I fly both and I guess I would have to say the full size is easier hands down simply because of the orientation always being the same. By the way, to me flying the full size is more relaxing than the model because I'm sitting down.

Check out the full size helis in my gallery: I do love to fly!

Depends on how you view easier! Full size is way more work, check the instruments, scan the horizon, check the gauges, turn on the carb heat, scan, listen to the radio, turn on the landing light, check for traffic, radio the tower, check the gauges........man I was usually tired after about an hour of that. Could be me though I recently flew on a charter to Catalina. I was worried the pilot was going to fall asleep. Had his hand off of the collective most of the flight, rarely looked at his instruments or checked for traffic. Made me kind of nervous.

ecoliburger,

Dang man, you make it sound like it's really hard work. I guess it's just easy for me now that I've been doing it for so long.

3DX,

The Mosquito is a blast to fly and I believe it is as safe as you want to fly it. Experimental and ultralight aircraft get a bad wrap sometimes because they are so easy and affordable to get into that inexperience gets a lot of people in trouble. They are still machines and must be respected and understood by the operator. A lot of the applicable experience only comes with time. I'm sure you have heard the phrase "there are old pilots and bold pilots but not many old, bold pilots".

If you all are interested you can buy chances to win a Mosquito on the home page. The winner also gets $10,000 worth of helicopter training. Check it out. The odds of winning are pretty good with only 2000 chances. Good luck!

3DX, Yes, you can fly up to 240 lbs. The helicopter is powerful enough to pick up more weight than 240 but it is a matter of center of gravity above that weight.

3DX, It is a blast to fly. It is as pure of a helicopter as you can fly. No hydraulics, SAS or anything automatic. We are having a fly in at the factory in Trenton, FL followed by another fly in at River Ranch, FL next month. Maybe you can come and see them fly there and meet the people from the factory. The fly in at Trenton will be December 27, 28 & 29 and then we move to the fly in at River Ranch on December 30, 31 & January 1. Here's the info for the Fly in:

Full scale more demanding but more fun also. R/C a bit more stable but then it has to be because we don't have the same sensory inputs.

I imagine that with RC (for the most part) your life isn't on the line if you screw up!
