The ultralight Mosquito is one of the worlds lightest manned Helicopters that was designed and developed over 10 years to deliver performance, relability and easy of flight. The original prototype has been flying since 1994 and meets the ultralight Part 103 requirements.
 
The Mosquito frame is made up of Aircraft Grade 6061-T6 aluminum and utilises a simple triangulated structure with straight tubing throughout to maximize strength, reduce weight and simplify construction. The additional use of a Carbon Fibre tail boom and support struts adds to the Mosquito's structural ridgidity.The Mosquito's tripod legs are equiped with small skid pads to help reduce lateral movement during engine run-up to lift off stage. Ground handling wheels are also available to easy ground transport.
 
The Mosquito is powered by Compact Radial Engine's - MZ202, 60-hp, a two cycle, two cylinder engine. This engine empolyes Reed Induction which yields a very flat torque curve ensuring power is delivered constantly over the required operating range. The MZ202 also has a lower operating speed of 6000 rpm resulting in less stress on the engine and improving reliability. The complete engine package only weighs 69 pounds and comes with a 180-watt altenator that provides power to run the electrical system which also features and an electric start system.

The primary reduction is bolted directly to the engine. A centrifugal clutch on the engine crankshaft permits startup of the engine without the load of the rotor. Power is transmitted from the clutch to the driven pulley of the reduction through an HTD cog belt. The driven pulley houses the sprage clutch, which permits the rotor to overspeed the engine during autorotation.

The Mosquito XE is the same aircraft, but the open frame tubing has been replaced with an all fiberglass closed in design. The XE airframe is a unibody construction made entirely of high quality fiberglass in a vinylester matrix. Power is provided by the same Compact Radial Engines MZ202 used for years on the open version of the Mosquito. This two cylinder, two stroke engine has a power output of 60hp, ample to do the work for its 610lbs of gross weight.

Mosquito XE


The power train, controls and rotor systems have been through some minor modifications to suit the XE design. The collective control has been adjusted to adapt to the different mounts in the XE. The main rotor blade diameter has increased by 1.5 ft to account for the additional gross weight. The Mosquito XEL is the same as the XE but is equipped with floats.

Materials provided with the kit include fiberglass airframe parts, machined parts, instruments (Rotor/Engine Tach, redundant digital engine tach with hour meter, dual EGT/CHT, Airspeed Indicator), rotor blades and engine. Many of the airframe parts are already joined. The builder needs only to bolt and rivet the final major components together.

A comprehensive assembly manual is provided along with a full set of part and assembly drawings as well as exploded view drawings. Builder assistance can be provided by phone or email. It requires around 250 to 300 hours of build time. Standard shop tools are required to cut and form some of the simple frame and control parts and for bolt and rivet assembly. A quick build parts set, in which all the parts nomally fabricated and formed by the builder are already finished, is available to save more build time. A small amount of welding is required on the exhaust system.

Optional extras to consider with purchase of the Mosquito include factory paint, tail fins, ceramic pistons, seat covers, governor kits, wheel kits and quick build parts.


The Mosquito XE can be ordered in several stages of kit. The 1st kit includes the materials and components for building the composite airframe. This group consists of the composite enclosure, fuel tank, tail boom, landing gear and the full Builder's Set of Plans and Instructions. The kit is designed to meet the 51% rule.


The 2nd kit is for the cyclic, collective, torque tubes, push-pull tubes, swash plate, and rotor controls.


The 3rd is the power drive system consisting of primary and secondary reduction units, sprague clutch, engine coupling shafts, tail rotor drive shaft components, gear boxes, main rotor shaft assembly, and associated bearings, couplings, etc. and the 4th group includes the engine, battery, centrifugal engine clutch, fuel tanks, fuel valves, fuel lines, throttle, switches, wiring, and instruments.


The final stage is the assembly of the rotor heads, the tail rotor blades, and main rotor blades but the manufacturer likes to see you have some training under your belt before finishing this stage and being tempted or hurried to get airborn.


Delivery on complete kits is around 6 months from placing a deposit, or around 2 months for a kit group, depending on factory demand at the time.
