FUNTECH B302 MUFFLER SPLIT OPEN
I was flying my Whiplash with YS120 and the funtec B302 muffler and was coming noise down fast from a very high altitude, suddenly noticed smoke all over the heli. Thought my heli was on fire and so went to a quick hover and down, found out the muffler was split open and was just handing on a metal which is no more than 5 mm. BTW it was a brand new muffler with like 20 flights on it.

If that muffler would have split open in flight, that heli was coming down due to blade strike to the muffler. I was lucky.

The local dealer was nice to offer me a full refund and now I have a hatori and just love it.
