Aloha fellow Pantera owners. I just wanted to share a few minor mods to improve airflow and cooling on a hot day. I drilled the canopy with a stepped bit top and bottom. Does it work? Who knows. Any improvement in airflow to the electronics and airfilter can't be bad when it really warm out. I also included a pic of our private field. The owner was nice enought to fire up his old grader and make us a grass runway...for free. BTW, the holes probably won't force in more air but my idea is as the heli is in FFF the vacuum created in the canopy sucks in cooler air. Hey I'm no engineer but if sounded cool.

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

NICE MOD!
Do you see any "dipping" in FF as the air gets under the canopy?

the cat wants to know.

Got in only two tanks today. Weather was perfect. I made a quick landing as the tail was getting very loose and I had some mean vibrations. I need to do a tear down to figure this one out. When the headf spooled down there was a patch of harsh vibrations then it went away as the rotor speed bled off. Everything looked ok on the surface.

Took the head apart last night and reoiled and flew her today. No vibration..strange. No dipping under FFF as far as I can see. Burned one tank to shake her down. I can't wait to try the promuffler I ordered. The stock TT pipe is choking off the 50SXH.
