The Mosquito single seater lightweight helicopter

Here is a Smart haulable helicopter? It is a Mosquito or "Muecke" (article on Gizmag).

Consumer reports will probably give it an awful review. Can't haul a family of 4? Pish.

Back in the day, when I was young and could move....

I had something "very" similar to this:


Bensen Gyro-copters and Gyro-gliders


What a BLAST it was to "drive" Just like a flying motorcycle !!!!!

And, I can't tow a boat? No room for two weeks worth of groceries or 3 sets of golf clubs? It's not made by Toyota or Honda? Probably doesn't have enough cup holders, either. They should skip the airbags, ABS, and TCS and really try out the ejection seat option!

I've seen powered parachute craft and always thought it would be interesting try it out. I like that built-in parachute concept!

Easy Flight Powered Parachutes

Those look to be "fun" too

Back "in the day" we didn't need no "stinkin'" license neither !

OBTW, like your choice of "smart" colors

Yeah, we decided to come to the "Red Side." We heard red smarts have more fun! I finally got around to changing my Fuelly photo.

But, I'm still thinking about having the white panels painted a yellow-orange color and do the same striping. Something like the Mitsu Solar Satin at Mitsubishi Motors - 360 & Colors
