Come on Scott. You think I’m that stupid? If I were any character from that show, it would certainly be Van Driesen.

Peace, baby!

Problem is that the current rules proposal does not allow for any add-on systems. Only a complete ready to fly aircraft system from the manufacturer that is electronically "Tamper Proof" and certified by the FAA. 100% of everything that we now own would be illegal.

I sure hope everyone has made their comments on this rule.

I don't think they'll go that route. A tamper proof receiver with built in transponder could be implemented into the current airborne systems, but I'd walk away from the hobby if this was forced onto the RC hobbyist. Autonomous UAV / Drones, I can understand the need for a transponder, so real world aircraft can see it on their TCAS, and ATC or course, But for us RC pilots that fly from designated sites, and are mostly confined to a relatively small airspace, I think it's ridiculous to impose. Now I fly from a site that is less than a mile from a GA airport, you can be certain, that system will be inserted directly without any petroleum jelly

I am from a different country, although we always seem to follow in the footsteps of the U.S. whether good or bad. I do occasionally fly control line in the US. Would a Single transponder not be good enough to just have One at the flying field as a warning to full scale pilots?

No, Autonomous UAV / Drones fly can easily encroach on real world aircraft airspace, so in those cases the transponder would have to be onboard the model, so the TCAS can pickup the TS signal and alert the RW pilot of its vicinity, so collision avoidance can be implemented by the RW pilot.

This thread sure took a turn south!

Back on subject. Has anyone tried the Dub Jett in-cowl mufflers?

I will have to measure but that might be the best high-end solution.

I Have. I put a Turbo Jett muffler on an OS AX95 in the cowl of a CAP 232. The performance gain over the stock muffler was a little shy of what you get with a Jett tuned muffler but it almost all fit in the cowl. I had to cut a small hole in the bottom of the cowl for the body of the muffler and obviously one for the outlet. Sorry I don't have any photos of it, but I built it for a friend. If you look on Dub's website there is a picture of a plane with one on it and a small part of the front of the muffler body is sticking out through the cowl, that is about what I had to do.
