Default .10 engine

[link=http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXUJ71&P=0]Here's[/link] the engine I'm going to put in my scratch-built 36" WS P-51D Mustang. Is there anyone that makes a Pitts style muffler for an engine that small? I really don't want a huge muffler sticking out the side of my plane.

A pitts muffler for an engine of this size is a big order. Don't think that anyone makes a bolt on for it, let alone a strap on type. Could be wrong though.
"C.B. Tatone" has a strap on type manifold set up that may work for you. Check at Tower under the manufacturers listings.

Once upon a time I saw a guy showing off his pitts mufflers for the smaller engines in the 1/2a forum. Can't recall who it may be but you could ask around over there. Those guys know alot about the little stuff.

p.s. Better build that sucker light for the .10

Talking from exprience here.......
.10 engines are too heavy for their power output. Go with a .15 and you will be much happier. Just a few bucks more and lot's more power. And the weight is almost the same.
