I am thinking of upgrading my Raptor 30 to a 50 and was wondering if anyone out there has used the Leo .46. I hear it is a great engine and has great horse power. If I were to upgrade what muffler should I get. I don't need loads of power just normal, I was thinking of the upgraded muffler from TT. Since I have the engine I just need the kit and the muffler right? That comes to like $137 from Heli-kraft. Got to love that.

The R30 to 50 conversion kit comes with a TT50 engine mount
you will need the OS46\50 engine mount for leo to fit.
I just put a leo 46 in to my R30\50 but still have'nt had the chance to
take it out so cant say how it runs. Also insted of the TT muffler how about this one http://www.curtisyoungblood.com/muscle_pipes.html

Will you let me know how you like it. I want to do it, I am just going to wait and see about funds. I went to that link, man some nice pipes. I have looked at them in the past, but i wanted the Weston. I like the fact that it put the exhaust straight down. I might end up going for another one here soon.

What I did
I bought a hobby taiwan 50 pipe with an OS 46.

The engine mount and 8.5 gear ratio.

Thats all. I modified the 30 fan (easy).

kept the 30 tail boom and blades.

I use a TJ Pro

Result fun fun fun

The conversion comes with the os mount and also comes with 2 shims if you use a tt motor....Don't mess around just get the os 50 muffler combo from heliproz.com...I just recently converted my 30 v.2 to a 50 v..2 and will never go back to a 30 again......
