I don't understand this, the Aussie-US dollar is about 1 to 1 and yet the Mini Mossie is $119 in the states and $149 in OZ! Bloody hell Australia is even closer to China than the US so shipping should be even cheaper....Aussies are SO gettin ripped off here!

YET AGAIN........


MODELFLIGHT AUSTRALIA = FAIL!

Motors come in a 2 motor set, so it looks like they might be different.

here's the parts list:

Search Mosquito on Hobbyzone

Lots of cool stuff.

The Reverse gearshaft will work great for Pusher builds.

That's crazy. You can nearly get the big mosquito with retracts for that.

Or just do what I did..I had a pretty good feeling something was coming soon, and I sold off a couple of my UM's.

Sounds like the motors turn the same normal way for both and they are just reversing it via gearing.

I don't think so.

The Different gearshafts have reverse thread from normal gearshafts so the nut's and props don't fly off.

To reverse the gearbox, they would need 1 more gear in the reverse box and two different gearbox designs
