Model whistle anybody?


Recommended Posts

I have been thinking about fitting some sort of whistle to one of my EDF Jets.

 

Many moons ago they used to be advertised...................but no more.

 

Anybody any idea where I could get one please?.

 

Tried making a "Nerf" type whistle...................dismal failure!.

Have look at the Whistling (Foam?) Toy Rocket/Footballs on ebay & Amazon.

They feature the surface mount whistle.

There are a few cheap ones among the eye watering expensive ones being offered!

When permitted, I have dropped these from a model and they really do whistle quite audibly.

Not sure they match a jet sound though????

I have one fitted to my Habu . They were cast in a light alloy with a rubber end that could be moved to alter the tone of the whistle. It only works at certain speeds though ie upper mid range . To be honest they did sound that good and become annoying. I did have another one somewhere in my workshop, if I find it I will let You know and you can have it.

E.D.

Thanks chaps.

 

I am holding out that ED can find one in his workshop!.

 

Failing that, I'll have to trawl marketplace and see if I can find a cheepo "Nerf dog howler" and remove the relevant bits.

 

Odd that they do not seem to be sold individually by people like Banggood etc!.
