In cowl muffler build problem?
1 Attachment(s)
Hi Guys... :)

Im building a Kyosho F4U ARF, and have a problem fitting an in cowl (my build) into my model.
I used a commercial header and pitts style can muffler in my TF P51 that works a treat. Unfortunately there is no room in my F4U as per the attached drawing.

Has anyone done this? All your idea's and comments are appreciated.

Key to the drawing...
  • Cyan - Glass firewall of F4U.
  • Red - Glass filled motor mounts.
  • White - ASP 61 Aii engine.
  • Magenta - Self made header.
  • Yellow - Cowl mounting ring (Plywood).
  • Green - First cut at a muffler outline.
  • Dark Blue - Cowl extremity.

I don't think I completely understand. Does the exhaust HAVE to exit the bottom center? Can't you just move the muffler over to where the engines header is?

looks to me you could just turn that muffler around and conect to the header

Thanks for your replies Guys...

Im used to building headers and exhaust systems for larger aircraft, so this little F4U was a bit of a challenge.

I have opted to bite the bullet and spend $$ on a J-Tec pitts style muffler, connected directly to the exhaust of the .61.
