Well that's definitely the way I'm thinking. Will be trying to resist doing anything too radical at all with this - given I'm not much more than a beginner and this will be my first 4ch plane that's the only way I'm not going to destroy it! Some nice coordinated turns will be good.

A Champ, some FP helis and plenty of Phoenix sim time - will also be getting a FZ Albatros in the air soon (probably before the Mossie given UK release times). I can certainly bring anything back unharmed in the sim provided I don't get too wild.

Please don't tell me I'm not good enough to fly the Mossie!

Haha, no I'm sure you will be fine! The mossie looks quite docile in the air, have the rates down low and you'll be rocking!

Ok so I'm back at work feverishly anticipating someone's unboxing & maiden photos/vids...

If you've flown a sim, just make sure it's not too windy and I'm sure you'll get the hang of the Mossie in less than 5 minutes.

I would have thought the best way to handle the reversed prop would be to use the same motor turned backwards (output gear facing the rear), with the large prop shaft gear on the rear end of the prop shaft and the prop on the front. Propshaft and gearbox would be different, but motor and gears could be exactly the same. Gearbox would be longer to avoid a really long unsupported section of propshaft.

Unless there's really no issue with running one of these motors backwards.

I assume the one propshaft has reverse threads.

There was a discussion a while back in this thread where we were discussing whether or not PZ had developed a whole new motor for the CCW rotating engine.

The part number is for 2 motors, so i guess that one is CW and the other is CCW rotating - tho i still think just reversing the polarity of one will suffice to achieve this.
It does use the same motor for left and right. "Motor (2): Mosquito
$18.99 [PKZU1309]".

Me too, but someone earlier in the thread was explaining that just reversing the polarity would damage the brushes - we will have to wait and see!

If they are the same motor why do they sell them in packs of two? If they are the same just reverse polarised at the ESC pins then there's no need for packs of two. Anyone opened one up yet?

I couldn't find the prop shafts on the parts list.

I think I read the parts listing wrong. I was thinking the "2" ment 2 required, but I think you are correct that it comes with both motors.

Decided to place my order today. I wasn't planning on spending any money until next week, but I figured hell if I buy it now at least I'll be able to fly it next Sunday if the weather permits. Very excited to see how this flies!
With only one battery, I hope the 160mahs will make her fly as well.

Depends on their C rating - if its high enough she will fly with them, but just not for long!

That should have said 'reversed prop', rotaing the mnotor as describe4d would keep the motor roitating in the same direction while rteversing the prop.

Well, wires for the motors are in plain view, between the fuselage and the nacelles, so the first one who get a Mossie has to tell us the color of the motor wires. If they are different color (black and white on one side and something else on the other side) then they are different motors. If on the final products, the wires going from the Rx to the motors are both black and white, then, it's more likely the same motor.

So, the wait begin...
