I am using the P-51 exhaust on my H-9 60 with Saito 100 and it works great. I also have their system on a Saito 182 twin, very scalelike.

Does the exhaust system allow the engine to breath enough?

I've noticed virtually no tuning differences between the keleo and a stock muffler, especially since they started putting pressure taps on all thier mufflers.

They sound cool but invest in windex and towels while your breaking in the motor, they get oil all over the damn plane,

I had Kelvin make a ring for my Saito 450r. It was a little different then what he usually does and I think I cost myself a few rpm. The ring itself is a work of art and the craftsmen ship is excellent. Currently I am waiting for Kelvin to make a scale muffler for my Platt Zero using a OS 160fx. Highly recommended but I think he is in high demand and short on time. I think you will be very impressed.

Going to put one of his mufflers on my H9 P-47.....sure beats the current set-up Replacing the Evol. .61 with Saito 91 or 1.00.

Here's the exhaust Keleo built for the GP P-6e ARF. Very Nice. He made the same stacks for all engines, but has made the lower half for OS FS-120, Saito, and the RCV which I have. Sounds like a multi-cylinder engine and does not have any effect on power. I haven't run mine with the cowl on, but I'm ready to have to clean up the sides!

SSeward!

Excellent RCV application!

Now I see your using silicone tubing, on the stacks! How's that working out? Does it get to hot?

Also, is the rear portion of the exhaust mounted to the engine box? I can't tell from your picture, but look like there's not much support in the front exhaust stacks.

This is the exact application that I want to do with my 90 size Spitfire! The RCV engine will let me swing a 4 bladed prop!

Anyone using a RCV SP 90 on a sixty size warbird, with this exahust! Love to see the pictures!

Thanks guys for hte pictures!

These are actually pictures Keleo took. I received the first RCV unit and I'm really impressed. It does indeed mount to the top of the box using brackets that are welded to the stacks. I haven't run the unit on the plane but I imagine the silcone will hold out. This is one well thought out setup! I went RCV on this plane to swing a big 3-blade (15.75X13) and to minimize cowl cutting. This is really a cool application. Here's the picks of the loose components before I mounted them. If you check the P-6e thread here in warbirds Kelvin (Keleo) uploaded the instructions in PDF.

My experience with Kelvin has been excellent. He has made me a Yellow Aircraft T-6 exhaust for my Brisson 5.8. I've ordered his front ring for my Saito 325 and look forward to receiving it.

Thanks guys for all the positive feedback, you all make it worth all the effort I put into this business. By the way, that silicone tubing will take temperatures up to 500 degrees so there should be no problems.

Okay, Kelvin as soon as Uncle Sam get "MY" money back to me, which should be any day! I'll call you!

Looking at somthing for my O.S. 160 twin on my H9 182 and probably a scale exhaust for a O.S. 91 on a World Models Spitfire!

He's got an exhaust for the FT-160. Brings it down into two pipes together that will come out the bottom. I'm gonna use it for my Stinson Reliant.....or the new TF Staggerwing!

SSeward,

I know he's got something already, but I need to have the exhaust come straight back, then down and out, inline with each cylinder. Remembering a Cessna 182 is a trigear and you need the exhaust to go either side of the nosegear.

Ooops, sorry dont do one for the World Models. If they hadnt put the dummy stacks in the cowl I would consider an exhaust for all the World models kits. But the dummy stacks go way beyond the firewall and I'm not going to design something that the end user is going to have to hack up his plane to install. Hope you understand. Grin.

I considered the Felo for a Top Flite ARF P-51 and got a picture of the exhaust mounted on a ZDZ-50 . When I anxiously showed this set up using their ZDZ 50 NG he stated it would void the warrenty. What a bummer for me as Ithink the TF Mustang and a ZDZ50 are made for each other and the Kelo scale exhausts[]

Ramcfarland, I'm running a zinger 20x12 prop right now.(only because that's what I had on hand to fit). It flys it well enough to do big loops. The weather here has been windy or rain so the plane only has 4 flights on it as of now. Hope to put some more on it soon. My crowd and I went to Florida to Deland and it was the same as home, windy and/or rain ,so no flights there either.

Here are a few pictures take down there. They were scanned from film so the detail isn't the best. The exhaust streaks are painted on, but the cool thing is the exhaust streaks are getting darker and more oilylooking on the plane. In other words more real looking. In fact some of the other modelers as me about my weather technics. I tell them there isn't any, it's just a cool exhaust and really cheap paint. Also the engine isn't broken in fully so it should stop blowing so much oil as it breaks in. Maybe by then it will look like it's been though a war and back.

BTW that Bud Nosen P-51 wing behind my stang makes mine look small.

Beautiful application of scale exhaust guys, but using glow motors, you'd better prepare to purchase a case of Windex and ammonia to keep the sides of your airplanes clean. Why not make up an exhaust that will expell the exhaust beneath the airplane and not be visible while the plane is sitting on the ground or flying by at 80mph? Now if you're not going to fly this plane a lot, then by all means go with the scale exhaust if that's what you like, but if she's going to be a flier, I'd want to keep the exhaust off the airplane as much as possible. Just one man's opinion, but I hate that oily gook all over my airplanes.
