That would be an interesting to see if it could be possible.....

I have not used that system yet, however, I have a Freewing Sound Module system modified into my larger FMS 1400mm Zero A6M2 .....luckily one of the last v1 series available that was installed in their first release of their 1400mm P51D Mustang with the unsuitable Radial engine sound of the Zero

This system is too big to fit into the smaller 1100 size range and not sure MrRC product will too.... but I stand corrected if his latest available hardware has downsized.

The cost of installing MrRC is also perhaps over the cost of the model too which is another issue to consider.

In saying that..... it is a coincidence that you have posted on this topic, as I have just finished developing and installing my Mechanical Clicker Sound Generator system on my old Campaign weary, crashed and broken up many times, weathered and worn Mk24 of the 1st release March/April 2013 series vintage and part of the initial contributions to this thread.

It is a twin system this time and the latest in the development in this simple "Boyhood" device I used to use on Baby Boomer bicycle spokes like many other of us in that era to make our deadly treadlies sound like they had motors

I have it developed on my Dynam Tiger Moth, Durafly SE5A and HK Retro Pioneer series model to give a vintage sound, however the Twin System I have on the Mk24 gives it a reasonable sound on Idle and low revs and a louder high pitched whine scream at higher power settings

NO it does not sound like a Merlin or Griffin and that is NOT what I am not trying to achieve on this model so I mention this to stop my embarrassment to some here

My main intention to install it was the fact that my latest conversion to the Durafly 5B prop and matched silver motor of lower kV was operating as a lower Full Power RPM and with my finely balanced propeller it was almost and totally silent in operation in the air at anything over 100m distant.

You just could not hear what the Engine was doing and that also related to the illusion that it was not flying fast enough....even though its upgraded performance on the 5B combo setup was high enough to sustain unlimited vertical to out of LOS control ability

So now I can hear what the motor is doing and that makes a big difference in my power management and realistic feedback like it does on my vintage type sound installations.

I am just editing a new vid I shot yesterday of the Mk24 with this "Noise" system installed...but in the meantime here for entertainment are the recent video productions of my FMS Zero for those of you that have not seen them yet which appears as a cameo in my Mk 24 footage.

I will post it here in a few hours after I have finished the edit and upload to my channel.

I have Mr. RC Sound but I'm not sure that the card can fit inside the fuse. Maybe if you cut out slots running along each side. The newer transducer versus the speaker might fit but on this plane , you'll have to closely consider the cg.
