I had the local hobby shop order me an orange exhaust deflector and when it came in it was too small. The one that comes with the mvp muffler for my tt36 is 10mm in the opening. The one that I purchased is 7 1/2 mm. The exhaust hole out of the muffler is 9 mm. Any thoughts on if this is going to cost me power if I think about using the smaller one?

It will probably reduce the power some, possibly cause the engine to retain more heat, increase the fuel tank pressure, & burn out sooner. Other than that, I can think of no other adverse effects.

If God had meant for man to fly, he would have given him more money

Ahh but on the plus side it will probably make the engine sound a little quieter

I should imagine it will be OK on a tt36

I will post my results. As of now all I can tell is that it is more quiet.

hehe, I had to go fishing for mine yesterday, I was hovering over "the pond" (small puddle) that never seems to have enough time to dry up, and the deflector came off, so carried on and dipped the skids just for fun (they needed a clean anyway)

Then after landing I had to go looking for it, thankfully it was a bright orange one.

I've seen deflectors mentioned in several posts, if you'll excuse my ignorance can someone tell me what the deflector is for and where it mounts?

Geeez, Thanks Miami, I didnt realize that is what everyone was talking about. I've never given them a second thought. I put them on then forget about them.

I'm sure the pink and baby blue are hot sellers

Ask your Doctor if getting off your ass is right for you.

I took back the exhaust deflector and had them order me the correct one. I cant risk overheating, because I already have that problem.
