I rememeber way back when they were using small airsol cans for mufflers, other than that looks like someone tormented some once useful muff stuff

Mufflers

The one on the right is just a small aerosol can muffler. The one in the middle is similar to Curtis Youngblood's original pipe and header combo, but his had the outlet on the side. IDK who made it. The headers and muffler on the left were distributed by Miniature Aircraft, but I don't believe they were the manufacturer. Likely the original source was Hatori. Hope this helps. steve.

Mufflers?

I'm looking at that some more. Are the two on the right welded or glued together? If so, it might be a CY pipe that some smart modeler modified to tame the noise. The original Curtis pipe was pretty loud, so that would make some sense to me. steve.

I know exactly what they are because they were MINE .

The assembly on the right is a 40 sized V-Tech that I flew on carbon frame conversion X-Cell 30 over a decade ago. The original V-Tech was too damn loud for my taste and didn't provide enough back pressure for the 32, so I added on the butane canister to quiet things down. The two are joined with black RTV. The combination ran incredibly well and was very quiet and made good power.

The muffler on the left is an old MA offering as are the headers. The muffler/header and header on the left cheap Chinese pieces bearing absolutely so resemblance in quality to a Hatori. The muffler on the left made pi$$ poor power when paired with that short header. The other header was designed to mate with a tuned expansion chamber with a front inlet. Everything in those pics is painted with BBQ black Rustoleum of the old formulation that existed before the crap they sell now.

Gosh what a small world this is...

Or he doesn't know what an exhaust system is.
