I noticed this post and It's been several months since the last input.
You happy now?
I must say that 250 deg F is a bit high unless your fly comp 3D and plan to change engines after each weekend.

Pantera BBC tail issues
I had a newbie call me with a used Tiger 50. I offered to have him come out to our field as a guest and check his new bird out. Training gear and the old lady flew great. He is getting the Tiger Grin! I pulled out one of my Pantera BBC birds to fly. Note to all. This ship has not been flown for a long time as she was one of the test BBC ships many moons ago. Lit her off and it flew great....until the tail started to give some real wild shacking during punch outs. Some of you know the drill.
no control and deal with it! I set her down and all looked well. Back in the air and inverted flight was normal, until a I would jam the rudder.
All advanced pilots would just expect the visa card coming out of the wallet as the thumbs and brain knew things are not right.
I did get her down and no damage.
Looking over the bird I could not find anything wrong...until I did the wiggle test. Head. check! Tail check! Gyro mounting tape.....no go.
The tape holding the gyro was not happy. It was just a crumbly mess.
No wonder my tail control was funky. Thinking about it. I have about 25 hours on this prototype ship and years of flogging.
Please my fellow pilots. Check your mounting tape before you blame a solid ship.
comments?

Hi gang,
It's been some time and pulled out my BBC ships. I have a 90, and a few 80's with every bit of electronic bling you can think of.
It's just not as fun as a Pantera with a good old Hyper 50 and flying the curves. Don't get me wrong the ships flew well. Time to just fly stock and enjoy the warm air.

I know the drill dealing the BBC mod. Just finished building a new ship using a 90 pumped. It's all done and need to get it to the field for flight testing. Been having tooooo much fun driving the Boxter the last few weeks to get the BBC in the air. This week is the test hop and the Rodeo chopper SUV will be fired up as transport to the field. Funny how I have 8 choppers and 4 of them are ready for testing, yet the I really like driving the new toy every weekend to warp speed. Time to get back in the grove and fly.My name is Billm.

Call JB and you must know the drill.
If you want the BBC, He may not send it.
I'm telling ya. This mod is not plug and play. He will ask you about your modeling and noodeling skills. The BBC upgrade is, and can be a piece of cake. I have done five. Then again if your skills are not up to snuff. Your not going to get one.

Very stable ship and a fun build.

Just wish I could send you a few pics. but I can't.
My first panera just passed 70 hours of flight time flying 3D.
I have gone thru two hypers on this ship and wondering when things will explode. I will keep flying the proto ship.
The Pantera is solid for a trainer or a hard flyer.

Road toy is just a simple Boxster with the "chip". The plate frame says it all. "I would rather be burning Jet Fuel".
The new BBC is just a simple bird with a 91 pumped.
Test flight of the car is done. Next is the chopper with all the new stock bling should happen this weekend. Had a RX problem but I think it's solved with just a simple re-bind.
stay tunned as the test hop will be awsome....I hope.

Well said.
I use a MultiGov Pro to solve my head speed problems. Granted if I stab my +15 collective it will bog for a moment. I think the software is wondering..."What in heck are you doing" then it thinks. "oh, ok you ment to do that". Boom the head speed is up and yelling for more.
Set the head speed and go. It also tweeks my needle valve for on the fly changes regarding tunning. Plug and play and works great.

update on the build
Working on the BBC 91 Spec build and have a few things that needed some thinking.
Good news is that the I figured it out. The "Spec" engine will complain with a SOP fuel system. I got the fix.
So far the build is going ok with a few drives to the machine shop.
If your going to build a monster ship. Don't bitch at the the guy that sold you the starter kit. It is up to you to make it happen.
You will notice the servo wires. Just pushed out of the way for the photo.

Hey RR gang.
Im dumping in a O/S 91 SX Spec into my BBC.
Of course it does not fit. I need to blast out the bulkhead on the glow plug side to get the cylinder to clear. Cooling problems?
I'm going to go for it. Snorkel lines up for the cold air to the carb.

What?
The BBC does not come with instuctions?
You bet it does. It's your modeling skills. This project for the expert modeler and craftsman. Thats why you have to call the vendor for one. If he suspects the lack of skills. You don't get one.
Sometimes he makes a mistake and sends one out to the poor lad that is clueless.

Just to let you know that the Pantera in sub zero weather is not the problem. It is getting the Hyper to start. It takes a bit more glow drive and once it lights you should let her warm up on the pad. This will also let the gyro get into the game.
The Pantera is ready to fly once the support and electronics are happy. The pilot should be ready as well to fly in the cold weather.
Herc and I have done this for many years and we have more "carbon based unit" failures then the Pantera has.
have fun and shut up and fly all year long.

Well typed. I design both types of material every day. I could get into "warf and weft" of weaves in carbon, or type about injection molded parts with cycle times and polymers from the blender.
I won't. You covered it in a very basic post.
The pantera parts work "just fine" and a good bang for the buck.
Here is something to think about.
If your good...you don't crash!
If your learning you will crash and the back pocket gets light.
I do fly several high end choppers because I have grown from a novice to expert class. The Pantera is also in the mix and is my daily go have fun ship.

Skunk works is still working on the next cool ship
Just got to tell you folks that we are working on the next rev.
Just like the Tiger to Pantera morf. All of you that have or want to have a Pantera. The mods will fit the ship you already have.

Thats because the "deal" does not include the upgrade servo support brackets. The Special deal JB has is the basic ship and it will fly great without them. He had to cut a bit of bits to get the price lower.
JB did his homework on removing items that the normal flyer would not need. This trimming of parts gave all of you the killer deal. Trust me. The ship is awsome. Now if you are going to fly killer 3D. You may be thinking your going to need all that stuff. Not really as the other folks Choppers do not even have this stuff. If your a "real hard stick banging fool". Then the upgrades are ready for you, just to give your piece of mind. This will get you to next level of killing the sky. The brackets give you that support to the servos in very hard inverted piro kundrum moves.
I like killing the sky.

The radio glove is awsome. Been flying with it for the last 20 years.
The only mod is hand warmer pockets.
Winter flying is so much better. We fly in the Pacific Northwest Rocky Mountains. We get thick air in the winter that you sea level folks get all year round. Just something we deal with and time to chase the elk and deer off the field.
Bundle up and fly is how we roll.

I will still fly the Panera. I was just a click away to buy one until gondwnhard started to type about it. I noticed that the customer support was nill and the frenzy was a knock off and not a real ship.
Just flew my Pantera and EX in -5 deg weather and at 3,000 MSL.
The sea leavel troglights in warm weather are weenies and don't know what we have to deal with. I would be more then happy to have a frenzy donated to me so I can blow it apart in my flying conditions.
It's just going to get colder and after several years with the Pantera she flys when others drop to ground. The good news is that the parts are easy to find in the snow. I just hover over the holes to help the other pilots pick up the bits.

I have flown the frenzy 50.
Still hands down on the Pantera.
The deal is that the frenzy is a nice ship...but without options like the XS upgrades, and soon other amazing stuff that is in skunk works.
The other ships don't come near what the Pantera can do.
It's snowing now and time to get ready to fly my ships, Not the white stuff that is seen in RWC from a dude driving down woodside road.

Real good input here. I just adjust the servos until they sing and back off a few points.
I never use expo as this masks any problems with test flights.
If you need expo add it. If you fly a JR you will feal the ship and will not need it.

Marty, I don't have the new 55. I'm past that. I bet ya my 80 size mod blows away the 55 mod. I'm tooling up for a 90 upgrade to the XS.
As you know the XS (BBC) mod is still a good thing that all can get a ship that can get you in the air using a 50...learn to fly....Tweek the ship....and then add some more power without having to buy a new ship to upgrade.
Time to fly in the snow in the morning with the thick air.
The XS conversion is a must when your live way above sea level like I do. You folks living at 0 MSL must be going wild with this thing.

I have been using the Radio Glove for several years in the winter.
Another trick is to get a little hand heater from Cabelas. I made a little pocket on the back side of the glove. I place the hand heater in the pocket and really keeps the glove toasty.

Why Change? I for one have only a few problems with the Pantera. Let me tell you this was dealing with the Tiger MKI and MKII. The Pantera has been a solid ship, and I sometimes wonder. Have I been lucky driving the poop out of the ships with minor problems?
Looking into a Turbine ship. should I bitch if it goes into a 10 grand ball of smoke? I don't think so. I will set things up and review everything before flight and have fun.
I have seen new plank flyers crash using a trainer. does that make the ship a bad thing.....?

So I ask. What vendor has the 55 so I can "in your face" my LHS.
I don't think the BBC is dead. We are flying far larger engines then the 55.

We get our forum back? I Talk to JB all the time with new Ideas and product feedback. We all know that the ship is solid and as with any product we can find flaws.
Let's get back to the basics folks. We are here to help new and old pilots enjoy the rush of learning to fly and the long hard path to expert class.
We should not spend our time POO POOing (sorry pet) the ship, but help others in the building and flying of the Pantera. "It is what it is". Is that not what we want to do here? We all agree that if you want to call JB. He is ready to take your call. With that said, JB has much to offer and should keep them to his own webpage. Sorry John but this is a forum of helping New and old Pantera pilots, and not your soap box. I would hope that if your allowed back you temper your typing in Helping the fellow, as we continue to do in this forum.
My two cents.

OK, I will give the motor a go once the price drops.
Do we need to change pipes or will the MPII still work?

It does look like a blade failure. I must ask.
Do you know the head speed (or a WAG) when things went bonkers?
If the pantera had a tail blade failure the ship would of spun and not explode Marty!

What a great day. Temps in the 40's with a wind chill of 32.
Funky winds played with the planks..even my U Can Do sporting a .91 four stroke. Yet the stock Pantera and the BBC II flew without a problem. Yankin and cranking the ships without a care.
Time to charge up for Sunday. Snow is just a few flights away.

With three tanks thru her, you should be able to get off the rich kick and start clicking in the needle valve. The Pantera is a blast in the wind. I think it's more stable then my EVO90!
If you go with a MultiGov. Get the Pro version. Most of my ships have them. I like the automix funtion that the pro has. Thanks to JB's forward thinking. You even have a place for the mixture servo!
It's 45 and 10MPH winds today. Peeeerfict flying weather for the BBC's.

Frost on the field
Had the day off today and headed to the field for a few test flights.
The Field was crunchy this morning. Yea!
We will be in the low 20's tonight and 40's for Saterday.
I love flying this time of year. The air is so dang thick, and the BBC's are so happy.
Can't wait for the first snow to fall in the next few weeks. The flying gets better and better.
So long thin air of summer! We live for winter flying as the air gets closer to sea level in our neck of the woods.

Had problems in the Tiger MKII days.
No problems with all of my Panteras. All six of them from several production runs.
I think I'll just sit back and monitor the show.

Here is a trick.
Stick both magnets together. Take a sharpie and mark the top magnet face. Now mark the bottom magnet "back side" still stuck together with a shapie. If you do it right you now have ID'd both polls of the magnets. Rough up the unmarked side of the magnets and rough up the two nice fan mounting holes a bit. Mix up some JB weld and apply the goo to the fan magnet mounting holes. Place the magents into the holes Sharpie side facing you, roughed side to the goo. I use a par of chopsticks to place the magnets into place.
What you have done is install the magnets so you have both polls are presented to the sensor and your also balanced. The sensor will only see one magnet. When you mounting the sensor make sure you "strain relief" the wires.


my two cents.

Ghia,
Here is the link that should get you started. The pin swich only works (I think) with the regulator. Give them a call to find out.
let us know what you learn.
http://www.fromeco.org/Products/02F...91/Default.aspx
In the past I have used the Badger pin switch and also works well.
Check my gallery out. Your going to see a few applications of both.

Machinehead01, Well typed. I have been to some fun flys that a newbie shows up with his ship and can't get it to fly. I enjoy helping the chap set up his ship and get it in the air. I don't bad mouth the ship, but teach how to set it up. I would hope that my goodwill will help in the next buy. Wow, that "flight rep" dude helped me so much and I watched him fly....Mybe I should look into a Pantera.
Thats how I roll.

Nice to know we have a few new pilots.
The Pantera will only fly as good as you do.
I remember when I was crashing the Tiger MKII.

Flogged the panera without a failure like yours.
I did have one on the Tiger MKII. It was my bad as the main thrust bearings were backwards. I now use it to trim the flowers.

Good deal.
You should have no problems in flight. You may see a bit of white dust from the gears seating. This is normal.
