    Simulating the Mosquito XE3

    This home-built rotorcraft is designed and certified for recreational flying and nothing else. It's too small to carry passengers or cargo, and its fuel supply enables short distances and durations. It is not equiped for night or IMC operations. But flying it visually is all the fun the designers intended. It's particularly good for low-level sightseeing and short hops from one airfield to another.

    More Information

    Information about the real-world Mosquito XE3 can be found at Internet sites such as Mosquito Aviation and YouTube.

      It's a great helicopter. If you know how to fly helicopters in flight sim you should have no problem flying this one.

      OK, No problem, But certainly you can fly without GPS, without artificial horizon, but who has the courage to fly without a compass?

      I never did see a compass in my sample pictures. I will have to look at more samples for the next release!
