Smoke system for .46 engine?

I am thinking about getting a smoke system for my Super decathlon. I am running a magnum xls .52 engine on it. I looked around for smoke systems, but can't find anything for smaller sized engines. Everything is for big scale stuff. I also so some weird pyrotechnic stuff, but that lloked dangerous and hoaky. Any info would be great. I also checked macspro.com but their site is not working.

Happy flying!

Small engines don't normally produce enough heat in the exhaust to make a worthwhile smoke trail. Pyrotechnics (as per the link Kevin posted) would obviously work fine, but are more expensive.

Thanks for the site, but I saw that stuff in my searches. It seems kind of dangerous and hoaky to me. I would like something I can control. If a .52 can't produce smoke well then I won't pursue it. Thanks all.
