Nice video! It looks and sounds really cool. I got a little UMX jet some time ago, but the short flying time is pretty annoying.

Yes, but the problem is a lot of that money just seems to disappear. Trillions in taxes yet our infrastructure continues to crumble. Our streets should be paved with gold.

A loose muffler makes a nasty mess. The exhaust isn't going where you want it and the backpressure and vibration can do a fair amount of damage to mating surfaces,threads, etc. If possible, I would...
