Does any one else do it? My wife says I display buyers remorse...

So, I feel like I'm still trying to 'catch up' with the heli side of R/C, too many years I missed out due to my initial bad experiance with my Shuttle Z. I've been doing a lot of studying/reading on helis out there because I can't say "I've owned 10 brands and 30 different helis so I KNOW"

Point is, after all the research I've been doing the last six months since I decided what heli I'd go with, I am still 100% convinced the Pantera 50 is the right machine for me. May not be right for everyone, but holy crap it's a great design. I don't mean it's the BEST at this or that, but as a total package for the price, unbelievable. I guess in that, it's the best at being a total package! I've taken to reading heli assembly manuals, while I see some interesting things, I always end up being glad I have two Audacity Pantera at home.

Maybe I'm having to post this because I've been stuck out of state for a week with just my mx400 to fly and after a glass of wine tonight, totally missing flying the 'twins'. Well, hopefully I can get some time in Sunday when I get back, if I'm not too tired.

Nice knowing I made the right purchase this time, just had to get that out....

Don't drink and fly!
The Pantera is a great ship from "mild to wild".

I actually suffer from reverse Buyer's Remorse. I went from a Blade CP, to a MX400 Pro, to a Raptor 30V2, and finally a Pantera 50. Now I sit here looking at my fleet thinking, "Why didn't I come upon the Pantera 50 first????" Had I bought the Pantera 50 first, I would have saved a ton of money and been very happy. Now I have one heli I fly all the time, and three just sit and collect dust. I am actually thinking about selling off the other helis.

I know your pain. Look on the good side.
You can get another Pantera. Strip all the electronics and motor from the the other birds and sell the guts.
Now you have everything you need to get your Pantera fleet up and flying.

Keep the Raptor you will regret selling that one. Get rid of those electric toys you have though

I love my pantera but I wouldn't sell my raptor for anything in the world. I took the electronics out of my raptor to get my pantera in the air thats been a year now. Shows you which I like more but I just cannot bear the thought of selling my raptor I think it is going to be my winter project getting it ready for next season. Poor rappys been sitting there with her nose in the corner I've been too occupied with my new girlfriend ummm I mean Pantera

ENGAGE!!
