I would have posted this in the AudacityModels section but there didn't appear to be much activity in that section. I had the chance last week to fly a nitro heli and it was an absolute blast. So now I've got a bit of the nitro bug. Does anyone that has owned an AudacityModel have any feedback they'd be willing to share from their experience? I'm also open to thoughts about other nitro brands. Thanks.

If you do a “search “ you will find nothing but positive comments.....

Though I don’t own one , I wouldn’t hesitate getting one if I were looking for a 50 nitro....they have great parts support and great customer service...

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

there's also an option to install a .90 class engine. You do have to change the gearing but its pretty much unboggable

Got a Pantera recently. Haven't had a lot of flying time on it yet, due to a couple crashes (one was due to a sudden servo failure). Parts support is great, and fast. I'd have stayed with my 'ol Raptor, if the parts were available.
I'm just now trying out the 'redneck flybarless' head setup (can be a $0 change over). Note that there's been a recent switch to a new website - http://www.promodeler.com

The owner of Audacity can be a little, let's say, over the top about his products but in the end, him and his product is still standing when almost everyone that existed when he started has folded. If I start suddenly plowing all of my Raptors in, I'll be looking to the Pantera as my future workhorse nitro heli. I do own a Pantera P5 that has seem all sorts of upgrades. None were actually necessary but it's how I made it my own like we are all prone to do. John isn't lying when he say's his heli will groove in stock configuration. It probably can do hard 3D as well but where it really excels is in smoothness and drawing straight coordinated lines. It really does groove in that regard. I would not hesitate buying a P6.

One other thing: the Pantera (and predecessors) have belt drive tails, not fragile torque tube gears.

So is the Pantera more of a beginners heli?

I looked at their newer site (promodeler.com) and I didn't see any nitro engines. I think I only saw electric motors and gas engines.

The Pantera is a great heli. It can take you from beginner to 3D and in between. I've had mine for a year now and I'm very happy with it. I got the christmas deal last year with the promodeler servo package and they're great. Price point is a no brainer. Replacement parts are priced very nicely. The owner John is always very helpful and always available to help you with any questions or concerns. I'm thinking of getting another one. The heli has a lot of different ways it can be set up and it's strong as can be. If you crash it won't cost you the price of a new heli to fix it. I think you would be very happy with one.

As to the engine, for nitro, you'd have to get that somewhere else than Audacity.

One of my first Nitros years ago was a Pantera. It is a solid, good flying, easy to build heli. Great company support from the owner who always helped me personally. It's more of a smooth flyer, not a real 3d machine by today's standards. It's a good value and a great beginner to intermediate machine.

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

I imagine with the 90 size motor upgrade it would do pyro flips all day long.

It will do piro flips all day long with a 50 motor if you know how to do a piro flips !

You too can fly a Pantera like this if you have the skills!

Watch at YouTube

I can do Pyros at least a few in a row but I certainly don't fly like Kyle. Nice video. I watched it on my phone so the video was small. I'm guessing he was flying a Pantera.

Yes, he was flying a Pantera.... that’s why I posted it . There are more Pantera videos on YouTube if you care to search for them ....
