Hi!
A CL plane is not balanced the way a R/C plane is. C of G is much more forward on a CL plane. R/C planes are mostly balanced at 25-30 % of the wing cord.

Hi!
Is it just a "muffler" you are after or is it a "Magic Muffler"?? A "Magic muffler" is a short tuned pipe, like the one Nelson and Jett uses for their .40 engines.
