Default Big Gasser Noise

I am doing some research trying to find out what is available to quiet down the big gas engines. The mufflers I am able to purchase don't seem to be doing the job. Flying sights are hard to come by and we all need to do what we can to silence the complainers. If anyone knows where these quiet mufflers can be found please let us all know. It may be time to accept a tiny bit less power and keep our fields and be good neighbors. If we don't this hobby is in jeopardy. I appeal to all manufacturers to help out. Thanks

Well, if you can, put cans on the engine, and use a 3 blade prop. probably wont get much quieter than that

You should just try a Mejzlik prop. My 3W 150 on Johnson mufflers is so quiet with one of those props that you almost cant hear it over sportflyers on the pattern. That H9 Edge might be a little hard to drop cans into.
