Default i4cproducts

Stingray;
i4cproducts.com has both the whistles (two sizes) and
the best screaming siren around. I have them all and they
work great.
Call them and ask for Ron, he will send you what you need...

I'll vote for the Air Whistles.
Took my Shrike out this morning for the first try/out of these whistles and was pleasantly surprised.I could hear them even far out and at all times,even when the engine was cut for landing. If placed in the rite place you'll be very satisfied.

I've tried the toy store junk.They are not worth a dime,But the I4C whistles work like a charm.I was running an LA40 which is somewhat a quiet engine but if the things are in the rite place you'll hear them regardless.

I'm sold and will get some more.

Just thought I'd report

Default RE: Air whistles

The secret is where you put them.The other guy had only one on a fast Patriot and it didn't sound near like mine did.I did put one on each underside of each wingtip,they have to be close to 90 degree to the wind flow or close to it.Mine are like and inch and a half from the leading edge bout an inch and a half from the wing tip.They really sounded off.

As far as the sirens,the pix that's on the I4C site shows a guy holding one in his hand.Heck,it's almost as large as his hand. I fly 40-60 size stuff and this siren looks way to big.It's not a little thingy,it's big from what I see.I don't know where you put em' but it'd take a heck of a thick wing to fit this in....I don't know,maybe I'm looking at it wrong.

Thanx
Walt

I second all that!!!! I bought the I4C Air whistles for my Patriot. Installed them on the underside of the wings about an inch from the leading edge about 8" in from the wing tip.

Work a charm!!!! Gets heads turning, and many questions asked!
And if you cut 1/8th of an inch off of one of the whistles, you get the two tone turbine sound!!!!!! it's great!!!!!!!

Just make sure you get them facing the airflow, and they're the right way round, and stuck in well!



Any questions???????

Get one of those footballs that whistle and cut those plastic things out and put them on the plane somewhere maybe in the aileron so only when you turn it will whistle. And its cheap.

I like the idea of using two whistles of slightly different frequency to get that turbine sound. Does anyone out there have a video or sound clip that shows this? Must sound wicked cool.
