I just ordered 2.

JB definately knows his stuff. On the first one, I am going to use the engine/electrics out of an old Kalt. It has a OS .46, and John has a special hub to utilize that engine. I doubt you can get that kind of flexbility anywhere else. With soft dampers, it will be a smooth sport flyer. For $150, I replace the Kalt with a better bird.

I would imagine the Kalt will bring in some money on EBay for someone needing parts.

The second kit, at some point in the future when I have money, will get a .70 or .90, hard dampers, and will be serious fun.

This is pretty much a deal you can't pass by.

No crashes for my first one. With the soft dampers and the little .46 OS, it will just fly slow and gentle.

Now the second one, with a .90, I figure it will end up in a crater, in a zillion pieces.

You might be surprised how well it flies with the 46FX-H engine in it. Believe me it won't be a pussy cat. I know because we've flown plenty of Tiger 50s with that engine and it flew just fine. Maybe a little low on power for tick-tocks, but easily enough for piroflips, hurricanes, and any type of sport maneuvers, e.g. loops, rolls, flips and tumbles, and backwards flight!

I think the .46 will be fine. The Pantera is only a few Oz's heavier then the Kalt. With the soft dampers and the 620 carbons, I bet it is going to hover great. Time to put an F3C box in the backyard.

By the way, got the tracking number.

Thanks John.

If you are ready for your first nitro you cant pass this deal up. Buy two and get in on the deal.

Build one and keep the other for spare parts. This greatly reduces the pucker factor when learning to fly knowing you have all the parts you need to recover from the inevitable.

Plus starting with a full set of spares is a great way to begin this hobby its also a good investment.

Just add up the cost of these parts below break all of these over time and you can more than justify buying two Pantera's during this sale.

Frame set, Main Gear, Tail drive belt, Tail boom Support, Main Shaft, Landing gear struts, Radio Platform

Although your not likely to break all of these in a single crash as the Pantera is as tough as any but after all just like the real thing they were designed for flying not crashing.

Its a good practice to keep spares on hand rather than wait until you need them. And to replace them as you use them.

It doesn't get any better than this.

See you at the field

Bob

I can't think of a better deal for someone to start on. A lot easier then something like a little Blade 400.

Put in the soft dampers, take you time, and before you know it, you will be doing a nose-in hover. Then the fun really starts.

Having another kit is great for crash parts, but there is no way I can have the second kit just sitting in a box. That one is going to be a hot rod. BBC and Hard dampers. Pitch limits set to the max.

But I have time to think, as I have spent enough for this month.

I've been looking at them on and off for a while. I've always wanted to try one but I just never picked one up.

They seem like a very nice heli.'s so I might pick a couple up... For the BBC is their a kit or do you have to buy the parts seperate. I've looked around on the site and havent seen the kit's only part's marked "BBC".

I don't crash... I land with style

The BBC is a seperate kit with a mount and hardware for a bigger engine.

I keep thinking about a .90, but that is a bit of overkill. I will probably use an OS .70 for the second one. It will probably still be an insane rocket.

I think John likes to talk to people buying the BBC to make sure they have an engine that will work, and to make sure they know what they are doing.

I would imagine that an 8 lb machine with a 90 isn't a good idea for a newbie.

If I had a YS91SR laying around, I wouldn't hesitate.

Yes, but don't panic. JB has stated that making the snorkel and stabilizers an option has made the base kit more cost effective for most buyers. He did mention that alot of Pantera owners never seem to install these parts even when they came as standard. To me in the end it doesn't really matter. This sale is so good if you opt to buy these extra item you're so far ahead its still a screaming deal. Mine are on the way!!!

TT

I don't do 3D....no wait. Oh thats right, I can't do 3D!

Brown1957, if thats really an issue for you, you can have mine. This is exactly what John should do. They're just wasted parts on me and I bet I'm not alone. It does fly in the face of John touting just how incredibly important the snorkel/filter is but I totally agree with taking them out of the kit. If you cant charge more for a kit, you have to reduce the kit's cost. I commend him for the move.

John did mention this, in this very forum when the sale was announced.

I for one love both features, but I can't find any fault in the decision, just look at Marty's reply. I think it's daft to run an engine without a filter, but hey, who am I?

(Dang, forgot that was a big selling point for me in my last 'soapbox' post...)

DAMN THIS SALE!

... On the first one, I am going to use the engine/electrics out of an old Kalt. .....

Now I won't be 'the pantera guy' in Colorado! LOL

Plus I can't justify two more Pantera, nor can I justify NOT getting two more Pantera!!! arghghg! IBM hasn't fired me yet, maybe the 4cyl conversion is back in plan.....
