I tested the Carbon Rear Muffker with K77.
This was made by H.Kiyomoto who is a Carbon Fiver specialist
As compared to the normal of the muffler, I was impressed with the reliable power-up.
I like this very much.
Sound level is almost same but the tone is a little different.

I have started building the third BM Eternal from RSM kit.

The new77 engine will be equipped on this one and I am going to build it as a one piece model for lightweighting.

Because I dislike the painting of the fuselage of the one piece model, the fuselage intends to assemble it after painting it individually and glue together with wing & stabilizer after it.
