I just got involved in gas heli's and bought the radikal. My question is I bought the torpedo muffler and it comes with a washer that goes into the rear of the muffler to create back pressure on the motor, do I need to use it or not ? thanks in advance for people who post the answer

It's mainly used for sound control. Add it and it should drop the noise level by a couple Db's.

Hope this helps.

Thanks I appreciate the reply. Does it affect the power output at all or sound only ?

I've run it both ways. No appreciable difference in performance either way that I could see, measured with a DB meter we found it to be about 2 DB quieter with the washer installed.

Was that 2dB difference noticeable?

Barely, it takes the sharp edge off the sound, but not much else.
