I agree that's not my plan of attack, but it IS sharp!I'm not a fan of a bunch of digital gauges for everything, which is what I'm assuming those are - and see no need for a ball when a piece of yarn works great.
Kind of funny in that I'm just the opposite. Mine would at the very least need a comm radio and a transponder as my hangar is on a towered field underneath a mode C veil.I agree that's not my plan of attack, but it IS sharp!
If I built a Mosquito, I'd be saying "What can I throw away and leave off?" I would not be seeing what I could add.
I'd have a dual needle/single axis rotor/engine tach and HUGE DIGITAL EGT/CHT's that has entire digits that turn green/amber/flashing-red and NOTHING ELSE.
No A/S, no VSI, No altimeter, no radios, and no switches that weigh a pound each. My goal would be to build the absolute lightest Mosquito anyone has built.
