Well, I broke down and have gone more into debt by ordering a Pantera from John. I originally thought I would retire one of my Tigers for awhile but have revisited the idea and will build the Pantera up with new components. If everything goes well I'll be tearing up the Northern skies with my Pantera in the next few weeks.

How many other Canadian Pantera owners are there out there?

Not to slag another heli manufacturer but I began the build of my Raven 50 V2 last night. I can't believe how complicated things are made. The design looks really nice but man my hat's off to John for the excellent manual he produced for the Tiger - along with the addendums. the Century manual seems to be lacking a little in my opionion, especially since this is an updated (twice) Raven.

Anyway, will soon be adding to the "Who's flying their Panteras this weekend?" thread.

Herc, Once you get your Pantera and you drink the "KOOL-AID"! your doomed! This also goes to Walleye..Boys, When you mix up the drink. Don't forget to toss a Hyper 50 in the mix, and use a nice set of CF blades to stir. If you need any help we are here to help. But the only call I would expect is the cry of YEEEEEE HAAAA! The bird builds that well.

My name is Billm. Cough, and I'm a Heli Holic

After reading the manual Im not frightened!!! I was also told that Audacity has the parts packed in with same area parts... unlike some who put 500 pieces in a plastic sack and say good luck :-)

I'm sure the Pantera will pretty much build itself. After building or rebuilding 4 or 5 Tigers I'm sure it will be easy. Unlike this stinkin' Raven. Can't finish the lower frames because you need the engine first. Looks like you have to take half the heli apart to get at the engine too. Good thing it's going in a scale bird and it won't have to come out too often.

Should have the shop all ready after this weekend. Just trying to find some half decent flooring. Looked at some anti fatique type stuff tonight but it has little holes all through it. That wouldn't go well with the amount of stuff I drop while building.

Cheers, Shayne

Edit: Forgot to mention that I ordered two Hyper 50s today and I've got some Rotortecks and Razors on standby for the mixing. One cool thing about the Raven is it came with silver fiberglass blades that look great on the Hughes!

AJ,

You'll be part of the club soon enough. Good luck with your studies. Don't get too distracted by this toy stuff.

Cheers, Shayne
