Default Tuned Pipe Fixing Question / Prop Size !!!!!!

Hi Guys

Just a quick question as this is my first tuned pipe, im upgraded my engine on my Tigershark from a standard 46 engine to a Rossi 53 with a Full Length Rossi Tuned Pipe as shown in pic below....... as the 46 didnt give me enought speed....... so hopefully this set up will work a bit better....., also can anyone suggest what size prop i should run on this set up ????

My question is how do u fix the tuned pipe on to the fuse ??? by looking at most pics it just shows cable ties ????? is that correct ? and i gather they go throu the fuse side and out onto the pipe ?????? as u can see i havent done this before........

Any help would be grateful Thx in advance

In the UK, I'm not sure, but in the States, I'd say a Dave Brown or Mac's tuned pipe mount for a few bucks. Check your local hobby shop. Some type of mount you screw to the fuselage and zip-tie the mount to must be available.

Try a 9-7 Zinger in the wood prop. I don't know what the 53 will turn.

Here's a wood one you can make for nothing. When you put the wing
on....it holds the pipe in place.
