    Probably not the best day for a “test flight.” Notice the tree tops blowing around in the background? That’s a lot more than a gentle breeze, and the venturi effect of the runway corridor could be problematic. It is hard to get a feel for the aircraft, it’s controls and detect any problems, when you are bouncing around (and distracted by) the turbulence. Just a thought. Test flew countless experimentals for 20+ years.

    When I was living in Brasil, there were pretty regular stories about people losing their heads to the glass covered strings the kids use for their kite wars. Don’t know if it made it to law, but it was being mulled over to mandate a steel rod on the front of motorbikes and pedal bikes for that specific reason.

    you are very good at flying. Kudos.

    There are two guys that fly one person kit copters around our town and I’d like to kick both of them square in the head. Round and around the town they’ll go with those droning assed engines in your ears. Annoying as hell.

    Good job. So much work to fly one of these things you don’t get much chance to enjoy the scenery.

    all helicopters stop at a certain altitude because the air is less dence witch affects the performace of the motor and blades. Even a R44 starts having trouble at 8k

  15. Prometheus203 says:

    You can fly up to 12,500 feet continuous and up to 14,000 feet for up to 30 minutes without supplemental oxygen under FAA regulations.

    hahahahahahhaahahaha……………….

  17. chrismofer says:

    well of course you cant open canopy to 10k feet (without scuba gear) i assumed that was implied.

  18. 81Kush says:

    because you cant fly above 10k ft without oxygen DUH! and your correct the mosquito is nearly identical but this isnt one

  19. chrismofer says:

    this is NOT a mosquito, the mosquito is not turbine. this is a (probably homebuild) expiremental and thus he doesent want to go too high for safety reasons, also it appears he never leaves “ground effect” but im sure its possible. the mosquito and this helicopter will fly as high as you have gas to take it. why would it stop at a certain altitude? that doesent make sence.

  20. 81Kush says:

    its called a mosquito and its a little heli thatll do anything a bi one will but im sure it doesnt go too high

  21. eaford214 says:

    Great job Mike!!! Nice little egg-eater you got there. Did you teach yourself how to fly it or did you take lessons??

  22. antigravitycake says:

    do a barrel roll

    Is this the highest it will go?

  25. Digitalman271 says:

    Umm… I know. I wasn’t referring to that. I just deleted my comment because your the second person who’s informed me of my error, but I wasn’t referring from a political stance nor was I referring to corporate corruption. Just because I don’t like gas, doesn’t mean I don’t think for myself, or suck in all the bs that corporations drop on us. It’s my PERSONAL opinion that I think we could eventually do better without gas. I don’t get that from the media. I just obsess over self sufficiency.
