I bought those worthless whistles and tried them. I put that into my U Can Do 60 with OS 90FX, hoping to get some poor man turbine sound. Only time I heard the whistling sound was when the plane goes dead stick. i.e. the damn whistles can barely be heard with the motor on, even though the muffler on OS Fx series is pretty quiet. Don't waste your money.

NOT TO DISAGREE , BUT I PUT THE SMALL ONES ON MY LANIER F4 PHANTOM WITH A 50SX. THEY SOUND AWESOME! I'M ALWAYS GETTING COMPLEMNETS ON THE WAY THEY SOUND. I SHORTENED ONE WHISTLE 1/8" TO CHANGE THE PITCH SLIGHTLY THEN MODEFIED THE OPENING TO A "D" SHAPE ON THE OTHER. THE SMALL WHISTLES WORK GREAT WITH THE MODS TO ABOUT 75-80MPH, THE LARGE ONES ARE NEEDED IF YOU WILL BE EXCEEDING THOSE SPEEDS...

They are a little price for what they cost to make, but I agree with you picard1. I have a F-4, F-20, patriot 40 ARF, and a Patriot XL with the whistles in them. Works great with a constant flow of air. Where you put them is the secret to sound and the mods that picard1 stated on the lenght. I have not made the D shape yet. Will that make them louder? I thought about getting the smaller one for the prop wash. I have the larger ones in the wings now. The louder the better

Freebird, can you post a pic of where you put the whistles on your F-20 and Pat? I have both and would like to do the same thing.
Thanks

Best place on most aircraft is just in front of the main wing spar, first or second wingbay from wingtips, bottom of wing. Satisfaction guaranteed or money back.

I wish I knew how. I have tried and tried to post some Pic, with no luck. If you can tell me how I will be glad too. I put the whistles where I4C noted. Just put the whistles on the bottom where they will get the most air on the wings near the tips. This will give you a constant sound with the greatest loudness. I used a drop of CA to hold them in place. I just wish I knew how the smaller ones done in the prop wash. I went to a club near by my club just to be friendly. I grab my Patriot 40 with some of my fellow members. I took off and they set puzzled to see a prop jet with that sound. Later I told them the secret. Hey, I4C, why want you send me a set of the smaller whistles to test in the prop wash. It will not cost you a thing for me to test them.

Thanks Vicman.

I found the trouble with posting photos, it was my browser. The Patriot was the first plane I put the whistles in. I put them to far back, but worked ok. I moved the whistles up more towards the leading edge on the F-20, and they are awesome. Hope this helps.

I mounted a whistle in both wings of my patriot in the same area as freebird1. Just a little further forward.
I've tried them on the tail end of the fuz of my Magnum, but they dont work as well as wing mounted.
I4c whistles get my vote.

I mounted mine on the fuse, thinking prop wash will give sound at lower speeds, but got hardly any sound. Seems that wing mount around CG spot is the way to go with these. Wish those guys at i4c makes that clear in the intructions so we don't waste time and punch holes in the fuselage.

A time ago, in a birthday party with my daughter, I found a toy that looks like a mouth with a rotary whistle inside. I collected 3 of them and took the whistle out. Piling them you can achieve a high pitch sound. I am trying to make a tunnel that forces air directly to the whistles with a expanded aft section.
I will post a picture ASAP.
