Another solution is the little gassers to keep interest in IC in general and give these manufacturers a market to grow into.

Seems to me it'd be bemoaning to just be bummed out without realizing that we're going to be OK. If anything, I talked about Funtech, little gassers, etc. as a future. And how I switched brands and you can, too. I did and continue to enjoy the nitro flying that I do.

I already stated I'm not going to be heavily impacted by this passing. That's hardly bemoaning.

And I talked about the contracting market and its realities. You call that spin? If you can show me growth charts in our hobby I'll concede but until then I think I just spoke what many already know.

You're easily entertained...all is good.

Now WTF is the your crack about my helping someone solve his HW gov. sensor issue?

You implied that there would be a fire as a result of my recommendation.

I'm not gonna take that BS from you or anyone else.

Got it?

Now....let's just drop this rancor.

You accused me of attempting to have another flyer start a fire.

On the contrary, you are through, as far as I'm concerned...at this time....go to confessional....

Not sure where you guys are getting your info from.

RC Japan have simply stated a couple of 105 and 120 size mufflers are not being produced. I have not read anywhere but here that Hatori have gone out of business. BTW the model helicopter world is a lot bigger than the USA.

Japanese website is business as usual.

The link on Page 1 seemed pretty unequivocal to me. Unless RC Japan is mistaken?

"Hatori is going out of business and soon all items will be discontinued. There are still many items available, but there is good news. Another great Japanese company called M-Studio makes alternative replacement and we highly suggest you try it. We start by informing you about two items which are replacement for very popular Hatori muffler which is already sold out."

At which point they introduce the 105/120 replacement pipes (i.e. the two items already sold out).

Seems pretty unequivocal that they are saying after these two, all are to follow. And RR didn't make this up. This banner is all over the forums when I did a googlesearch.

I'll have to check my calendar. I could have sworn April 1 was a couple months back.

Man, that'd be a pretty serious translation faux pas!

They had pipes, but they weren't "tuned".

The pipe tuning effect is only useful for 2-cycle engines.

On the 4-cycles, they were used to muffle the sound.
Which is why I very deliberately left he word "tuned" out of that sentence.
All moot. F3A is nearly all electric, now.
Much of it is, but I thought i read in the mags that glow made a little of a comeback in the last couple years. Looks like about 1/4 of the field at the last one were flying YS and LeRoux took 1st place on YS power.

YS is still designing new engines - pretty damn cool ones at that, with direct injection and CDI like the DZ185 and DZ175CDI

I just got this email from Richard at Hatori USA.

Hi

Sorry about the refund. The story being spread by R C Japan is wrong. Hatori Models is not out of business. He discontinued the 120 and 105 pipes. They were selling poorly in Japan. He ran out of 45mm dia pipe and to keep the price the same would have had to buy enough material that would last 3 years at the rate they were selling. So he made a decision to discontinue them.

Hope this help clarify the situation. I have plenty of stock of the other pipes

Regards

RIchard

Hatori Closing
Hatori Japan is NOT CLOSING. R C Japan is spreading unfounded rumors. Hatori only discontinued the 120 and 105 mufflers. The main reason was they weren't selling well in Japan. The 105 uses 45mm aluminum and for Hatori to keep the price down he would have had to buy enough tubing to last for 3 years at the current usage. So we are alive and well to fill your mufflers needs.

Aw come on, you can't say this wasn't fun or funny.

The slip up probably boosted business like Obama callin' for gun control!
