Thanks so much. We have been writing back and forth through RC universe, and I was so happy to see you got your model in the air. Believe it or not, this is the best landing I have had with the model and have not duplicated it since. I just pulled back at the right time and there it was in the video. I am working on the issue of why the model just drops out of the air. Thanks for watching..
Smokyash: WOW! nice smooth flying! a definate ACE with this model. and Kudo's to your video operator for a nice smooth video. a pleasure to watch.
Thank you so much for your comments. We are indeed very fortunate to have such a nice flying field. Since this posted 2 years ago we have added a U-control circle, and more trees and and landscaping, and developed a north / south runway in the grass on the west side of the paved runway. We have a crew of volunteers and leaders that are dedicated to keeping the flying field nice. They are really great bunch of guys.
Alex Shone: Nice airfield u guys got there!
telecommunicatioinsd: Dear CarreraGTSCS,
Yes, RCU has tons of info on the CMP Mosquito, including many postings I added about all of the things I had done to get mine in the air. Yes, it flys real well with electric power. Many postings about that too. Just punch in "CMP Mosquito" in the forum section of RC universe, and you will see everything you would want to know about this model. Thanks so much for your comments. I plan on getting another video up soon with it flying with the cowls on.

Thank you for your kind words. The model has been a real challange to say the least. Too many modifications to mention here. If you go to RC Universe in the forums section, and punch in CMP DeHavilland Mosquito, you can read about everything I went through to get her in the air. My post started on page 27. It is post 670, I believe where I started talking about my model and my experiances. You should see her fly with the cowls on it now. It goes another 15 mph in the air.
david79424: I just have to say that was some of the best rc pilot skills I've seen to date. The Mosquito is not an easy rc model to fly or build. A right stinker! 5/5.
telecommunicatioinsd: Thanks Glenn,
Hey, I think you are ready to try a twin engine project out. I know your voyager is a "twin" but it doesn't count because A, you have one engine behind the other, and B, it is electric. It indeed is a challange, but I know you could handle it just fine...
All kidding aside Glenn about your beautiful voyager, you might think about it first "before" you build the "X Prize" model next.....
Glenn Dunlap: nice Dave, engines sound synced up and blazin!
telecommunicatioinsd: The model has taken me 2 years to complete necessary engineering changes to get it in the air off of a paved runway. Completely rebuilt the landing gear and used "Dave Brown" 3 1/2 inch "Lite" Wheels to stabilize the model. Rebuilt and installed 2 O.S. 40SF engines using 300cc gas tanks. The video was shot by my wife at our club field called the Greater Cincinnati Radio Control Club near Hamilton Ohio. Will work on putting on the cowls. CG should be at 110mm and about 20% flaps. Smooth Landings.
