I think this will alter your muffler pressure to the fuel tank somewhat, this might cause problems?, why dont you just upgrade to a better muffler such as a Toki, or Funtech........

Changes very little, not much of a power boost. Your best bet if you want to get more "go" out of the 32 is a better muffler (KSJ Competition 30, muscle pipe, or probably a Hatori that fits) and/or 30% nitro if you're not already using it.

People have tried removing the baffle plate, as well as drilling six holes in it to relieve some back pressure. The noise doesn't increase a whole lot, but neither does the power.

The best way to get your Caliber to go ballistic is the OS 37 with a good matching muffler.

Well the OS37 and the hatori pipe are in there now should be interesting to see the difference this coming weekend.

BTW the Evo 50 just arrived sitting there waiting.

Also got a part time job fixing and assembling planes / kits / helis at the local hobby shop, which is good should balance out the hobby expenses.

shesha, if I had your money, I would throw mine out! Working at the LHS... if that happened to me, I would find more things that I could not posssibly live without. This hobby is certainly an obsession, from all aspects, building and flying and the logistics to support both. All the best.

I Shesha,

I did so for a while. You effectively gain some power (but it's not a miracle). Actually, you gain more noise than power. I won some more RPMs without tuning the engine and I had not problem at all with the tank pressure, but the best would be to invest in an OS.37SZ with the appropriate muffler (for instance the Hatori #415).

Have a nice week

Ok os37 with the hatori muffler just made the thing come alive, and I was also able to to do my first roll and and inverted hover this weekend for the first time, which lasted about 3 seconds, before I started to panic.

Awesome!!!!!

BIG difference with the 37, isn't there! Makes a whole different heli out of the Caliber.

At least you didn't crash it. I tried my first inverted hover with nasty results. Still in the rebuild stage. As always, I want to thank Chris at RCHW for the great parts support.

Chad I have atleast 100 hours worth of simulator practise before I even dared to attempt the roll and inverted over, and this was done at more then 100ft just incase, FYI when I flipped the switch on the radio to go into mode one which I setup for 3D mode the heli dropped maybe 10 ft before I adjusted the throttle lever to bring it back up again.

I think I have the throttle curves off a bit, the thottle jump from one mode to the other was very noticable, it could have been related to my stick positioning prior switching modes or it could have been the throttle curves did not match at the point where I transioned from one mode to the other. Have to investigate.

FYI the roll I did with the cal 30 with os37 and hatori pipe funnily enough was done in normal flight mode no flipping switches, I had enough Head speed and by the looks of it the -3, 0, +8 pitches curves setup for the normal flight modes was enough to achieve a good roll.

When I did my attempt, I had done probably 20 or so rolls from a hover. Just the quick in place rolls that you see. I practiced on the sim for 6 months while I was deployed. So I decided to attempt them when I got back. After of course getting back into the swing of things. Had no problem doing the rolls. On the last one of course, I decided to try and pause the helo when it got inverted. Thats when things went wrong. I think what happened is my oneway started slipping and the helo started coming down slowly like an inverted auto. I started at about 50ft or so. At about 20ft I noticed that I was running out of room quick and I tried to upright it. Well The head speed had dropped to much and there wasn't enough umph to roll it back over. It ended up doing a side plant into the ground. All in all I busted my stock canopy, fan, servo frames, rear body mounts, tail boom and supports, main blades, flybar, head and servo linkages, main mast, and spindle shaft. I got all the parts already except for the fan which I didn't notice before I made my order to Chris at RCHW. So right now I'm down for a fan. Just waiting on payday to make another order to Chris. As for as doing tricks in normal mode. Yeah not good juju. I did a flip on the same day and luckily pulled out of it. I was pretty scared on that one. Won't be doing that again.
