I've heared that the standard muffler keeps coming loose...... and you don't want to detach the cowl every few flights I guess .

I think that DLE canister is the best choise for me, I'll order it soon. I don't wont weaken further my Firewall box only for install the standard muffler, another advantage using canister is that cowl does not must be cutted for exaust dump.

Flew mine 5 flights Saturday. DLE40 with smoke. Still getting the new engine dialled in but flew great. Couples a little in KE but nothing major. Didn't try hovering but has good power. I'm running a Xoar 20x8 sword prop. 7k or so on the ground and unloads to almost 10k. Rips the prop just a little out of a shallow dive. Running 215 degrees with no baffling.

After about 30 flights I notice that the revs are going up at full power, I think it is about time to switch to a 20x8 prop.

Dropped the 19x10 Falcon and went back to the 20x8 for better breaking in down lines. Top speed still ok. Currently seeing 7800 rpm on ground. Head temp 90 degree C, no baffling. After 2 gallons the engine picked up additional 500 rpm and runs great with a nice transition from idle to wot and vice versa. I did change the original carbon undercarriage from Pilot through an aftermarket solution. The original feels quite flimsy and is to weak for that size of plane in my opinion. It also showed some tiny cracks on its surface after a couple of landings.

Where did you get the aftermarket LG.
I agree the Pilot LG is too weak for the weight of this plane.
Mine developed cracks after the first few landings.

Got it from here

It is the 26- 35cc Version. Perfect fit and way more rigid. Also a bit wider so the tracking on ground feels better.
And cheaper as the original Pilot part

Cheers
