The XET Turbine uses 8.5gal/hour and can carry up to 20gal with an optional aux tank. The spec's say the range is 160 miles or 2.2 hours flight time.

Thanks, TheWoodCrafter

You got this wrong or backwards buddy:
I sat in one of these at IRCHA, and the guy told me that if you put floats on it, then it qualifies as "experimental" and you don't need a helicopter certification to fly it.
All of them (Mosquito XE, XE3 and XET) qualify as "Experimental" except for the Mosquito Air and Mosquito XEL which Qualify as "Ultralight". The Mosquito XEL must be purchased as an XEL with floats in order to qualify as an Ultralight. Technically you can't just buy an XE and put floats on it and call it an XEL even though an XEL is an XE with floats. It has to do with the order process and when the factory puts a serial number to the fuselage kit. They are individually indexed at that point by serial number as an XEL Ultralight or as an XE/XE3/XET Experimental.

You got this wrong or backwards buddy:
I picked up a spec/price sheet and UH-60PILOT is right about licensing. It is only required for the AIR and XEL models.
At least a private helicopter pilot's license is required for all of the Mosquito models except for the Mosquito Air and Mosquito XEL. These two qualify as legal "Ultralights" under FAR Part 103 and do noth require a pilot's license.

For the rest of you guys reading this don't confuse or lump "Experimental" and "Ultralight" aircraft as the same.

Yah, I did write that backwards.

NO license required for those 2 models.

Thanks for catching that.

Thanks, TheWoodCrafter

Hi guys and thanks for your interest and excitement about the Mosquito helicopter. Great to see results from all the many shows we take them to so you can see them for yourselves.

For those who can't make it to the exhibits we have over 60 videos on the Mosquito helicopter page on our website as well as all the info and details.

Better yet stop by our hangar at the Van Nuys airport anytime you are in the Los Angeles area to see them up close and bring your heli as we are only six blocks from the Apollo RC field.

You're also welcome to peek into our RC and model building shop where we build large scale custom models for individuals, companies, film, TV and government along with various UAV systems. You'll recognize many pieces from films and shows you've seen. When you visit we'll give you some free time in the flight simulator to give you a little taste of real flight experience. You'll be surprised how much your RC stick time helps.

For your further enjoyment here is full flight of the Mosquito XET turbine from start up to shut down.

awesome invite, now if I only lived in CA

i'll have to check out more of your videos. Looks like your pilot did a loop and then the trees got in the view. I'll see if any of your videos are at altitude, better view.

I wish getting a private pilot heli license wasn't so expensive, but I guess it keeps out some of the riff-raff.
