I can understand your caution. Sure would have been nice if the WA really was 1280+.
The review on the Nitro site sure makes it a tempting plane.
Do you know of a smaller model of the Mosquito?
Thanks,
Neal

You are soooo right. 1280 would have been very nice and no, I know of nothing else near as nice as this guy.

I have not given up on this bird , for after all, it flew as a slimer.

I just want to get my old fingers a little more nimble before I try to tame her.

I'll pull it back out and do some re figuring this weekend and let you know what I come up with. You work in mm, right?

Thanks for your input. I'm starting to gather parts. Nitro and GS are out of stock right now. I'd like to use the Hyperion Z3025-10 and the 2 CC-45's that I have. MC says that I'll get a PS of 73.4 and thrust of 137oz with a 10x8x3 @ 87 Amps. That's where I'd like to start anyway.

Ok guy's...its getting close to ready. The battery tray is in, the canopy installed. Cog set at 116mm from the leading edge right next to the fuse( that's with the gear up). Motors tested. Just needs the decals and a good day.

I will post some pics of the finished product.

...and video of the first flight.

So you pulled the CG way forward of the factory specs.

How did you come up with that location?

BTW Good luck.

I have read the mosquito thread on RC universe and that CG is where guys are getting good results. I have actually ended up with a gear down cg of 122mm from the leading edge inboard of the engines and 125mm gear up cg. This cg has given alot of guys good results. The end result is a cg 25 to 30mm fwd of the factory rec.

Is that for glo or electric? If that's for electric then that's great, for glo you could move it up a little more. The CMP kits seem to have the CG too far back. I think that's what was behind Jeff's plane. Good luck with the maiden.
