So I was out flying my Velocity and after I finally decide that my funny sounding squealing sound must be bad bearings in my OS 50 Hyper I sat down to pull the engine out and take a look. I was pulling the pipe off and thought well there my be some fuel in in so I carried it to the sick and turned it over and noticed a metallic sounding clunck from inside the pipe and thought that it couldn't be the pipe so I shook it and sure enough it was the pipe. Sounds like and looks as if the baffle has separated on the inside which I'm assuming was the horrible squealing I heard cause it was vibrating like crazy.

Has anyone else seen or had this happen? I plan a call to
Greg at HeliDirect on Monday to see whats up and hopefully have it replaced. I probably have less then two gallons of fuel threw it.

Same thing happened to mine just before Thanksgiving. It was replaced with with no issues. Prior to getting the pipe, I had read on forums that there was problems with the baffle breaking loose. Maby this one will hold up. I was told that Outrage had this issue resolved. If this one don't work out... I'm done

Good luck to ya.

Talked to Jody at Heli Direct on Monday. He's taking care of me and sending me out a new muffler and frame spacer. No hassles what so ever. Thanks Jody..
