Hate the massive traffic jams on the commute to your office? How about something that will not only help you completely avoid the traffic but also put an ear-to-ear wide smile on your face during your travels. A micro-sized helicopter! Meet the Mosquito XE Single Seat Helicopter by Composite FX, a tiny chopper that enables pilots to take to the skies without the need for airfields or similar expansive landing space. Described by the brand as an “affordable, high-performance machine for helicopter enthusiasts,” the ultra-light chopper features auto-rotation capability and strong tail rotor authority.
The company’s XE line of helicopters also includes a model named 285 – a more robust Mosquito which Composite FX calls the “workhorse” of the XE family. The chopper is piston-powered, water-cooled, and oil- and fuel-injected, with a programmable ignition. It is powered by a tiny 800cc 85HP horsepower with a fuel consumption rate of 6 gallons per hour. You can have a look at the micro-helicopter dipping and curving by watching the POV video down below.
