There is a guy on RunRyder who lives in Hawaii who I know makes and sells them. I bought a bunch from him before, but can't remeber his RR name.

them "remove before flight" flags, especially on exhaust plugs, for purposes other than aesthetics, are stupid.

I mean, why would you need one on your muffler?
If you have an exhaust plug stuck in the end of your pipe, you aint even gonna get that thing started.

Forgetting about and leaving it plugged, then not realizing it untill the heli is in the air, is the very last of your worries.

Plugging the exhaust will prevent the engine getting moisture in it

I think for the exhaust plug,the flag is more for convenience.I've done it,get everything set and you forget something.DOH!
There's one on my pin switch.I've started up before without pulling the pin.That story's for another thread.

hey

i never heard of that...might be true though

i've always been taught that an exhaust plugs soul purpose is to keep the muffler from dripping fuel while in the car and at home in the living room/kitchen table/bedroom

Thanks

Just get a red ribbon from your wifes or girls sewing kit.
I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

The "Remove before flight" tags are used in full scale aeronautics. You can find one here:

Thanks for all the info. I use exhaust plugs because I hang my helis on the wall and they drip on the carpet. I use the rubber ones with the plugs built on them for my nitro helis. But I also have a couple of gassers and I cant use the rubber plugs on them.

I've attempted to start my heli a few times forgetting the plug was still in place. This resulted in a hydrolock and sheared the setcrew off the hex adapter. A flag is a good idea for a dumbass like me.Huh?

The remove before flight tags are also used with the Arizona Regulator pin switch.Wolves don't lose sleep over the opinions of sheep

The flag that comes on the Arizona is pretty cheap, something ate mine in half within the first week. I found you need something on the pin and the muffler plug because they get lost pretty easy when you take it out. Thanks for the link, I ordered up 4 of them, they look to be a lot better quality then the Arizona flag.

Uh . . . . WRONG!!!!! Mine start and run for a minute or so - just long enough to get over the tall grass when it sometimes blows the plug out, causing me to have to search for the damn thing in the grass . . . I would *love* to have the biga** streamer on the exhaust plug, to make up for my crappy memory . . . Oh, and engines are YS50 and YS80 - with large volume mufflers, they start just fine with the plug in!
