I have two RCGF 15's, one in an enlarged Hots Hot (180cm) and one in a 1/4 scale Stephens Akro. I use a 14*10 prop. Is it noisy? long is a piece of string? The included muffler is not the best! I have the pitts silencer fitted to mine and they do a slightly better job. You can fit a pepper pot to the outlet pipe(s), which helps with the 'bark' if you can live with a loss of top end RPM .

Biggest drawback in my view is the radial mounting is a bit vulnerable to breakage in the event of a heavy nose over or 'arrival' and that means a new crankcase to fix it.

Hi all, why are petrol 2 strokes so much noisier than a glo engine ? Is it just because the petrol engine silencer is not as good as a glo engine ?
Thanks all,

They tend to be larger CC they also usually have naff "silencers" which is a waste of money, might as well not supply it, heard plenty of noisy glows mind.

Evolution 10cc comes with a similar silencer to modern glows, the noise is very little and got an inoffensive tone to it.

Ive got 3 15cc ones. You might remember the Eflite Carbon Cub from last year- that had one. Have another in a Seagull T-28 Trojan, the medium one and a Yak 54 from Graupner.
