Cricket HeloBall needed .28
Hey guys,

I am working on a ground up Cricket restoration and am in need of a 5344 HeloBall to fit my brand new 30 year old OS Max .28 F H

Any help in finding one would be greatly appreciated... And yes I do check ebay religiously

Good luck finding one of those. Everyone and their brother with a Cricket are looking for that same muffler, including myself. I don't know why nobody ever uses the stock OS engine muffler. Just an FYI, the 25fsr, heatsink, and stock OS muffler were the original items for all of you die hard restoration fans.

You got it Steve
I am using my stock o.s muffler ... it sets a little higher from the ground than the heliball muffler did too . I only had the heliball on my next bird ... the .40 revolution and my .60 size ,, they were a little quieter ,,but not that much .

That is a very good point! If I stumble on to a heloball sure I will jump on it as they look so cool but anymore I am happy with the stock OS muffler.
Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

I also found out that, although not stock for the period, the more modern OS mufflers like for the 25FX, 32SX, etc, the ones with the adjustable outlet, allow the engine to breathe a little better. If you do use the stock muffler, try opening up the stinger a little with the next bigger size or two drill bit. This yields a better breathing engine too.
Believe it or not, I'm running my Cricket on a K&B 3.5 with the Tatone / GMP muffler and a vintage Team Associated R&A RC Car heat sink head for the K&B. It's only a .21 but it RRRRIPS!

That was always a great combination for the Cricket!

Steve,

You got any videos of your bird flying with the K&B?

Regarding the Heloball. There used to be some on ebay but it looks like they all sold now. I beleive they were all old stock from Sheldon Hobbies or something. I'm really kicking myself for not getting one back then. I have scoured the internet looking for that part number but have come up empty. I would like to have one for my Cricket too, just for looks. Its a shelf queen. I don't know if I will ever try to fly it. I'd hate to see it go splat.
