Inside a muffler

Have you ever wondered how a muffler works, and how it looks inside?

Well I have, first I look on the internet to find some information on how it works, I found this useful information How a muffler works
. Then I thought! how about a muffler for my nitro engine how does that looked like inside. Luck has it that I had an old Funtech muffler that I did throw in the garbage can, and now I could find out how it looked inside.

Here is a RC Helicopter muffler cut right over. You can see how the air is traveling in the muffler.

That is how a muffler looks like inside.

I was out flying with my new Hatori muffler the other day. There is a better noise reduction compare to the Funtech muffler, The Hatori is a bit longer then Funtech.
The construction of the Hatori seem better, I did not even have to tighten the mount screws after my flights with a newly mounted Hatori muffler. That’s a first.

Then I removed some weights from my paddles, it is amazing how responsive a Freya 90 Evo can be. :)


The big weekend

Well the competition weekend is coming up this weekend, I have been practicing a bit but not as much as I would I liked, time and weather has been against me. However, I think I will mange, although the weather for the weekend is not looking good, it’s going to be about 7m/s wind, and that is not good.

One of the great thinks about this competition is that I do not have to panic, the most important think in the competition is that we have a fun time together and that we learn something for the next time, well that is the attitude I am going with any way :)

To show you the maneuvers that I have to fly, you can see the video I have recorded with my Phoenix RC simulator, you can read about the maneuver here, but I am not that happy with the result in the video, I do actually think that I fly better with a real helicopter. I just got the Phoenix RC simulator. and you can expect a review of the simulator in near feature on my main site.
