HI GUYS well I looked at the mosquito helicopter at the mentone pra fly-in last week. Its a very good looking helicopter.seen it fly.. that 2 stroke that they use also runs very high rpm like the ...........old mini 500...looks like a good design tho .but the engine i think is going to be a maintenance hog...some of the components look a little cheap.. for what you would have in this little bird I don't believe its worth it...brantly is still the best for the money....

I saw my first mosquito on the back of a trailer at a truck stop in FL a few years back. The new owner seemed pleased and had just finished his training I think in Ocala, FL. His I believe was an experimental cat.. If I remember correctly the only difference between his and the ultralite, was the fuel tank, and the floats.
I don't know if you have to have a current medical to fly one, but the Ultralite might appeal to someone who has lost their's.
Your right, for the money you could buy a nice Brantly.

HI would you like to own one.the mosquito might be OK for some one that has no medical.it was just something to think abought in future whether to own one or not. I don't think its for me.living in P.A. having a good helicopter is a must for me...there lots of hills trees unlike other states that the flat lands where every place is a landing pad....thanks for your input....tom

I might want one some day, you never know. Right now like you, I enjoy flying my certificated standard catagory helicopter. Here in the hills of middle TN it is a comfort to know that a lot of work, engineering and testing went on prior to attaching that ID plate. Now that I have recently turned 60 I know at some point I may not pass a medical. Without any helicopters in the LSA catagory, an ultralite may be my only choice. I always try to keep an eye out for the future.
