine - Replies (7)

Hey guys I had a question here, it seems like a real dumb one but darnnit I just can’t seem to find the answer! How does the Inntec(or Innovative I guess?) 800 generate its electrical power? There appears to be no obvious external alternator, and the wiring suggests something internal. So is it like an internal alternator? And what kind of current can it output?
