Muscle pipe 5 or Zimmerman
OK here is the question on a raptor 50 V2 using an os 50 sx ringed which exhaust is best for 3D flying the new muscle pipe 5 or a zimmerman. And can anybody explain why?

Many thanks

Andy

MP5
Louder
More power
Limited RPM range
Cheaper

Zimmerman
Quiet
Less power
wide RPM range
Expensive

For hard 3d the MP5 is better. If you want to run two or more headspeeds, you need a muffler.

I have a MP2 on my Raptor 50V2 and a MP5 on my T-Rex 600N. Both are great mufflers and I don't think it's that loud at all.

The answers you get depend where you are, the Zimmerman pipes are fairly popular in the UK, not so much elsewhere, and I wouldn't have anything else on my heli if I could avoid it.

Hi

The MP5 50 could never be called load, maybe you heared a old MP2?
I don't think the Zimmermann would be much quiter than a MP5 50 but would certainly be a good deal less power, if your into F3C type flying then maybe the Zimmermann would be a option but for every one else the MP5 50 is the kiddie!

Cheers

Zimmerman is good for 3D as well. I do a lot of 3D with the Zimmerman. Get a lot of positive comments on how silent it is. I can't compare with the MP5 as I dont have one. But so far no one else claimed to have flown both MP5 and Zimmerman on one machine except maybe fritz so I would take above comments with some salt...

The MP5 has a much wider RPM range than the MP2.Helicopters - 1000 parts flying in formation.

MP5 Owners,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
What rpm range does the motor like with this muffler?
Want one for my Raptor 50 and want between 1900 2000 headspeed with my CSM R10 Gov. Will this work better than the TT Stock 50 muffler?
Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

Zimmerman is a great muffler. Stainless steel looks great and stays clean. Nice and quiet. Great power, not huge and not expensive.Wolves don't lose sleep over the opinions of sheep

Head speed wise it seems happy from 1500-2200. And absolutly better then the tt.
