Default RE: Extreme Flight 87" Yak 54 - Build & Fly

ORIGINAL: ten pillows

It does go sideways. I am using the stock DA50 muffler. Had to go so far forward to clear the front of the engine. Also, I am new at this, and as you can see no expert. When I recieved my cowl it had two very big cracks in it and when I called Chris he said he was sending a new replacement. I will try to be less invasive on the new one. Aren't you however, supposed to have twice to three times as much vent going out, as coming in? Thanks for your input. Any feedback is appreciated.

ten pillows
Tenpillows, If you "bologna cut" the exhaust at about a 30deg. angle, you won't have to slot your cowl for the exhaust.You can cut a nice neet round hole. the cut would start at 1 5/8" and end at 2 inches from the end.. I removed exactly 2 inches at the longest point. Knowing exactly where to put the hole in the cowl is an art.
