No gasser, nitro. I think it was a .46 size and wasn't a success in USA.

Hello All: It was the first Moskito design to be released by Robbe/Schluter, probably in the late 80's to early 90'S. Several later design iterations followed over the years. I believe it was a 40 sized engine that it used. It was a cute looking machine.

I love the shot showing the nice shiny high rise buildings with the old crumbling buildings in front.
And whats with the drainage system on the old building on the left ?.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

lol. Nah. I only fly Align and Hirobo. I did not even bother checking in detail the helis the shop is selling. I just find that helicopter looks so cute as a display atop the shop.

Not on mine. But I remember in the Schluter cataloque there were a few options for gear and canopy, etc for the Mosquito.

Mine had a fixed plastic molded pilot and a clear canopy over it. IIRC the whole works weighed quite a bit - the wheels (rubber on a rim similar to Dubro airplane wheels) and landing gear were pretty solid & beefy plastic.

Definitely different... I flew my Magic a lot more and sold the Moskito back to another club member, who I originally got it from.

I think there was a Hughes 300 version of it. I think the engine was mounted sideways too.

I think this heli might be also for me the idea to have an inverted heli to my garage's ceiling with swashplate full up by gravity,glued auto-rotation bearing and counter-rotating blades with a speed control
and a power supply from home electric.
