MOSQUITO AIR Helicopter - Kit #1

Group Kit #1 Only  (includes the Airframe, Fuselage, Tank, Tail boom, Skids, Materials and Fasteners to Assemble the Complete AIR Airframe)

A Mosquito Helicopter can be purchased three different ways:

  1. as an entire complete Full Kit purchased at one time and then assembled and built by the purchaser
  2. as five seperate Sub-Groups Kits purchased individually at different times as you have time and budget to proceed.
  3. as a complete assembled Ready To Fly helicopter already built when you receive it.

This listing is for Group #1 Kit which is the first of the five group kits which make up the entire helicopter. You must have all 5 Group Kits to complete the helicopter and you must assemble them in sequence from 1 to 5. See other eBay listings to purchase Mosquito AIR Group Kits #2, #3, #4 and #5 or the Full Kit or the ReadyBuilt Mosquito AIR helicopter.

"The Ultimate Flight Experience"

ROTOR F/X is proud to represent the exciting line of  Mosquito helicopters. Whether you want the challenge and satisfaction of building a kit yourself or an assembled and tested ready to fly helicopter there is a complete range of choices to meet any budget or technical quest.

The MOSQUITO AIR : For simplicity and pure "out there' flying experience consider the Mosquito Air. This is as basic and thrilling as it gets, cruising over the landscape below with little to obstruct your view or the exhilaration of the wind rushing past. This pure fun ship can be flown under FAA Part 103 ultralight rules and does not require aircraft registration or pilot license*. The Mosquito Air is available ReadyBuilt©, as a full kit or can be purchased in sub groups to meet your time and budget availability. A deposit as low as $3000 for the first sub-group or $6000 for the full kit can get you on your way to this unique experience like no other.  

Builders Assistance is available for all models should you need partial or full time help constructing your helicopter or for the ultimate construction experience take advantage of our Rent-a-Shop program. Once your construction is complete you can have ROTOR F/X inspect and test your helicopter here or at your location (contact us for rates and scheduling).

* As with any aircraft, competent practices, operation and training should be observed at all times.  Aircraft can be extremely dangerous should not be taken lightly and no careless or reckless behavior should be tolerated of allowed at any time.  Improper maintenance or operation can result in serious injury or even death. These helicopters should never be operated without sufficient training and instruction and under no circumstances should one attempt to self teach themselves how to fly these aircraft. All prices quoted include a $2000 discount which shall only be applied if the buyer can provide verifiable documentation that they have received at least 10 hours of professional flight instruction in helicopters.
