Dick Campbell was interviewed by "In The Hangar" on his build of his Mosquito XE285 helicopter.

RC Flying Field Visit with Mosquito XET

2020 CFX Factory Fly-In attended by 1 person 

Got the chance to break away and get back down to the Composite FX factory in Trenton FL to work on some future projects with Dwight Junkin, Mike Messex and Phillip Blaha. We did a lot of work and while I was there, I got to have some fun. I got the chance to pull the Mosquito XET out a couple of times and do some flying. As you know, this years 2020 CFX Factory Fly In was canceled due to the CV19 pandemic. I joked around and said I had my very own impromptu, one man, social distancing, CFX factory fly-in for 2020.

I certainly hope the actual CFX Factory Fly In for 2021 has a lot more pilots, we are all back to a normal life and this pandemic of 2020 is long over. Wishing everyone the best of health!

First take off of the day

Oh look, there's a cone

Step one: Knock over the cone

Step two: Violate the cone

Step three: leave the area like it was your cone in the first place

Have Cone, Will Travel!!!

Step four: play with cone all day and hope it doesn't embarrass you

88MPH pass. Could you see the flash induced by the flux capacitor?

Hopefully I'll see "YOU" at the Composite FX Factory Fly In 2021

After some emails and texts about "where's the video's", here ya go. I finally decided to sit down and put something together. Here was my first hover test of the Mosquito XET. Nothing spectacular but some great sounds of turbine whine and some blade noises.
