Anybody ever try using an "X-can" used in gas powered RC cars that Daves Motors sells? it would fit, just don't know anything about weight and sound... It seems to have a greater internal volume than the stock black can "heli" muffler with a higher flow and its cheaper than a V2...

thoughts?

How much is it? Sure would like to see inside that thing.
I guess you have to see the inside to mount it.

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

used them before

if you want to use something like that, save your money and use the stock cannister. Its a lot cheaper and will have about the same sound.

Daves sells them for $75, the inside is completely empty. Other websites discuss a packing material.

I kinda figured the sound would be about the same. But considering it has double the exhaust stinger area and the stingers appear to be half the length the flow is higher. The internal volume is also higher than the stock canister by a small amount, so was wondering about the performance as compared to the V2.

I need a more compact muffler that flows similar to the V2 but does not act like a tuning fork as it sticks out so far out the back from the engine.

Or am I stuck making my own with this one too?
