The new Curtis muscle pipe arrived at my local model shop last week so had to have one.
Fitted to my Caliber 30 it snuggled nicely into the new Caliber 30 FT cabin , which by the way looks really cool .
My joy continued as it flew away , it transformed my OS32 , and was ballistic.
The down side is --it's very noisy !!!

I`m sure you`re going to be pissed if I tell you Curtis just released a NEW QUIET MPII, both 50 and 30. 30 is already being sold...

look at: http://www.curtisyoungblood.com

Sorry,

Rich

You must have an MP2 without the insert. Mine, after the insert is decently quiet. The neighbors don't complain about it when I fly.

Would the insert be a short piece of ali with an angled cut at one end.
If so what do I do with it .

Glad you take it the way you do... .

I was quite pissed and Curtis just received (I hope) my MPII 50 to exchange it for a Quiet one. Don`t get me wrong, I just love the MPII, especially the power it gives and the way it makes the engine behave....

I hope my MPII 50Q LR gets here fast

Cheers,

Rich

.50 MP II Q version

I called Curtis Enterprises yesterday and the guy said that it was going to be delayed another 2 - 3 months. Guess I will go with the KSJ or maybe try the .60 muffler like everyone is talking about.

Shove it up your MP2 tailpipe

Literally. The beveled end of the insert goes into the exhaust opening of the MP2 until it bottoms out on the internal baffle. There may be some of the insert hanging out after insertion. If it's not a tight fit, you may have to use a small sheet metal screw to secure it. All of these instruction are on the CY MP2 web page.

I was wrong

All of these instructions are on the CY MP2 web page.
This statement was true the last time I checked. The instructions are no longer there. I'm astonished that instructions for the insert were not included in the box.

As a follow up, did the insert tone things down to an acceptable level?

We had a rubbish Sunday last weekend Northerly winds with a blizard thrown in now and then, so have not tried the pipe yet with the insert -
hopefully this weekend.
Will certainly report results.
Thanks your info.

Hi wisdom-seeker

Got a flight with the Caliber today sporting the muscle pipe with the now infamous insert where it should be and can report a marked decrease in noise --- it's not exactly quite but much better ,a view echoed by fellow club members.
The best news is it still gives the Motor a hell of a surge of previously untapped power.
Cool

Dave
