I like Parkzone because I don't have to fool with stuff (usually).

I flew my T-28 bone stock for a year or so. Finally the plastic motor gave up the ghost and I stuck a new ESC and Power-10 in it. But I didn't have to. Flew my Corsair stock for a while. My P-47 is stock(with the Extra prop). And the micros are all stock except the Citabra which I put a DSM2 board in so I could use my good radio.

Anyway.. Thanks Dave.. The Mosquito is another winner.

All lipo's don't like to be run down low. As soon as you think there is a decrease in power or you hit the LVC you should land. I set a timer and land before either of those happen.

The stock batteries should last a long time if you take care of them. I don't know what the charge C rating is on them, but the manual said they should be charged at .7 amps.

As usual, it's great to see somebody from HH checking the forums! Good job Dave. Heck, it's saturday night! Hope your boss recognize your hard work!

Thanks

Hey dave, did HH solve the dying mustang motors problem? I went through 5 motors with the sukhoi xp, each with around 5 hours or less of flight time. I am using a 5043 prop, and hyperion batteries.

I did notice a little stress line on the end of the wing I will have to reinforce with tape. I had maybe 2 clicks trim left ail trim 20 expo ail. This guy likes to climb, but not at all unmanageable. The sound the twins make is just plain sweet. I had 6.30 min hyperion 240 no lvc.....I. bet it could go to 7. Did not try stock battery. 2 thumbs up!
Where was the stress line crack - at the fuse or out on the tip. The one that I saw get bunged up a bit last week at our indoor fly had a crack right at the fuselage and I wondered if this was a point that should have some tape right off the bat. So far I have not had an incident with mine so no marks or cracks so far, but if I thought this was the spot, I would tape it now. I agree with your comparison to the t28, the mossie is actually more stable and just as easy to fly, but more aerobatic it seems - just what I was hoping for.

I think I am going to pick one of these up while I am waiting for the Blade Mcpx miro heli to get here in the U.S. Just to cool of a bird to pass on!

Just a little one under the right wingtip. I put a little formula 560 on it and will be stronger than before. It is really hard to notice. Even with added tape, the stress line went underneath. This plane will be my favorite for sure. The sound alone makes me smile

Seen it once before, once was enough. Not a pretty video. At all. RIP airframe and those pilots.

I don't know if this has been posted before, but here is a video of the crash of the last flying Mosquito at an airshow a few yrs back! I did some research, and I guess their are a couple currently being restored for flight. Looks like a pretty rare bird these days.

Yeah, a few of us mentioned this video a while back in this thread, but decided not to post it. It is easy enough to find with a simple search, and it is just so heartbreaking to watch.

Looks like they lost rudder halfway through the roll. Was a cause ever given?

Nothing to do with rudder (rudder shouldn't be used on a Mossie in such manoeuvers anyway; it's a handling restriction that's warned about in the pilot's notes) - it was caused by an asymetric power failure due to mis-serviced carburrestors.

Full AAIB report is HERE.

for all that i see, these motors are designed basically for other use, like pagers, where they run momentarily, but when used wot all the time they have to wear out way faster.
i don't know if it's fair to blame hh for failures when used this way.
but then, i have been using them for sport flying, and as i heard all these comments, have been buying several kinds and testing and flying and so far, i have not had any failures, perhaps because rarely i go beyond 50%, and that just momentarily (and check for signals like the sound made when proper gear meshing).
maybe we are asking too much from these poor things.
just a thought.

While I am annoyed with the failing motors I keep buying these fantastic planes due to the fun factor and their value. However, a failure of a product is the responsibility of the manufacturer whether the product fails from parts made by them or a subcontractor. The case being Toyota, gas pedals made by subcontractors and a lack of quality control. Whether these little motors are designed for these planes is not the consumer's fault and therefore rest squarely on HH shoulders.

STILL LOVE THESE PLANES!

...unless you take the view that the motors are either "lifed" or "consumable".

My Micro p51 must have a hundred flights on it and I haven't felt the need to change motors yet.

Correct but then the question is what is the proper life of these tiny motors? I have heard some having very short lives where others like yourself having a good lifespan.

Back to your regularly scheduled programming of the Mossie!
