Depends on the servo arm length and deflection. If you go 1,75 and high throw you need something between 400-500 in/oz.

I use 2 inch arms on mine, it's fine over 25 hours of flight same abuse as Jase. Now Ailerons is another story.

I weighed my model and total weight with pipe is around 8.700gr~19lbs, a bit heavy for me.

So I decided to remove the pipe setup and install a std muffler on my DA-60.

With the modification I easily shift my CG forward and also I make my plane a lot lighter around 400gr~0,9lbs with the silcon extension of the pipe outlet. Please check the diffrence in weight both in oz and gr.

I will keep my LiPo packs as they are for now, but I will place a bit heavier spinner too. I strongly believe that with the modifications the plane will fly like an "arrow" please don't confuse it with W.Matt's Arrow F3A plane ...but its penetration and tracking will be improved. As far as the rpm is concerned, well I can live with less rpm on a lighter plane with less wing loading and better balanced .

The manifold, teflon connector and clips are attached. You have to weigh the whole setup not just the pipe...

You can also use a Vess balance ring on the prop to add a little weight up there with the added benefit of easy prop/hub/spinner balancing.

I'd just do it the old fashioned way of using thick card stock to transfer the hole location onto the cowling.

The stock muffler provides plenty of power. I added a pipe to meet noise restrictions as the GP stock muffler is very loud.

I believe that the stock muffler provides enough power. Here is a comparison between DA 70 and DA 60. Another great video by Jase.


Check hover pull out at 3:07 DA 70 vs DA 60. Both engines with stock mufflers.;-)
