Curious to know how the P6 "upgrade" compares with the straight Pantera 50. I pulled my Pantera 50 off the shelf and gave it to a friend to play with for a while and put some gear back in it. I like the looks of the P6 canopy. Does it fit the Pantera 50? I'm guessing the P6 probably uses the Pantera 50 frames so it should?

I'm flying one

And yes, the P6 canopy is a direct fit on a Pantera 50.

I'm flying the P6, very stable and strong. I was out at the HC this past Sunday and was having so much fun, not paying attention to fuel and run out at about 300 ft altitude heli going away from me, I quickly gathered my wits and turn the heli towards me and started auto, worked ok till about the last 20 feet, lost all head power and dropped like a rock( I'm just starting to learn auto's) anyways crash damage: Landing gear only!! Everything else was fine, What a tough heli.

Mputu, no it's a 50 size heli. It's an updated Pantera.

This is a frequently asked question because of the availablility of a 91-conversion, which leads to some customer confusion.

To be fair, upon first seeing a P6 some wonder if it's a 700 because it's considerably larger (physically) than other 50-class models. Its presence thus, leads to confusion as well (but results in it being easier to see at a distance).

However, clouding the issue is the 700-conversion. This stretches the P6 to accomodate 710 mm main rotor blades (it's already equipped with bearings 40% larger than your typical 50-class model) and (of course) includes a larger head (and explains the P7 included on the P6 decal sheet). These versions have been flown (rather aggressively) on 14S with 6000W of power during testing.

Thus, your query is quite reasonable, but the answer is not cut and dried because there are several options, which allow the P6 model to be closely tailored to the individual customer's desires.
