Build Log
The RCM&E Panther Autogyro trainer

After smashing my PT 25 at the Fly-In due to a receiver battery failure (my fault!) I don't have a knock about tractor model.
I get bored easily and fancied a build to replace it, it was a toss up between a DAG and the Panther. Having built 5 Dag's I thought it would make a change to give this one ago.

Fuselage is now virtually completed, just need to build the gimbal and knock up the blades.

Will upload some pictures before the maiden.

Racey looking number there! just don't know how you manage to magic these from nowhere. I assume this is going to be a three blade head.

Joe,
Of course but let me get it flying and fully test things as I have added a few new ideas to this model.
Covering started but not finished, need to make up the blades and add all the electrics.


Regards

Rich

Joe,
I was going to install the BP motor I bought off Dave, it came out of my 1st RPG. I am thinking now that this motor may be a bit heavy, see how things turn out when everything is installed.

I have to tell you that I think that Joe is getting a bit pushy,and just between you and me,I dont think he can be trusted. He's just trying to get your guard down ,by telling your model looks so good .You do know that can trust me' buddy.'
PS I do think that the colours are VERY nice and the shape is GREAT.

Dear Rich,
The only reason I am being pushy is I think this autogyro is an amazing creation and shows off your intellect. Have I ever told you I love your accent? It's not very well translated here on the forum, but it makes you sound very intelligent!
Your best buddy in the whole world!
Joe
P.S. I'll be sending you paypal money soon!
P.S.S. I think your friend Chris only want's you for your body (the autogyro's body) and doesn't appreciate your design....just my two cents!
