Wondering if there are any other Mosquito drivers here on HBA. I recently finished some post-assembly testing on one for an old friend. Most fun I ever had flying a helicopter!!

I know someone with a jet one. Another buddy had a Helicycle. I haven’t flown either but I worked on the HC with him. The helicycle went to a group to build turbine time with. I’m friends with one who was in the group. Another member got it in settling with power and totaled it. They do look fun.

It literally feels like a motorcycle operating in all 3 dimensions. Power margin was not too bad (just enough) and tail rotor authority was very good. Simple bird too, even for a rotorcraft!

I kinda want one now... 🤣
