Default Prop jet...

Here I go again... Changing my next project subject for the umpteenth time ... I hope this question is OK in this forum. If it needs redirecting, please offer the best forum in your opinion. Thanks.
I think I am going to build a GP Phantom F4 next... I have an Enya 60XF needing a home. My question is, what type of muffler/silencer/tuned pipe should I put on with the least amount of impact to the model lines (I know it is a prop jet, but) and my wallet? Thank you for your offers...

Default heavy

Those GP Phantoms are super nice kits but I think the Enya-60 would be to small

Some folks have used an OS-91FX, or a Jett-90- (Hard on pocketbook..)

DO a search for "GP Phantom" and that should help also-

See if one of those "ultra thrust" type mufflers would fit. I
think it might give the best performance, and not kill the
lines of the plane to bad....

MVVS

Why don't you try the MVVS .77? I have one in a GP F-14 with a 11x10 and full length quiet pipe and I find it pretty fast and quiet. Try it you might like it they are very reasonably priced.
