Here is a description of the Mosquito’s flight characteristics: It handles like a Schweizer 300, but is quicker. It has no trouble doing hovering turns in strong winds. It has plenty of power. The Mosquito is the only helicopter of any make that is routinely demonstrated doing autorotations to the ground, even unprepared turf. (Some Mosquito pilots routinely demonstrate 15’ hovering autorotations, a feat you wouldn’t want to do on most any other helo, certified or not. Larger choppers like the Bell 47, the Hiller H-23, and the Huey are capable of this.) If you’re a rated helicopter pilot, you will have no trouble lifting off and flying away your first flight. If you are an FAA Student Pilot and have soloed in helicopters (preferably Schweizers) you can continue your training and log the time in a Mosquito XE.
