Is there a way (besides shooting it impossibly fast) to make an elite dart whistle. If so please reply with a guide. Thanks!

Wear a low cut dress when you're near it, and it might whistle at you.

A quick test revealed that you can make an elite whistler, although it requires higher speeds and produces a less noticeable whistle. This is probably because the head has less airspace inside of it. By cutting a rectangular hole in the side of the dome (just like a normal whistler has) the elite dart can produce an audible whistle at relatively low speeds. I don't currently have any information on the max/min speed, how hole placement affects the noise, or range/accuracy changes. Logically there would be a decrease in range and accuracy if your darts are modified in this way, but i have no proof.

LMAO!

Maybe making a slight bigger hole in the tip on both sides like a real Whistler it might work.

As newt said, the whistle is less pronounced than actual whistler darts. The holes i have made are as large as they can be, with the bottom resting flush with the base of the head and the top sitting flush with the top layer of rubber of the head.

I fired it a few times from my modified firestrike, which I've chrono'd at 100fps. At short ranges i could barely register the whistle, but at longer ranges it was a little more pronounced. Again, the whistle was much less pronounced than an actual whistler dart.

I think you should not be pursuing this idea. The whistle is not prominent enough to be of any actual use. Creating the hole degrades accuracy and consistency of said dart. Although muzzle velocity is unaffected, flight dynamics are drastically altered.

I've heard my unmodified elite darts whistle often when fired from modified, and unmodified guns. Expanding the hole seems like it would produce the effect more often.
