Default EXHAUST COOLERS

Do exhaust coolers give you longer runtime ?
If so by how much?

if they do its probably measured in seconds but i am a firm believer that that do help keep a consistant engine tune.

Be smart and use the search function, there are already many topics about this also with a test in a RC heli.

I swear by them! I picked up a Novarossi cooler on Ebay last year for real cheap, so I figured, what the hell, I'll give it a try. And despite all the negative junk I've read about them on various forums, they actually do work. They only give you about 30 sec. more runtime per tank, but on some tracks, that's an extra lap! Every little bit helps!

FYI - one piece of advice I heard in regards to the topic.

"If you are going to take the time to make sure the fuel isn't getting warm from the top, make sure it's not getting cooked from the bottom"

Point being, use aluminum tape and put some on the side of the tank and the bottom to insulate it from the pipe.
