Hmmm, looks interesting.

Nice size. Maybe a bit large on the tail.

Hmmm looks nice, and I really want a mosquito... But something doesnt look quite right and my gut feeling based on the 3 view is that the wing is about an inch too far back. The leading edge should be JUST behind the front of the canopy... Not half way down the canopy, and the fairings of the engine nacelles onto the top front of the wing aren't right....

I know... Picky!!!

Some bits of it I like and others not at all I think the HK Mossie is a closer scale plane. nice looking retracts though

Hmmmmm is it that the wing is too far back.... or that the nose and engine nacelles are a little too long?

Looks too weird. The wing area looks too small,probably because the tail area is enlarged,and further accentuated by the long nacelles.When you compare it to a three view,it's way off. The only good looking Mossie I've seen in ARF form is the FSK one. But that one is a bit small. The Mosquito is one of my all time favorite twins,but I just can't quite get myself to buy this one.

It seems like every ARF makes the rudder too big. I wonder if they all have done it to improve to tracking and help with the torque of the twin motors but adding that little extra vertical guide. Just a thought.

I wonder if any US distributors will pick this one up? Anyone know the shipping to the US?

Being a Freewing I would guess NP or BH... I saw a picture of one that HL was producing/carrying.

Free wing Mosquito


Has anyone built one? Just finished mine and am wondering about the CG. Looks like I have to add 3 oz to tail. Is this normal?
