Hello all,

I have a question about the Align pipe on my OS50. Is it normal for it to sound sort of raspy? It makes the motor sound lean to me but it is running cool and with a lot of smoke.
It really sounds raspy compared to my 30 with a Mav pipe.

What do you think?

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

Personally I'd only use the Align pipe as a backup. They've had numerous issues with the welds breaking at the header. If you're lucky and hear it before your engine leans out and land it.

I don't know the hours of use as to when they were breaking, hence, use as a backup.

Mine came with the used heli and I don't know how many hours are on it.
What pipe do you recommend?

there are several Funtech, Hatori, Novarossi. I use the Curtis Youngblood Muscle pipe MP5 (non stick banging version) The SB version does produce a little more power but at the expense of a narrow power band.

The initial align pipes does have issue but I think they rectified it now.

Thanks for the info guys. Like I said, I don't know how old my Align pipe is so I think that I'll look around for another pipe.

Give it a brisk shake, if you dont hear any rattling it should be fine. I've got an old one with 200 flights on it.

No big surprise, I just throw them out when it happens, I got tired of trying to chase them around.

Switch to Hatori

I am running the magnum fuels (Buzz's) tuned pipes right now but wouldn't mind ecperimenting with some tuned mufflers as well. Heard good stuff about the hatori, just don't like the price, what's the other options?

Inexpensive option = Outrage and the are pretty good though I do have one that turned into a rattler.

Muscle Pipe's are a good option also for the money.

Hatori SB50JK is still one of my favorite exhaust for the 50 class engines. Sound great, run great. Can be found cheap used if you keep an eye out for them.
