hey folks,when I bought this pantera it was neon pink so naturally I did what any civilized helicopter pilot would have done,,,, I painted it with house of colors ,it has some pretty heavy metal flake,now I need your opinion on what I should do next,for obvious reasons I cant just leave it solid black,I need some brighter colors but I'm all out of ideas,the carbon blades are white ,I need your input to help me decide if I should put stripes or flames or just leave it alone,PLEASE give it a good look over and help me with a cool paint scheme.. ... thanks

well I was able to fly my tiger moth again today with no damage,I did however encounter some strange flying characteristics,aside from being very windy the plane had a strange bobbing manner,not sure if it was the wind or my cg,maybe the servos are a little slow to react,I sure could use some more experienced opinions from my fellow flyers. thanks for any help

ok groups,today I'm throwing all caution to the wind ,ok no i'm not,actually I'm taking every possible precaution there is to fly for the first time my 1/5 scale tiger moth,I converted it to electric,added a scorpion 4025-16 brushless motor running a 13-6 prop with a hacker jeti master 77 opto esc running on 8s two 4s 3700 in series. I'm hoping for a good flight,all control surfaces have been trimmed.when and I mean when all goes well I'll post the video on youtube and post again in my blog.I want to thank everyone for helping me with some of the details with my power managment.
