Default Engine sounds for park flyers

Hi,

I remember coming across a link one time to small speakers that made engine sounds. They were pretty small and not as big as the Real Radial Engine sound
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXJDU0&P=7
looking for something that would fit in a GWS warbird or similar.

Any one got a link or a hint as to what they are called?

Cheers!

Forget it. It's just not going to happen. You need a big bird and have to carry a lot of weight to support a system big enough to be heard in flight.

Strange as I know I have seen an ad for the little electric buzzer type speakers. Parkflyers don't get very far away so they wouldn't need to be super loud.

I'll keep searching.

Rc Universe has a long and sucessfull thread that is working very well.

Parts, #'s and weights with pictures. They have really dug into it.

Hey now, slight tangent, but; there's a guy at our local field who's into antique style airplanes, Bleriots, and the like. He builds these beautiful models and flys them with s400 motors and the old Olympus 2.33:1 gear drives. The sound they make is really very cool on these models, makes them sound just like old long stroke engines with slightly loose valves; clackity, clackity clack...
I know, not quite on topic, but cool never the less...

ps. Myself I just mumble engine noises as I fly; vrrroooom putt putt vrroooom...:p

Hey now,
I'm really glad I'm not the only one to admit to this I know other folks do it, standing on the flight line I often hear guys going "rrrrrrrroooooommm" and sometime "dadadadada" like gun fire as they fly up behind another warbird...

On these small light weights, the old --Prop hitting the correct size and thickness stick should work very well. You can use more than 1 stick if you have the power. Noisey and simple.
I used a seperate motor and 12 sticks for a V 12 boat engine sound. They were mounted in a oversized pop riveted Aluminum Echo Box. Pretty good engine sound compared to nothing.

Hey now,
On the line of guys making their own motor noises; I was at our field yesterday and "the new guy" who's just starting to learn (and doing *great*!) was standing next to me while we were both flying and I heard him muttering "Ta pocketa ta pocketa ta pocketa." Great. We have Walter Mitty at our field... almost scarey, almost cool...
