    AI printed one of those yesterday, and it whistles fine. If yours isn't, you want to make sure the air split (wedge hole) is clean and sharp, and that you don't have a lot of stringy stuff in the air path slowing the air down.

    Yeah judging by the external strings I'm gonna guess there's some internally that are slowing down the flow.

    we really need a 'boo this' or rotten tomato launcher button.

    I haven't printed one of these for my daughters yet, and I will at the projected expense of my own sanity, but the comments on it talk about people having trouble with it not whistling and correcting by cutting out the strings.
